Backup Fails With Error Code "2155348010"

1 post in this topic

Hi all,

First posting ever to a technical forum, so please treat it kindly..

I have just upgraded from WHS v1 to WHS 2011. The only missing part is to get the backup to external HDDs up and running.

My first aproach was to fire up my trusted WD 2T studio edition II and connect it with ESATA. The disk will not show up in the backup Wizard. but by using Windows Server Backup service under Server Manager i can manage to do a one time backup. When trying to schedule the backups, it fails. I have connected the drives with Esata, USB 2.0 and Firewire, same results. I have also checked the disk with different checking software, the disk is OK.

Edit: i later assigned a Letter to the disk and reformatted it using 512K sectors even that is not the same as byte sectors as described in the thread. Still wont show up in the wizard, but i could selected as a destination using volumes under backup service in Service Manager. At least this disk finally works!

Then i bought a Seagate Goflex 3TB Disk. It shows up in the wizard, but the all the backup fails with the same error code "2155348010"

A very good thread possible explaining the error can be found here: [url=http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsbackup/thread/5d9e2f23-ee70-4d41-8bfc-c9c4068ee4e2/]

From the thread "The windows backup software was designed to work with disks that have 512 bytes per physical sector."

Most high capacity disks today operate with a higher physical bytes per sector number. And its impossible to find that information on the outside of the package when trying to buy a new disk.

Its a list of tested external disks to be found here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1780.aspx

I have tried to visit a couple of shops to buy one of the recomended disks, but have not found any of them. Could the forum members recomend any external 2T+ disks that works and tell me the preferred way to connect it?

    • My WHS v1 (home build) starting misbehaving and finally needed a new system disk.
      After lots of threads, trial and errors, AF and non-AF drives, and lack of the Server Reinstallation choice it has finally progressed.
      Weeks of frustration. My recent attempts proceeded well but all ended up without the rebuilding of the Storage Pool (6 drives).
      The drives are detected and show up as "not added" in Server Storage and as "non managed" in Disk Management.
      There is no C:\fs on the SYS volume.
      It appears that the RebuildPrimary stage of the reinstallation, mentioned by some posters, was not successful. Has anyone found a way to force the rebuilding of the Storage Pool on reinstallation?
      I have tried X: Files v1.5.5 and the original Microsoft Disk with the same outcome. [My next step will be to migrate the "shares" and "folders" manually - it would have be quicker to have done this initially.]
    • Hi, I can use all feature using the connector software in my local network. But when on the road, I connect via xxx.homeserver.com. Login works, can access my shared folders, but when I want to access the WHS 2011 Server Dashboard or my WHS 2011 Outlook, I got an error like this: The Computer can't connect with the Remotedesktop-Gatewayserver. Contact your network admin. (translated from german) . On an Windows 7 Home and on a 7 Pro Computer this worked. The same problem happens on my Windows 10 tablet. Only local working with the connector software. Windows 10 is version 1607. Any suggestions what this is?
    • Hello All, I've tried searching on the forum but was unable to find a good walk through on moving a whs V1 to new hardware. Many years ago now I built a server out of an old dell gx270.  That box is really showing its age and is having problems.  Currently the system will boot but it no longer has video and I have to remote into it to see anything. If memory serves me correctly there was a way to save a backup of the server data. Can I simply make this backup of the data and switch out the server hardware reattach the drives and load the backup? How do I get the existing computer backups to move across?   Thanks for any help you can provide.
    • I have the same problem.  I will try the suggestion of repairing "task scheduler" I'm also considering upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2   See my post 
    • Thanks for the input; and yes, I am using Stablebit, a totally awesome pooling tool if I may say so.
