Error: EC8F17E6: Cannot enforce size and count quotas.
This happens with various Symantec backup and imaging software (BE, BESR, Ghost). Basically this occurs irregularly when backups (images) are targeted to a shared network destination, and settings for monitoring disk space and automatically optimize storage are set on multiple machines, that use the same destination.
On Windows 2003 I got the warning AC8F1FAD: Distributed COM (DCOM) is currently disabled. Remote users cannot connect to this computer unless you use dcomcnfg to enable DCOM.
I ran the common procedure to enable network access to MS DTC as described on ME817064
and the error ceased.
Error EC8F17B7: Cannot create recovery points for job: Drive Backup of New Volume (E:\), (C:\), TEMP (D:\), New Volume (F:\), New Volume (I:\).
Error E7D1001F: Unable to write to file.
Error E7D1003C: There is not enough space.
I just added the BESR error and ran a test install on another server to see what was different. I determined that my BESR server was missing a service. It seems when I ran LiveUpdate on my BESR 8.01 server to update it to 8.02, it caused an issue which basically stopped and unregistered the symsnap service. I found more info on "Symantec Support Document ID: 304230".
To manually add this service, follow the step below:
1. Open a DOS window
2. In the DOS window type: sc create SymSnapService binpath= "C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec System Recovery\Shared\Drivers\symsnapservice.exe"
3. Press Enter
4. You may have to refresh services if you have the window open. Once the service is seen, go into the properties of it and set it to start automatically
5. Reboot machine.
