Google Fumbles

The answer to almost every question can be found using Google. But every now and then I come across a situation or a problem where the answer is not to be found on Google; at least not near the top of the pile. And believe me, I am pretty good at querying Google to get the answers I need.

Only by publicizing such Google "fumbles" can we hope to correct them. So, let's get the word out about the questions that cannot currently be answered by Google and let's get the answers!

Problem #1:

Small Business Server 2003 Backup fails approximately two days out of five. It is set to backup Monday - Friday at 8 PM. When it fails, the backup log show, "Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0x8007000e. ... Not enough storage to complete this operation." However, storage is not the problem. One fix suggested on Google is to set the Volume Shadow Service to start automatically. But that doesn't solve the problem.

Problem #2:

A different instance of Small Business Server has started reporting an error when you try to load the Monitoring and Reporting page from Server Management. Server monitoring and reporting emails also report this error.

The page cannot be displayed
An error occurred on the page you are trying to view.

To work around this problem, perform the following steps. After each step, try again to access the page.
  • Ensure that the MSSQL$SBSMONITORING service is started.
  • Ensure that the server is not low on memory or disk space.
  • Restart the server.
  • Verify that the server is functional and that there are no system-wide problems.
  • Run the Set Up Monitoring Reports and Alerts task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.
None of this works.
