    We have a 5 fresh installs of 2003 on standard HP proliant equipment.
    Shadow copy works on 2 of them, on the rest it gives problems.
    Microsoft has been unhelpful, even though I have paid for answers.
    These newsgroups have been unhelpful, since nobody seems to answer any posts.

    Does anybody know if MS is going to fix Shadow Copy?

  4. Hello,
    there is nothing which needs to be fixed (maybe besides some permissions to
    avoid everyone be able to restore files/folders he has access to on top of
    existing data).

    Not the best style, to blame the newsgroups for being unhelpful, if you do
    not give any details like:
    What are you trying to do?
    What are the exact error messages when you do what?
    Which corresponding errors did you find in the event logs?
    Which kind of storage hardware is used, are the drivers the built in from
    Windows Server or (maybe outdated) supplied by the vendor?
    And when exactly did you post where?
    The only post from you I found which could be related is one from 13. April,
    also showing not really detailed problem description.
    Best greetings from Germany

    servers all running shadow copy with no errors

    Other than venting, this really doesn't server any purpose. You provide no
    details and then insult the participants of the newsgroup......

    If you are *really* looking for help, I'd suggest posting again (with more
    details and less venom)....
