1709 and backups

On December 31, 2017, in news, by susan

I’m monitoring a possible issue (again hat tip to Peter Perry again) with client backups (and backups in general) once 1709 is installed.

In my 1709 testing I’m not seeing this, but I haven’t rolled it out firmwide to get a good feel.  Anyone else seeing this in their networks?

    Deleting shadows copies on the client running the command below as admin then rebooting will fix this issue sometimes.

    vssadmin delete shadows /all

    Received a call from Microsoft support. They reproduced the issue on their labs. Stay tuned for a solution.
