Hi every One,

I have this issue when I launch the script to backup AD LDS instance with cmd line dsdbutil:

A VSS writer has rejected an event with error 0x800423f4, The writer experienced a non-transient error. If the backup process is retried,
the error is likely to reoccur.
. Changes that the writer made to the writer components while handling the event will not be available to the requester. Check the event log for related events from the application hosting the VSS writer.
Operation:

    Hi,
    Do you mean it failed when you use dsdbutil to backup AD LDS instance? If there is any misunderstanding, please feel free to let me know.
    Please change the "Log On" account for the service from "Local System account" to a domain administrator account.
    Please make sure that your server is fully patched.
    If you use WSB to backup the AD LDS, will it work?

    Thanks for your time!
    Best Regards,
    Mico Mi
