1 Introduction

The File Server Remote VSS Protocol (FSRVP) is a remote procedure call (RPC)-based protocol that is used for creating shadow copies of file shares on a remote computer. This protocol facilitates the backup applications' tasks in performing application-consistent backup and restore of VSS-aware applications storing data on network file shares.
