ProxyHost and EMC Snapshots

ProxyHost and EMC Snapshots

ProxyHost and EMC Snapshots

Running Simpana 7.
We are attempting to back up snapshots of an NTFS file system on our EMC using ProxyHost. Most of the time it works fine but once every week or 2 the back up fails on the scan phase because the snapshot is corrupt. CV support have washed their hands saying it is an EMC problem and EMC say it is a CV problem because ProxyHost is not using VSS.
Has anyone succeeded in getting this configutation working?

Thanks in advance

ERROR CODE [72:20]: Failed to open directory [F:\blahblah]. Possible reasons nonexistent path/file or hardware problems.

pre scan script

admhost lun_flush -o g:

REM # Start the Snapshot session for the G drive with the session name Data_A_CommVault_Backup_Session

admsnap start -s Data_A_CommVault_Backup_Session -o g:
