0x80042316 or Error: VSSControl: -2147212522


You receive errors on backup or replication processes during VSS guest processing.


0x80042316 translates to the VSS error “VSS_E_SNAPSHOT_SET_IN_PROGRESS”.
This error is typically indicative of another VSS backup occurring on the guest.  This is usually due to multiple backup strategies running simultaneously that utilize VSS. Any utility to create a native backup of an application with a VSS writer may utilize that application’s writer to perform periodic backups.
To resolve, ensure that your disaster recovery processes do not overlap when run via their schedules.
