VSS System Writer is not found on this system

The VSS System Writer is not found on this system:

While backing up Windows 2008 and 2012 server on EMC Networker and you are getting below error, there will be many causes for this error. This is a very common permission issue.


98266:save: The VSS System Writer is not found on this system.  The backup is stopping because the System Writer is required for a successful system state backup.  Have the system administrator check the VSS infrastructure and fix the issue.

You should first try below solution:

Start or Restart below services:

1. COM+ Event System
2. COM+ System Application
3. Distributed Transactions Coordinator
4. Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
5. Volume Shadow Copy service
6. Networker remote exec service

And try to take test backup, if it fails again then you should go with below Microsoft solution.

The system writer fails because permissions to files in the %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\ or %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames directories are incorrect.

Solution:
To resolve this issue, type the following commands from an elevated command prompt:
Takeown /f %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /a
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(RX)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(F)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\temp\PendingRenames /grant BUILTIN\Users:(RX)
Takeown /f %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\* /a
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(RX)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant "NT Service\trustedinstaller:(F)"
icacls %windir%\winsxs\filemaps\*.* /grant BUILTIN\Users:(RX)


net stop cryptsvc
net start cryptsvc


Type the following command to verify that the system writer is now listed: vssadmin list writers


If the system writer is missing, check the Application event log for the following event
