MSDN article KB955078 - System state backups failing in MSCS environment



We have a an MSCS cluster running on Windows 2008 with SQL server 2008.

When we run a system state backup on the Passive node we get the error mentioned in Microsoft article KB955078 because of the SAP executables installed onto one of the shared disks.

Has anyone else encountered this and if so what did you do to resolve it?

Symantec have suggested we install the SAP executables on a local disk but if we do that then the cluster won't really work smoothly because the ASCS instance willl have to shut down. I'm not even convinced SAP would support this kind of install.

Any suggestions welcomed.
