You may come across an issue when trying to backup a Windows 2008 System State, where the backup keeps failing with a 30214 error.

“DPM failed to create the system state backup. If you are trying to create the system state of a Windows 2008 Server operating system, verify that the Windows Server Backup (WSB) is installed, and that there is enough free disk space on the protected server to store the system state. (ID 30214 Details: Internal error code: 0x809909FB).

This issue occurs because Windows Server backup needs to be installed on the Windows 2008 server for you to be able to perform a system state backup.
