wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:c:
When running the command I received the following error message:
The backup storage location is invalid. You cannot use a volume that is included in the backup as a storage location.
The resolution for this problem was adding a new Key and DWORD value to the system registry. Create the following:
Create a key called "SystemStateBackup"
Set the value of this entry as follows:
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1
After creating the registry key the system state backup now completed successfully.
