VeeamVssSupport service periodically stops

I use ServerAssist to monitor all services on our servers, and I'm noticing that periodically a service called VeeamVssSupport stops during a backup job. ServerAssist sees this and immediately starts the service.

I don't see this service in the Services list. Should I?

Should this service be stopping?

Should I tell ServerAssist to no longer start this service when it sees that it is stopped? Normally I would just set the service to Manual start (provided that the calling application knows to start it) because ServerAssist ignores all services which are marked as Manual.

Hello Mike, VeeamVssSupport is not a service, and you should not see it in the Services list. It is non-persistent runtime "agent" that is automatically deployed to VM when you perform backup, and it is normal that it stops during backup (after VSS freeze has been performed).
