Backup with Veeam Backup & Replication failed

Hi all,

the Backup of a guest failed since 5 days on one of my hosts.

The eventlog says:
ID 8229
A VSS writer has rejected an event with error 0x800423f3. The writer experienced a non-transient error. If the backup process is retried the error is likely to reoccur. Changes that the writer made to the writer components while handling the event will not be available to the requester. Check the event log for related events from the application hosting the VSS writer

vssadmin 1.1 - Verwaltungsbefehlszeilenprogramm des Volumeschattenkopie-Dienstes



The only things I changed are:

- I disabled IPV6 on the guest
- I converted one partition of the guest to a fixed disc


Do you have an idea what I can to do find a resolution for this problem?

Hi Klaus,
Looks like one of vss writers has failed. The best you can do is to contact Veeam technical support for the closer investigation.
Please provide your support case number once you get it.
