Connection refused during Backup Copy Job

Veeam Logoby mfirewalker » Thu Jul 20, 2017 7:33 am

Hi there,

I have a backup jobs that creates restore points for Hyper-V VMs with application aware processing to a local ReFS fast clone repository. So far so good. Additionally, I have a backup copy job with GFS retention that copies the backups to a Veeam cloud connect repository (service provider). However, recently I constantly get "Processing <VM name> Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it" for 4 of the 7 machines during the backup copy job. I can't seem to find a log entry, KB article or forum post that relates to this issue. I have another backup copy job to the same repository with more than 20 machines that works just fine.

Final error in event viewer:
Code: Select all
VM <VM name> task has finished with 'Failed' state.
Task details: Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
Maximum retry count reached (5 out of 5)


Then there are basically two different additional entries, one for 2 of the machines and one for the other two:
Code: Select all
VM <VM name> task has finished with 'InProgress' state.
Task details: Error: write: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host
Failed to upload disk.
Agent failed to process method {DataTransfer.SyncDisk}.


and
Code: Select all
VM <VM name> task has finished with 'InProgress' state.
Task details: Error: read: End of file
Failed to upload disk.
Agent failed to process method {DataTransfer.SyncDisk}.


Any hints where to look further in this matter are much appreciated.

Hi,
generally the "actively refused" errors come up when connection is attempted to wrong port number.
Please contact technical support directly with this and share your case ID here. Thanks!
