Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor

I've noticed a reoccurring issue on backup jobs with the Application-Aware processing enabled. Every 4 of 5 days we must restart the Hyper-V Volume Shadow Copy Requestor (vmicvss) on the VM being backed up. This occurs on wide range of VMs; some with SQL or Exchange some with-out any specific VSS enabled applications. All are running on Server 2012R2 Failover Clusters.

I see post-job activity but is there a way in Veeam to run a Pre-Job Activity ?

Hi Brian,

You can schedule pre-job activity if you use Windows Task Scheduler to launch the job. In your case the workflow should look like this:

1. Launch a pre-job script via Task Scheduler
2. Then trigger backup job via PowerShell sciprt

P.S. what errors do you see in the Windows Event log when this issue happens?

Thanks!

Btw, Veeam B&R v8 will allow to specify pre-job script via GUI.
