Our setup is pretty basic as follows....
- Veeam running on a physical 2008R2 box backing up to local storage
- No separate backup proxy servers
- One backup job to backup all 24 VMs running on a 2008R2 Hyper-V cluster
- VMs are a mix of Svr 2008R2 and 2012
After upgrading B&R to v7 (very straight forward process) I found that I was getting the following warning on all of my 2012 VMs in the B&R backup job log...
Guest processing skipped (check guest OS VSS state and integration components version)
Looking in the Application Event Log on the affected VMs I see the following error...
- Code: Select all
Log Name: Application
Date: 20/08/2013 21:14:39
Event ID: 13
Task Category: None
Windows cannot perform an online backup of this system because scoped snapshots are enabled. To resolve this, disable scoped snapshots by creating the following registry value on this computer:
PATH: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore\
Incorrectly editing the registry may severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data on the computer.
<Provider Name="vmicvss" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-08-20T20:14:39.000000000Z" />
Interesting to note that these errors also exist before I performed the v7 upgrade to B&R but no warnings were ever shown in v6.5.
I have today added the registry key given in the above error to one of my 2012 VMs and will see what change this brings when the backup job next runs.
