What does Veeam have to say about this? I thought, and it sounded like the NetApp integration would be fully supported on both sides of the equation. From what NetApp is telling me if its an issue on the NetApp side they won't help at all.... and did me a favor pointing me in the direction of the problem.
Below is the email from NetApp support saying they don't support this usage. The email also included direction about how to fix it, but not the final solution.
Your case has been assigned to the SnapX team so that we can help resolve the issue you are experiencing. My name is Nolan Boles, and I will be assisting you.
I will not be engaging in the scheduled conference call with Veeam as we do not support third party usage of the Data Ontap VSS hardware provider. The recommendation is to either configure the application that is making the inappropriate call to use the software provider, or uninstall the Data Ontap VSS hardware provider using the command ‘navssprv.exe /u’ from an elevated command prompt. NetApp does not support 3rd party usage of the Data Ontap VSS hardware provider can cause unwanted snapshots to be generated on the storage system causing issues such as space shortage, busy snapshots, and the application may not manage snapshot cleanup appropriately. Please consult with the vendor to reconfigure the application to use a different provider if that is the method of addressing the issue that you select.

Unless I am mistaken, using the NetApp hardware VSS provider should be supported for Hyper-V off-host proxies, but not in-guest. I took a look at your Support case, but it looks like the engineer was unable to get a hold of you. Would you like me to re-open your case so this can be investigated further?

Then while the vm is backing up you can browse to the lun in oncommand system manager and under snapshots, watch the snapshot be created.
I just use the Hyper-v snapshot provider as my Hyper-v hosts have enough resources to process the backup onhost.
