Hello, I'm running Veeam 8 on a VMware VM and want to backup the whole machine, using VeeamZip.ps1, which uses powershell command Start-VBRZip.
I'm running the script from command line.
powershell.exe C:\Backup\Veeamzip.ps1 -VM 'machine' –Destination "\\192.168.0.16\ESXi-Backups" –AutoDelete "In1Month" –Compression 5 –DisableQuiesce $false Output:
- Code: Select all
Job started Building VM list

Processing machineError: ChannelError: ConnectionReset
Backup file \\192.168.0.16\ESXi-Backups\Backup_machine_2016-04-19T114513.vbk
Job finished with error at 19.04.2016 11:54:02
The file created on my NAS has a size of 30.844 KB
Previously, the backup was working. Last successful run was 20.03.2016
Other machines than the one running Veeam Backup & Replication can be backed up without any errors.
Machine data: Host: VMware ESXi 6.0, 48GB RAM 2 XEON
Guest: Windows 2012 R2 (latest patches), 12 GB RAM, SQL Server 2012
NAS with almost 2 TB free space, 4xGigabit LAN
When I run the script, the machine looses connection (RDP) after a few minutes,
vSphere looses vonnection, too. Veeam admin console shows the error above.
Manual execution on the admin console VeeamZip to \\192.168.0.16\ESXi-Backups does work, by the way. Just a few seconds loosing RDP connection.
What can be wrong? Any ideas? Increase Timeout? Exclude SQL-Server DATA folder?
Thank you in advance
