Veeam Satellite Process is not cleaned up

Veeam Logoby Talom » Wed Jun 22, 2016 8:51 am

Hey Guys,

yesterday i noticed, when i'm cancelling my powershell script with CTRl+C the corresponding Veeam.Backup.Satellite process won't be killed.
My reporting scripts are sometimes cancelled automatically because of timeout or something else and after a few weeks i have a lot of satellite processes that are stuck in the task manager.
After a while my scripts just fail because of too many existing processes

Is this a bug in Veeam or can i write a cleanup script which cleans up unused satellite processes?

Actually, the said process should have a pre-defined timeout (around 5 minutes, if I'm not mistaken) after which it should be killed. If you see a lot of stuck (not killed) Satellite Process, kindly, reach our support team for further investigation.

Within a ticket you can point out that the problem is not directly related to PowerShell, as support team do not take over tickets regarding non-working scripts, etc.
