Hi Firdaus

Please keep working on your support case. Not much we can do over the forum posts.

I had the same issue after upgrading from 11.0.1.1261_20230227 to 12.0.0.1420_20230413.
The registry hive Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam VSS HW Snapshot Provider was missing.
The support installed it via a reg-file with the following content.

------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam VSS HW Snapshot Provider]
"LogDirectory"="C:\\ProgramData\\Veeam\\Backup"
"Port"=dword:00001843

Hello and Welcome to Veeam R&D Forums!

Many thanks for sharing the solution with our Community but I'd like to recommend validating this workflow with our support team to all future readers of this topic. The fact that it worked in your case does not necessarily mean that it applies to any case with a similar error (which is quite generic).

Thanks!

Hello

I had the same issue after upgrading from 11.a to 12.0.1.2591 P20230314.
I create the registry entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam VSS HW Snapshot Provider]
"LogDirectory"="C:\\ProgramData\\Veeam\\Backup"
"Port"=dword32:0x00001843 (6211)

The issue has been solved

Thanks very much
