Error: Timed out requesting agent port for client sessions. --tr:Failed to initialize agent.

Post by mriksman »

I have a Veeam Windows Agent Free 2.2.0.589 backing up to a Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 4. The support contract has expired. We are currently in the process of overhauling the entire system to use VUL and license each of our Agents. But for now, it is what it is.

This PC is on an industrial network, and is locked down. It hasn't had any configuration changes in over a year. Yet 2 days ago, the backups started failing. The error on the Veeam Agent is

Code: Select all

Error: Timed out requesting agent port for client sessions. --tr:Failed to initialize agent.
I tried a restart, but it didn't help.

The Job.Backup_Job_SA-SH-T34.Backup shows the following.

Code: Select all

Hi Michael

This forum is run by product management. We don't have the necessary training or tools to diagnose such issues.
I can only see from the logs that the agent couldn't be initialized. Most likely there is more information in other logs.
But please don't post logs to this forum. It's forbidden by our forum rules.

You can open a support case for the community edition. But even with a paid contract, probably you must upgrade to a supported Veeam version first. Which is not possible without an active maintenance contract.

Best,
