Backing up / Replicating a virtual VCenter server

Post by Chris128 » Nov 22, 2010 9:57 am

Hi Guys,

What is the best way to backup and replicate a virtual vCenter server? At the moment it is the only server that always fails or has a warning in our Veeam jobs.

The error we get in our replication job is:
Creating snapshot VSSFreezer: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout CreateSnapshot failed, vmRef "vm-26", timeout "1800000", snName "VEEAM BACKUP TEMPORARY SNAPSHOT", snDescription "Please do not delete this snapshot. It is being used by Veeam Backup.", memory "False", quiesce "False" An error occurred while communicating with the remote host.

and we get a similar error in the backup job but then on a retry we we get this warning:
Creating snapshot VSSFreezer: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout

Any ideas?

Thanks
Chris
