I have a case open on this (00174224) but have been informed it's a Windows issue not a Veeam issue....
In a nutshell, all backup jobs failed on Friday night with the following error:
Code: Select all
Job [SERVERNAME] cannot be started. SessionId: [de4ab443-04b1-4557-819a-ba3592085fa0], Timeout: [362.2981005 sec] AgentManagerService: Failed to start agent, Host 'VCENTER' Wait timeout in CPortAsker::WaitAnswer()
I have tried in vain to fix the Windows install, but can't seem to get anywhere - even from booting via the Windows CD and trying all manner of boot fixes.
My next hope is to at install Veeam somewhere else so I can backup all of the working servers. As i cannot access Veeam I cannot backup up the settings, though I do have backups of the Veeam SQL databases. I'm hoping it's as simple as creating a new VM, installing Veeam, overwriting the databases with the backups, creating some repositories and going from there....
Any guidance or suggestions?
P.S. Having recently found out about it being a bad idea for Veeam and vCenter to reside on the same VM, i have ordered a new physical machine to replace one host as we do not have sufficient resource to do so at the moment, this arrives next week so some sort of temporary solution to ensure data backups until then will be ok as I will then be able to recover vCenter (hopefully) and all will be ok again.
