Replicating a virtual VCenter4 server

Post by bezza »

I currently have two production DL380G5's with roughly 10 VM's running, i also have a DR ESX4 server in another building ready to accept replicated VM's. I am using Veeam backup and replication version 4 and have sucessfully configured and tested replication of all my production vm's to the DR ESX server. However when i come to replicate my virtual center server (Which is a virtual machine) i get the following error:

0 of 0 files processed

Total VM size: 40.00 GB
Processed size: 0.00 KB
Processing rate: 0 KB/s
Backup mode: SAN/NBD without changed block tracking
Start time: 11/11/2009 9:26:58 AM
End time: 11/11/2009 9:33:00 AM
Duration: 0:06:01

Creating snapshot
VSSFreezer: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout


I am also unable to create a backup of my virtual center server either, it fails with the same error. Am i missing something here or is this not supported?
Any help would be greatley appreciated.

Thanks,
Aaron.

Hello Aaron,

Please have a look at the following threads, discussing how to backup/replicate vCenter VM: VSSFreezer Failed on SQL server hosting vcenter/veeam db, and that one VSSFreezer: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout

Hope it answers your questions! Thank you.

Hi vsafarov

Thanks for the quick response, yeah i kind of had an idea that may have been the problem, wasn't sure if it was a supported configuration or not. I will give the solution in the second link a go. Thanks for your help.

Aaron.
