Socket has been forcibly closed

Veeam Logoby jrwilmoth040707 » Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:16 am

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5.0.1038

Background:

We were using a copy job to send backups across a 100/100 VPN connection to a NAS.
The VMs were copying OK, but the diff merge kept taking wayyyyyy too long. I think the job was attempting to pull the data back across the tunnel to perform the merge locally.

So two days ago:

We deployed an Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS server (a VM) in our COLO.
I mounted the NAS share via NFS.
I added the Linux server in Veeam and created a Linux repo mapping to that NFS path.
I removed the copy jobs from DB, rescanned the new repo, and then mapped the job to them.

Issue:

The job runs flawlessly for 15 minutes.
Then the copying VMs fail with "Error: Socket has been forcibly closed. Failed to recover connection."
The pending VMs eventually fail as well (without copying any data).

Things I have tried:

Dropping from 4 simultaneous tasks to 1; no change in symptom.
Throttling; no change in symptom.
Increasing RAM in Linux VM from 4 to 8GB; no change in symptom.
Monitored a continuous ping test across VPN to Linux VM and to NAS repo; also monitored NFS mount; no issues even as symptom occurred religiously.

I opened a ticket with Veeam and submitted logs. Still waiting for a solid indication of the root cause and resolution.

Any ideas?

This is my NFS mount command, just in case someone asks:
192.168.5.20:/volume1/Veeam /media/backups nfs hard,intr,nfsvers=3,tcp,bg,_netdev,auto,nolock 0 0

Have you checked firewall(s)?

Have you looked in the OS log files for additional clues?

This is the case number 02368996.

The source-side firewall is a Dell SonicWall. The destination is a Cisco router. Today I did comb through the SonicWall GUI's VPN settings and tweak a few things based on information I found online. Unfortunately, that didn't affect the symptom so I set the variables back to what they were. I also reviewed the logs and noticed something there that I brought to our network engineer's attention, something possibly related to the two routers negotiating.

The odd thing is that when I run a continuous ping test from B&R server to Linux VM and also to repo in destination, the ping tests are virtually flawless. Low latency. Maybe one packet dropped every couple hundred etc.

Historically, the symptom has occurred right at about 15 minutes. But once today it continued to about 30 minutes and then did the same thing.

I ran the job again this morning while monitoring the Linux agent logs. The job was running fine for about 15 minutes and then the connection died and this showed up:

Code: Select all

What I don't understand is why in Veeam B&R it says, "11/8/2017 8:30:13 AM :: Processing [vm name xyz] Error: Socket has been forcibly closed. Failed to recover connection," when if I just right-click > Sync Now and start a new cycle, it runs fine for another 15 minutes or so. Why does the job just hang? What is it waiting for?

Wonder if it would be a port issue on one of the machines... See this link for Veeam port usage https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95

Have you checked the event logs on the Windows VBR server? Firewall on same server? I've had somewhat similar issues with some machines in my environment. One thing I've learned is to check the firewall on a machine.

You can use an interesting tool called cryping, it allows you to ping a port - runs on Windows. I've found it to be useful.

Hope this helps.

CryPing was actually VERY helpful and a new tool in my toolbox--thanks!!

So here is what I did:
    Configured Notepad++ to refresh automatically
    Started CryPing.exe -p 22 -t 192.168.5.21 > results22.txt
    Started another CryPing.exe -p 2500 -t 192.168.5.21 > results2500.txt (since I could see in the log below that 2500 was the negotiated port)
    Opened these two files and C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\Copy_job\Job.Copy_job.BackupSync.log in Notepad++ (with silent refresh on etc)
    SSH'd to Linux backup repo server and enabled firewall and added rules to allow port 22 and 2500-5000/tcp
    On same, used Screen to split and monitor /var/log/ufw.log and Top
    Kicked off job


Results:
    Ping to SSH was always successful and remained successful throughout.
    Ping to 2500 was only successful when job started. I'm assuming this because the Linux agent only listens after it is activated by the SSH command from B&R.
    The job ran flawlessly at about 15MB/s for approximately 15 minutes. Then the connection died. See log excerpt below.
    Ping to 2500 started timing out at the same time.
    UFW on Linux backup repo did not report any denies or drops.

Conclusion: Because port 2500 only responded to pings when I started the B&R job, which leads me to believe the Linux agent then started listening, could it be that when the connection and the pings mutually died, the cause is the Linux agent? Could it be the agent died or dropped the connection for some reason? What logs should I pull to look at this symptom from that angle?

It looks like the socket closure is happening ~6 minutes into the job based on the log file. You might find within one of the Linux log files "connection reset" - you can grep for it. If you find this string, look around at other close by entries to see if there is any indication as to what is causing the issue.

Any word from Support?

RESOLVED!

We increased the SonicWall TCP timeout from 20 minutes to 60 minutes and ran the job. It ran for a full on hour before timing out! That coincided with SW renewal of support, so today our network engineer jumped on a call with SW support who clarified that TCP packets contain timeout. Apparently even though data is streaming across port 2500, the SW is not seeing a keep alive packet so basically thinks the connection is dead. So at the timeout, it drops the connection. We increased the TCP timeout value to 1440 minutes, and the job is still running at 3 1/2 hours.

I really appreciate everyone who has contributed to figuring this out. Veeam support was right in the end regarding the source of the problem, but I am thankful that everyone was willing examine and consider other possibilities.
