Veeam B&R backup failed

Post by linux4guru »

Hello,

Has anyone ran into this problem with Veeam B&R 7.0.0.771 ?

Issue - Getting backup failure: Task failed Error: Host with UID 'ESX host ID' was not found.

What was done to the ESX host on 01/02/2014 - we upgraded the ESX host from version 4.1 to 5.0 and backup failed since.

Can someone here point me to a direction to resolve this issue?

Much thanks and Happy New Year...!

Hello, looks like the ESXi host BIOS UUID has changed. First, try revoking the license for that host using Menu > Help > License > Licensed Hosts, and see if that helps. If not, you will have to re-register your virtual infrastructure with B&R from scratch (or open a support case to perform the required configuration database edits manually). Thanks!

Error didn't indicate issue with licensing but support suggested that too - revoke that ESX host and run the backup job again which fixed the issue.

Thanks,

thomas
