Hello all,

First time posting. We are trying to run an Application Aware backup for a SQL server and running into the error below. The backup used to work but now fails. We have increased the vss timeout based on the article listed below as well.


VEEAM Version:
8.0.0.917

Server to be backed up:
Server 2008Ent R2 x64
SQL 2008

Code: Select all
Error:

[MERGED]: Failed to prepare guest for freeze

Veeam Logoby ismailkaratas » Thu Apr 21, 2016 7:38 am

Hi,

I am using Veeam Backup & Replication v9. I am taking backup of SQL Server but I am taking an error. The Error is " VSSControl: Failed to prepare guest for freeze, wait timeout 900 sec.". I read this link "https://www.veeam.com/kb1377" and added "VssPreparationTimeout:1800000" in regedit but it is giving same error. Could you please help me?

Regards,

Ismail Karatas

Hello,

I am still having this issue after adding the following registry key "VssPreparationTimeout:1800000" the only difference is this time i got the following message , "7/18/2017 8:30:32 PM :: Processing XXXXX Error: VSSControl: Failed to prepare guest for freeze, wait timeout 1800 sec," instead of 900 sec.

My Case # is 02215466
