Backup error: GetSvcVersion

Hi all,
I have a problem with a backup job.

I want to backup a VM virtual machine from my pc (veeam is installed here), but after 15 min I retrieve this error: 19/09/2016 16:43:38 :: Error: La chiamata di procedura remota non è riuscita e non è stata eseguita. RPC function call failed. Function name: [GetSvcVersion]. Target machine: [].

The VMWare version is 5.5 essential plus and Veeam is B&R 9.

Any ideas?

Many thanks
Best Regards!

Hi and welcome to the forums!
The issue is generic and can be caused by number of things.
I would recommend working on it with the support.

Does the said machine for which backup job has failed host any additional role, such as backup repository or backup proxy? If so, try to re-install Veeam Transport component on it and see whether it makes any difference.

Otherwise, try to restart stuck service, as Nikita's pointed out; should help in most cases.
