Re: Backup Job Failed due to closed underlying connection

Post by rurouni » Mar 10, 2015 7:25 am

20100,
I'm comparing the vpxd.log file from the vcenter log folder and the Veeam Backup Job log folder. Inside you should see a Log Folder with the name of your failing job.Inside you can search the file "Job.Name.Backup.log"
Look at the errors like "underlying connection" was closed. or the latest one i posted Error [ViJobSanSource].

Regards

Vitaliy, I have not logged a case with support for this yet. Should I?
Please, do.
Should I mention Rurouni's case too?
Yep, might give support some directions.

Thanks.

Thank you for providing the ticket number. Let's wait and see what support says, once logs are analyzed.

Hi

Not much from support yet. I get one email every couple of days, usually at night time. I usually reply straigh away but have to wait another day or 2 to have a reply!).
Anyway so far, I have been asked: "restart Vcenter management center", "do you have antivirus or/and firewall on the VM?", etc.

The issue is intermittent and not a huge issue. the job does not fail, it comes only with a warning. Once it happened when I manually ran the backup and I was in front the screen. It looked to me like the snapshot from Vmware to 3Par back to Vmware was the part that failed, and instead it only did a Vmware snapshot. However I could be wrong in what I observed.

Rurouni, do you had more chance with your case?

Thanks

Hi, for me solution has been provided by support using a registry key which limits the number of simultaneous snapshot performed on the vcenter until devs provide a new patch for v8

The rurouni's case number is 00743334. So, you can make a reference to it via your ticket and let support engineer compare the behaviours and see whether the said fix applies to your situation. Thanks.

The registry fix has been applied for a week now and the problem has disappeared from all backups.
Thanks again for your help

Ivor, did you let your engineer know about that? What is your support case ID number?

Any news on this issue? This is driving me nuts.

Neither upgrading vCenter to 5.5u3 nor applying patch 2 (Veeam B&R 8.0.0.2030) brought any help on this topic.

Since we switched onto a 3par all flash array we have this issue, nobody seems to know what causes it.
