Hello. I am using veeam backup for my hyper v and vmware guests, which works finde.
I have one Win 10 client (guest), which is not domain joined, I have problems to get a backup of the machine running (file indexing enabled). I use the local admin credentials. ...

Failed to prepare guest for hot backup. Error: Failed to connect to guest agent. Errors: 'Cannot connect to the host's administrative share. Host: [VW10-DL]. Account: [.\locadmin]. Win32 error:Der Netzwerkpfad wurde nicht gefunden. Code: 53 Cannot connect to the host's administrative share. Host: [192.168.0.123]. Account: [.\locadmin]. Win32 error:Der Netzwerkpfad wurde nicht gefunden. Code: 53 '

Hi Marco,

If you don't have direct connection to the backed up VM from the backup server, then one of the reasons could be UAC. It requires built-in local admin account to be used otherwise you will see the error like this.
Please review this thread for additional information and don't hesitate to contact our support team. Thanks!
