Are those VMs located on a different ESXi host? If so, it could be that Veeam can't reach the host because of routing or firewall issues.

Forum search shows that restarting ESXi management agents helped in similar cases, though I'd continue looking into this with the help of support.

Can you backup other VMs on these hosts?
This error often is caused by network issues(firewall, routing,...).
