Hourly backup failing randomly

Post by morty » Feb 19, 2019 2:10 pm

I have a backup job running hourly that is backing up a single VM. This job was running great for over a year but then ever since upgrading vCenter to version 6.7U1 this job has been failing randomly once or twice a day with:
Task failed. Error: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond is the vCenter server.

Again, this job runs fine for the vast majority of the time but once or twice a day (sometimes more) it'll fail the hourly backup. I've tried deleting the job and backups and recreating with no success. Also, I thought it might be the VM so I tried the job on another VM and the same thing happens. Before I open a support ticket, I thought I'd ask here, what might the issue be?

edit: I'm on Veeam B&R v9.5.0.1922 and I've done the registry API fix for vCenter 6.7U1

Hi Ryan, I recommend contacting support directly, since logs review is required in such cases. Thanks!
