Networkless backup in ESXi 6.5

We started encountering "Cannot connect to host over web services" problems after upgrading our vCenter to 6.5. This was caused because we used extended ascii characters in the password of the backup user. This is most likely a bug in the VMWare API, there was no problems with VIX API.

It is certainly not impossible this is due to the new API. Do you have a support case for this, I would like to make sure it is escalated for R&D for review? Thanks.

R&D was already able to reproduce the issue internally. We'll report it to VMware shortly. Thanks for the heads up!

Turned out to be a Veeam B&R issue that will be addressed in Update 2.

For some reason I didn't get any notifications from your messages. But great to hear you have found a fix. Is there a chance to get a hotfix on this issue before Update 2?
