Is this a fairly common issue? I'd expect lots of people to have their Veeam databases on a separate SQL server. Or are there other certain conditions involved . . ?

I know that the research was already completed, and in fact it does affect SQL hosting Veeam DB only, so it is not very common. Nevertheless, just like any blocking issue reported by customers, it will be addressed in a timely manner. Thanks.

Hi Anton. You are right sorry. Only veeam dB server is affected. Alex

I've also seen this issue with SQL servers using a clean new install of v6. I've created a Support Request [ID#5158984].

Adding the ESX(i) hosts manually and then editing the job to select the Host and then the VM stopped the issue from happing. But, required that DRS/VMotion not be done on these VM's.

Hi
My customer had an external server to move Veeam DB to. I followed the post Move Veeam database only to another sql server to move Veeam DB and i am now able to backup my virtual SQL server with success. I have more time to wait for the patch ;) Rgds

Support told me that veeam does not support to have its dB frozen while a backup was running but it was like that since V5 ...

We are planning to change database interaction pattern during VM freeze to make that supported.

I'm having the same issue. Veeam Backup and Replicaton installed on the same server as SQL Server 2008.
Worked before upgrade from 5.0 to 6
Open ticket: 5160628
Awaiting a fix.

I opened a case and they followed up. They are telling me that you can't use Application Aware Processing to backup the server running Veeam Backup and Replication if you have the SQL database which Veeam is writing to on that same server. You will get a "Unable to release guest. Error: VSS Control: Failed to freeze guest wait timeout". I have other databases on this SQL server besides Veeams and I can't get a complete backup of that server unless I do SQL backups, and turn off Application Aware Processing in the job. All I'm saying that this wasn't going on in Version 5. I was told that it wasn't supposed to have worked in Version 5 either.
