Re: SQL won't freeze after v6 upgrade

I also have a replication job for a server running SQL Server 2008 hosting vcenter and remote veeam database that prior to upgrading the job to V6 the replication would complete ignoring the warning of " Unable to release guest. Details: VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout"
With the V6 job I recieve the same message but the job fails. I have the same situation as wberryment above anyone got any reccomendation on how I should proceed?

Hi Guys,
My customer is still running the old veeam server just to run the Veeam DB. Any idea for the release date of the fix. My case # is 5159575

Hi Alexandre, this would take at least a few weeks minimum. Thanks.

Hi,

We have the same problem.

Veeam in a VM, SQL in another VM. Backups were working with v5, we upgraded to v6, and VSS starts to fail in SQL server every time.

It must be something different in v6, because we didn't have any other change.

Thank you,

Hi,

Veeam and SQL Server Express in a VM.
Working with v5 and with v6 it fails with the same message.

Waiting for this fix :)

I've opened the case 5165361, but I can't get the patch 2.

Can you pass me the link?

Thank you

B&R 6.0 Patch 2 is available through our technical support, but this hotfix doesn't address the issue discussed in this thread.

Hi,

When I selected "Failover to network mode ..." on the local proxy it was able to backup, replicate and copy the local VM where I installed Veeam v6 and it's SQL Express DB on. When "Failover to network mode ..." was unchecked the jobs failed. Can someone confirm that this workaround works?

Kind regards.

Jeroen, according to VBR6 release notes you cannot use virtual backup proxy to backup Veeam server in hot add mode. That's why when you disable failover to Network mode, the job fails. However, this is not connected with the issue discussed in this thread (application-aware processing of SQL server with Veeam database).

Just wanted to add that I'm experiencing the same error. Veeam DB backup *always* worked correctly in V5 but *sometimes* will not freeze in V6. It happens maybe two or three times a week on a SQL VM that is replicated every hour and backed-up once a day. It's not a busy SQL server.

Guys,

I'm experiencing the same issue wit the "Unable to release guest". I have several other 'identical' servers except for 1 thing. The server that is giving me the error is hosting the Virtual Center Database. I'm wondering if that might be a side effect. I'm going to try and move the Virtual Center Database to a physical server and see if that helps.

Chuck.
