Last week we "sucked in" our vCenter server into VMware. Before that it was a physical Windows server. After this change, every other day or so, we are getting this error during backup:
"Transmission pipeline hanged, aborting process."
We have a large backup job that backs up 215 VMs, and sometimes one of the VMs (but not the same VM every time) gets this error. And B&R does a retry of that VM, and the retry succeeds.
This error never occured when we had the physical Windows server as the vCenter server. Does anybody know what this is all about?

That message could mean a few things I think. In this case, I would look in the direction of the VM not being reachable or talking back. Maybe because the bigger issue here is the communication with VCenter where there is an issue or so. Difficult to say with only this one message.
I would suggest to open a support call (with the regular post the support case ID here and the outcome after that) so the engineers can look at the messages before and after this in the logs. They might (no promises as this typical message is very generic) see where the communication is lost or hanging

I suggest contacting support for that. I just searched a little bit internally and there seem to be various reasons for that from corrupted VMs to network and resource issues. So it might be a coincidence between P2V of your VCenter.
Please post the case number here for reference.

[MERGED] Error: Transmission pipeline hanged, aborting process. When backing up exchange 2016 server
Please can someone assist, for the last 3 weeks now we are not able to backup our exchange server which is a vm on VMWare ESXi. The backup starts fine and runs till about 20% and then just hangs and eventually fails after 5 hours or so with the error, 'Transmission pipeline hanged, aborting process." We have 2 other jobs running on the same Veeam management PC and they run fine, I have tried using different proxies, different repositories, even created another management PC all return the same result. However if I do an agent backup from within Exchange 2016, that goes through fine.I have reported the case to Veeam support but I am just concerned that we are sitting ducks without a proper backup for the last 3 weeks.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
