Veeam backup proxy detected, changed block tracking is disab

Post by pcrebe » Mar 21, 2012 8:20 am

Hi,

why i have a log "Veeam backup proxy detected, changed block tracking is disabled" for a VM that ISN'T a v6 PROXY? This happens in a replica job that starts after (many hours) a backup job of the same VM. This happends every day.

This don't happens if i start another session of the relica job again.

Thanks,
Carlo

Hi Carlo, please open support case and have them investigate the logs to see why VM is being detected as Veeam backup proxy. Thanks!

What was the resolution on this. I just seen this in my log even thought it used CBT.

Hi Eric, what is the VM in question? Proxy server?

Just had this issue with a Veeam 9 upgraded from 8.

The VM is a 2003 Server.

Solved by resetting CBT as per Veeam KB 1113 https://www.veeam.com/kb1113

Luigi, do you say that you had a warning message that this VM is a proxy server or just CBT cannot be used message? The KB you've referenced in the post refers only to the second case (just don't want other community members be confused) ;)
