Veeam server slows and hangs - veeam agent process

Veeam Logoby RickArmitage » Mon Jan 30, 2017 9:20 am

Morning all,

We have a Server 2016 Veeam server running All works well for a week or two but then the server gradually slows and eventually becomes inaccessible. We typically connect to it internally using RDP and connection just hangs. Additionally the remote management console is unable to connect. A reboot 'fixes' this for a period before it goes again.

What I have noticed is that in Task Manager, we seem to be accumulating Veeam Agent and CMD processes over a period of time. It seems like Veeam is generating these processes for use in backup jobs but then not terminating them at the end of the job. Ultimately I think this is the root of the problem.

Has anyone else come across this and fixed it?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Rick, please contact our support as this need more details.

If I should guess, is that you have not enough RAM for the amount of things that you did or that the Antivirus scanner blocks access to our executables (check KB1999 for this).
