Since veeam v7 there is an new feature called transparant vcenter database backup .
So i have an Windows 2008r2 SQL Server that has the vcdb (vcenter database) on it.
I have Veeam V7R2, and when backup the sql server it failed very fast with the following:Unable to release guest: Error: VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout
Error: VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout
Before v7 i backupped the sql server by adding the esxi host as a seperate host (outside vcenter), that worked. But i want to use the way without that workaround.
I have also set the EnableDBexclusions, and i see the "vcdb" database is on the list with the short servername before it. i added the same rule with the ip adress also, and retried the job.
Any help is appreciated.
