Try to restart the vCenter Web Client Service. If you're using vCenter server on a Windows machine, this cane be done using services.msc; for the vCSA use vCenter Management web page. If this doesn't help, then please contact our technical team for further assistance.

we have the same Problem. On vCenter 5.5 (Windows Maschine) with Enterprise Manager 9.5 it worked without any Problems. Now we migrated to vCenter 6.0 Appliance (latest Version) we always got the the same Error. Tried to uninstall and re-install the Plugin and also the Enterprise Manager several times, but it doesnt work.
BTW: There should also be a notification that you have to start vsphere web client with Port 9443 otherwise the Plugin fails to load.

Hi...did anyone figure out this issue? I just migrated vCenter 5.5 windows to VCSA 6.0 Update 3. I reinstalled the plugin after migration. On Enterprise Manager is shows installed as plug-in version 220.127.116.111. The odd thing is that the vCenter version still shows as 18.104.22.16852642 when it is now version 6.0 U3. In the vCenter web client I get two errors when I go to the Veeam plugin. On he Summary tab I get Server error: Session expired and on the Settings tab I get Server error: Failed to get applications settings. and settings are empty. Thanks.

i've got the same problem...VCSA 6U3 (22.214.171.124100) an BEM 9.5 (126.96.36.1993) Plugin registration is no problem and everything seems to be fine. In vsphere web client veeam overview ist empty and message "Server error: Session expired" pop up shows up. Settings are empty...after completing settings and saving them, the same pop up is shown "Server error: Session expired". Time settings of BEM Server and VCSA are equal.

Unfortunately, the previous poster didn't mention his support case ID, so I cannot update this topic with a solution. Can you contact our technical team and let us know your case ID as a reference for other community members?
I have a similar issue like this as well with Veeam 9.5 Update 2 and VCSA 6.5D. The plugin installs but when selecting it I get a connection timeout constantly. Tried all things in KB even the cleanup tips.
Case is SR # 02142384 which has been escalated to Tier2.

I have the same issue on VCSA 6.0 but not on VCSA 6.5. I saw few other posters above have reported that the issue wasn't there with 5.5 and happened only after upgrade to 6.0. Is the issue specific to some VCSA 6.0 build? Has anyone of you got any feedback or workaround from Veeam support?

Please can you contact our support team to investigate the issue and share the case ID number here. They can request you to collect additional logs and then I will discuss it with the QA team and probably that will help us to find a solution. Thanks!
