In this setup two remote branch offices are connected to the virtual center of the headquarters.
One branch office has an ESXi 5.0.0 and the other an ESXi 5.5.0 The HQ virtual center is at v. 6.0.0, recently upgraded.
The surebackup jobs of both BO are configured directly to their hosts (and not to the vc).
Recently, the SB jobs started to fail repeatedly. I am seeing a weird behavior of VMware in both cases:
the SB vms that are being registered DO NOT appear in the vcenter at all;
connecting the vClient directly to the hosts, the Recent Tasks pane shows an endless stream of "Reload managed entity";
most vms in the sb job fail to power on.
There have been several changes and upgrades to the infrastructure recently so it is not possible to track down the beginning of the problems to a specific change.
I have no clues of what it can be and don't know if I have to search in Veeam or VMware direction for causes. Before opening a case I'm looking for suggestions here.
