Backup jobs that specify only the Hotadd transport mode will fail if a virtual machine is backed up from a VMware vSphere 5.5 environment.
V-79-57344-38371 - The Hotadd transport mode is not supported in this version of VMware vSphere
This issue may occur due to vSphere not able to open the disk. Vddk 5.1 U1 does not work on vSphere 5.5 and VMware is aware of the issue.
Presently these is no workaround to allow the use of Hotadd transport mode. The only workaround currently available is to specify a different transport mode that is supported by your environment in the virtual machine settings of the backup job.
