Seems like a problem with resource allocation?

Or else an issue on the client with creating snapshots of drive letters.

Please show us all text in the parent job.
Ensure that bpbkar and bpfis log folders exist on the client to see what is happening there.

Have child jobs started at this point or does it 'hang' at the last begin Create Snapshot entry?

If so, you need the logs on the client as per my previous post.
