BE 2014 won't backup VMs on Hyper-V 2012 R2
The Backup Server is running Server 2008 R2 Standard with Backup Exec 2014 installed. All updates have been applied from live update.
I'm trying to backup VMs on a server running Hyper-V 2012 R2, but I continue to receive a "Final error: 0xa0009679 - A failure occurred querying the Writer status for a Hyper-V virtual machine" error. Running VSS Admin List results in a "Retryable Error" for the Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writer. I have tried restarting the server already and that didn't help. Any tips?
Event Viewer also gives me this at the time of the backup failure:
1) Application and Service Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Hyper_V-VMMS > Admin:
Failed to fix-up absolute VHD paths in configuration of virtual machine 'VM Name': Account restrictions are preventing this user from signing in. For example: blank passwords aren't allowed, sign-in times are limited, or a policy restriction has been enforced. (0x8007052F). (Virtual machine ID AEB2B426-05DD-4C4F-AC8F-330B0D57B8D4)
2) Windows Logs > Application:
A VSS writer has rejected an event with error 0x800423f3, The writer experienced a transient error. If the backup process is retried,
the error may not reoccur.
. Changes that the writer made to the writer components while handling the event will not be available to the requester. Check the event log for related events from the application hosting the VSS writer.
Other details: The Hyper-V 2012 R2 OS has been separated from the VMs on the HD. OS is on C and the VMs are on D. VM backups continue to run perfectly fine from a Hyper-V 2008 R2 server. All servers mentioned are using the same storage device.
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone.
