We are using Back-up Exec 2010 R3 SP3 to backup several VM's running on 2 standalone ESX hosts (No vCenter).

We use Back-up to Disk to Tape and our back-ups to disk are running fine, however our duplicate jobs to tape are failing due to the following error:

Job ended: maandag 13 januari 2014 at 10:49:37
Completed status: Failed
Final error: 0xe0009578 - Unable to copy the virtual machine disk using the VMware VixDiskLib.
Final error category: Resource Errors

For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-38264

We are not able to pinpoint which VM duplicate is failing of the several machines being backed up.

we need some assistance!

This issue was apparently fixed with a patch, but this should already have been included in SP3. I'd recommend opening a support case with Symantec, and then posting back here with an update.
