Getting status code 156 on Hyper-V client VM backup

Created: 29 Mar 2013 | 1 comment

Created a new policy for a VM client and getting a few errors.  The first one you get anytime you make changes and save the policy:

Snapshot could not be created with Hyper-V_v2 method  (Status 223)

When running a backup, I get the 156 status code. 

Finally the bpVMuitil.exe file crashes consistently (errors in app event log)

Attached policy config, application event log and NBU logs.

By application log, bpVMutil.exe seems crashed. What version of NetBackup are you using? Please tell us with minor version.

And, how did you set Primary VM identifier in Hyper-V tab? It is not clear from extracts you attached. Please try VM displayname and specifying VM with VM name listed ing Hyper-V console.
