GRT enabled VMware backup fails
Created: 14 Nov 2012 | Updated: 26 Nov 2012
We use the VMware Option to backup our Vcenter. It works very well, but recently it fails with this error.
V-79-57344-5893 - The object was not found, or could not be accessed (VMware backup).
Looking at the backup logs the files are from MS security updates. Last weekend I restarted the server in the hope it would fix it. In addition I installed the latest MS security fixes too. But unfortunately the backup still fails. Affected are two servers where GRT cannot find the files in the C:\Windows\Softwaredistribution folders.
The KB article says to install the remote agent on the servers. Of course they are installed and restarted several times due the reboots.
I believe it is not a big deal since most backup fine, but the failed backup bothers.
