Problem with Backup Exec 2012 SP1 and VMware vCenter 4.1 (with VMware View)
Today I installed a fresh BE server with the following specs:
- Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2 SP2 X64 (it is the View Broker)
- Backup Exec 2012 SP1
The customer wants to backup the entire VMware View 4 (about 50 Virtual Machines) and a server which is there for that site using Backup Exec. When configuring AVVI, we can see the Datacenter an all the Virtual Machines. However, when trying to backup them, the task just stays in queue status. I try to cancel it and it does not cancel the job...I have to kill the processes in order to do that.
At the vCenter, it says it is creating a snapshot and finished about 2 minutes later (which is kinda strange). I was thinking the datastore has run out of space, but I tried another datastore with about 50% of free space and the same happens. BE does not show any errors and there's nothing in the SGMON dump.
The only error I had was when I tried the job for the first time. It seems Vmware View had wrong credentials to connect to the server. They applied a KB and the error is gone. However, the backup problem persists.
Thanks for the insights.
