Unable To Backup Particular VMs
I’m running BE 2012 SP1A and I have an issue backing up VMs under a particular folder. I have 2 jobs: One for all VMs except for Citrix VMs and another job for Citrix VMs. The Citrix folder is a subfolder of the root. I have several other subfolders with VMs underneath them as well. The VMs in the root and all other sub folders back-up fine. Whenever I try to back-up the Citrix folder I get the error message:
"Error 0xe000942a – Backup Exec did not find any resources to include in the backup. Check the backup selections for this job and make sure it includes resources that are available for backup."
I’ve edited the job and can browse and select the VMs in the Citrix folder. If I move the Citrix folder VMs to the root I can back it up. If I move it to any other existing folder I can also back it up. However I can’t back up VMs under the Citrix folder. I created a new folder; put a Citrix server in there and that backup failed as well. I can backup the server if I add a job backing up the ESXi host directly and use the root credentials.
So it would definitely appear that the issue is a permissions one to the Citrix folder and new folders that I create. As with my other BE 2012 site that works fine, I have a domain account assigned with the administrator role defined at the Cluster level and propagated down. This was set in Host & clusters. Although I never see the permissions on the folder when I select VMs & templates on the folder, I do see the permissions propagated to the VM. (Also note that the permissions are identical for all other subfolders that work for backups.)
So it’s very weird. I can understand if I couldn’t back up anything, but I can back up everything, except VMs in one folder and newly created folders.
Any idea what might be going on?
