VMware Backups via AVVI trouble

Hello community!

I have an one trouble with my Symantec BackUp Exec 15. I try to do incremental backup  of one VmWare virtual server and get an error number 0xe00095a7

I googled a few articles in knowledge base where need to disable vmware virtual driver and filesystem sync driver but it does't work for me. What can I do yet ?

  • Your issue seems to be enviornment specific, as issue occurs only with one specific VMware VM. I would suggest you to check VMware Tools version and ensure that is updated on problematic VM if not than try updating and check if that works or else try re-installing latest VMware Tools excluding Volume Shadow Copy Services Support and Filesystem Sync Driver options.
