BE16 and vCSA 6.5 snapshot error W2012/2016

Hi Team, upgrading vCSA to 6.5 I had a new issue with BE16 Backup - an error message that SnapShot cannot be create ... see the attached file.
Do any of you heared an error like that?

First, this is nothing new to BE16 or vSphere 6.5. When Backup Exec does a snap of a VM it does a quiescing snapshot. IF there's too much activity then this will fail. This same snapshot can be done using the vCenter UI.

Right-click the VM and select Snapshots -> take Snapshot. When the VM is powered on you'll see a check box for Quiesce guest. Select this.

You can do a couple things to try and resolve this. First figure out why the VM is too busy to be quiesce.

Here are some TechNotes on the issue:
