issue backing up a vCenter - [70:18] Could not find object 'myvc01' in virtual environment....

For 2 weeks we cannot backup our vCenter. (we had the licenses renewed with the new capacity based ones)

The rest of the VEAgent clients are backed up successfully.

The error is :

[Normal] From: VEPALIB_VMWARE@mymedia01 ""  Time: 10/18/21 07:16:16
    Resolving objects for backup on vCenter 'myvc1' ...

    Hello

    Are you sure about VM is really present into Vcenter? Please double check it. If is already present please try to create new backup and select this VM. The change of type license shouldn't be the root of issue.

    I really guess that VM was moved or deleted, or maybe UUID was changed for any reason.

    Best Regards

  • Thanks a lot JBasisio, recreating the backup specification resolved the issue.

    I suppose the vCenter was rebuilt and as you say its UUID has changed.

    Thanks again for the quick and expert advice.

    All the best:
