How did you set OB2IPCKEEPALIVE?  Assuming this is emulating a Windows server, you need to add these linse to the 'omnirc' file

 

            OB2IPCKEEPALIVE=1                              Activates the KeepAlive mechanism

            OB2IPCKEEPALIVETIME=900                expressed in ms, 900 is 15 minutes

            OB2IPCKEEPALIVEINTERVAL=60        Time between sending out the KeepAlive packets

 

You need to save teh file as

 

Program Files -> Omniback -> omnirc

 

making sure that teh filename does not have any extension, like 'txt' or 'tmpl'.  You also need to stop and restart the DP INET service

I would also recommend that you implement KeepAlive on the Media agent

Check if there are still processes active on your vCenter.

Sometimes Snapshot Cleanup takes longer in background, causing the Job to stale.

Another Possible Cause is hanging vepa_bar.exe on your BackupHost, check for those and kill them.

After that I recommend to also clean up <omni>\tmp\ and <Windows>\temp\vmware-SYSTEM\
