Error seeking to write in Catalyst

Hi,

from time to time the Backup of a special VM inside a JOB will fail with the following error:

Unable to open DataSession on Catalyst store vmexp01 object VMXBackup_3625187c-6aa7-4e15-ae3c-99f17469e5c1_6 with Exception message:Error seeking to write in Catalyst (OSCLT_ERR_WRITE_IN_PLACE_NOT_SUPPORTED -3201)

It could be that this error wont come for weeks or over a month and then 2 times in one week, 1 week nothing, the next week it will come for one or two times. There is no recognizable pattern or me.

It´s only one VM that will have this error. Other VM's will be OK doing thier Backup in the same Catalyst Store.

VMware ESXi 6.0.0 build-5224934

VM Explorer® 7.1.001 (64-bit)
