Veeam – Freezing guest operating system VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest

You may get this error while you are trying to backup your vCenter as a VM.  This happen due to a bug in Veeam Backup and Replication 5.0, specially if you checked the checkbox Application-aware image.

This happen if you are trying to create the Backup job of vCenter VM from from the VC itself.

To overcome this issue, simply;

1. Add the host where the vCenter is running.

2. Delete the previous Backup job that’s pointed to the vCenter

3. Create a new Backup Job and select the vCenter VM from the host where you have added in step 1.

This should solve the VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest
