Hello Admins,

Have a great day...

I'm having issues with my VM backups where it's used to fail in scheduled backups ( 7 out of 35 VM's ). But when we rerun before business hours one by one or parallelly they are getting successful.

Requesting your advise on this how to proceed further.

Speak to your VM team to see if they are doing something with the vCentre during that time. Is the error consistent and at the same time? Is it only for one of the data movers? Or maybe the same ESXi server? Seems like the vCentre (or ESXi server, or VMs) was down or unavailable. Maybe even the set of VMs. Make sure they're not running some automated script that's messing with the backups.
