Cause

Your current version of Veeam Backup & Replication is not fully compatible with vSphere 5.5.

Solution

Recreate virtual lab on supported ESX(i) host.

More information

For vSphere 5.5 compatibility please update to Veeam Backup & Replication 7.0 R2.

Note:
In addition to recreating the virtual lab after updating, you may need to manually unmount the vPower NFS datastore from your ESX(i) host in vSphere Client so that Veeam Backup & Replication can recreate it.
