Challenge

Attempting to connect via RDP to a Veeam Proxy VM in VMware during a Virtual Appliance (hot-add) backup fails.

Cause

This occurs due to a hung backup job utilizing that specific proxy, and that proxy is not configured to have automount disabled.

Solution

In an Administrator Command Prompt run the following commands:

  1. diskpart
  2. automount disable
  3. automount scrub

Example:

User-added image

 

More Information

Note: If this issue is occuring on Domain Controller which has been configured as a Veeam Proxy, DO NOT perform these steps. Disabling automount on a Domain Controller will cause Application-Aware Processing to fail (http://www.veeam.com/kb1697). It is not advisable to configure a Domain Controller as a Veeam Proxy.
