You are using DDBoost connection to a DataDomain device. Backup to the DataDomain device starts to hang. In the log of Veeam agent that is writing the data to the device you can see agent crash dump is generated after trying to open backup file for read/write access:
In the same log DDboost library logs error Err: 5012:
[TIMESTAMP] < thread_id> DDBoost| ERR |in use. Err: 5012 [TIMESTAMP] < thread_id> DDBoost| >> |Failed to close file '[DFC- datadomain] veeamddboost:/ Job_name/Job_nameTIMESTAMP.vbk ( file_size )' [TIMESTAMP] < thread_id> DDBoost| >> |An exception was thrown from thread [thread_id]
As seen in the generated crash dump, the issue is caused by a crash of libDDBoost.dll library from EMC that Veeam B&R uses to communicate with the device:

As advised by EMC, this is related to a bug in DDBoost plugin version 220.127.116.11 or earlier that may cause libDDBoost.dll to crash on ddp_read call.
The issue will be resolved with the release of DDBoost SDK 18.104.22.168 by EMC. The necessary compatible DDOS version for the fix is DDOS 22.214.171.124, and it would also need to be released. The new version of the plugin will be used in Veeam B&R version 9. On earlier versions of Veeam B&R, DDOS, and DDBoost Plugin, connect to DataDomain device over CIFS protocol to work around the issue.
Please apply to this section of product user guide for more information about adding CIFS/SMB (shared folder) -based repository to Veeam B&R.
