The tasks array included at least one null element

KB ID: 2128
Product: Veeam Management Pack for System Center
Version: 8.0
Last Modified: 2018-05-16


Management Pack fails to display a segment of the environmental topology or a portion of performance information. The vmspi.log (default location: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Veeam Virtualization Extensions for System Center\Collector\Log) contains the following entries:

+** [VP038] buildInventory failed [***], The tasks array included at least one null element.
+** [VP050] performanceDaemon The tasks array included at least one null element.


In complex and highly distributed environments collector threads are stalled.


The hotfix ensures that stalled threads are processed properly.

Follow these steps to apply the fix.

  1. Stop Veeam VMware Collector service.
  2. Make a backup of VeeamCollector.exe (default path: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Veeam Virtualization Extensions for System Center\Collector).
  3. Unpack the downloaded .zip and replace VeeamCollector.exe with the executable from the archive.
  4. Start Veeam VMware Collector service.
NOTE: In case you installed the Update 5 for Veeam Management Pack and the issue occurred again, reapply the hotfix from this KB article.
