Challenge

vSphere 6.5 backup/replication jobs may hang forever if you’re using Windows Server 2008 R2 (or Windows 7) backup proxies.
 
Agent…Source.log files contain lines similar to the following:
[16.01.2017 16:16:08] <  1380> vdl| Loading VDDK library. Version: 6.5, directory: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_6_5',

[16.01.2017 16:16:08] <  1380> vdl|   [vddk] CoreDump_CoreDump: faking exception to get context

Cause

OpenSSL DLLs required by VDDK 6.5 fail to load correctly due to a Side-By-Side conflict related to MSVC runtime libraries.

Solution

To resolve the issue, download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package on every Windows Server 2008 R2 used by Veeam as a proxy server (including Veeam server itself, if applicable).
 

More information

This is planned to be resolved in a future Veeam Backup & Replication update.
