An upgrade operation from Veeam 8 to Veeam 9 (or from Veeam 9 to Veeam 9.5) fails with the error message „Error occurred during certificate processing”.
The following lines can be found in BackupSrvLog.log located in C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Setup\Temp :
|***Veeam*** Binding certificate to port...|
***Veeam*** VmWinError has been occurred. Error: 6.
Error occurred during certificate processing.
The below commands in CMD produce an error “The handle is invalid”:
|C:\>netsh http show urlacl|
The handle is invalid.
C:\>net start http
The service name is invalid.
This is caused by an HTTP service issue.
Either the service is not started or it is disabled in registry and cannot be started.
a) Change the start type of the service in registry from 4 to 3:
b) Reboot the server.
c) Verify that the service was started by running "net start http" command in CMD.
d) Start Veeam installation/upgrade again.
Please be aware that starting from September 2018 downloading updates will require an active contract for the corresponding product.
