VEEAM issues after installing KB4015553

Following error can occure:

“An operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full”

Please remove KB4015553 from the Windows Updates. (reboot needed)

Cannot mount vPower NFS VEEAM

Today I encountered the issue that I could not run a SureBackup from an ESX server. Although the ESX server (vmkernel) could ping the Veeam Backup server and coudl connect tot the NFS service (Port 111 and 6161).

I finally saw that there was also a Service NFS running. Disabling this service did not help.

At last i just removed the “Service fro NFS” from the Windows 2012 R2 Storage server.

A reboot is needed AND…. the Surebackup run.

So. If you have a Windows Storage server and you install Veeam Backup and Replication on it. Remove the Service for NFS from it to make vPower NFS work.

To create a sample wrapper script,  you can create a text file and name it vcb.bat.
echo off
if "%1" == "freeze" goto doFreeze
goto doThaw
call c:\windows\pre-freeze-script.bat
goto EOF

For Linux VMs, the scripts should be named



Both must have 0755 permissions so that they are executable, and should be owned by root.

Make sure that ““Enable VMware Tools quiescence” is enabled, cauusing the scripts to be call to.

80080005 Server execution failed

In one instance we encountered following error on a VEEAM backup environment, where all backup’s failed in the same session. also manually restarting the jobs gave this error:

Unable to subscribe to guest processing components: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {D2E3C73F-841A-46B0-A93F-956CCABD3B11} failed due to the following error: 80080005 Server execution failed (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80080005 (CO_E_SERVER_EXEC_FAILURE))

After investigation it seemed that intl.dll was missing in the …\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\VSS folder.

Replacing it fixed the problem.
