Veeam Backup and Fast SCP Error

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

You get an error after attempting to backup a vm, which is similar to the following…

opening `/vmfs/volumes/48ef3738-77af8bc0-d6aa-0022190bdb5f/vm_name/vm_name.vmdk’: Permission denied

The issue is that the “Service Console Agent Mode” is being used, and there is a permission problem preventing a proper backup.

The work-around is as follows… Uncheck “Use Service Console Connection” check box on the page where you specified credentials, this will make Veeam fall back to agentless mode and use SOAP Credentials.
