12.1.2 - Backup Copies all insta-fail and auto-disable


Userlevel 1

After upgrading to 12.1.2 this morning, all of our backup copy jobs went into a failed state with the error

“5/22/2024 8:08:10 AM :: Error: One or more Veeam components on host This server are not up to date. You must upgrade them first. The job has been automatically disabled due to too many failures. Please fix all issues preventing the job from running before re-enabling it.”

The “on host This server” is the exact wording in all cases.  They were indeed all disabled.  Re-enabling manually seems like it’s working, but none of the copy jobs actually have any work to do until later in the week, so I can’t say for sure.

 Anyone else seeing this?

Not seeing this no but did you ensure all servers are updated for components?  Check the Backup Infrastructure tab to ensure nothing shows outdated.

If anything shows outdated you need to update it.  Something is not current based on the message.

Hi @JCWH - haven’t upgraded yet so not sure. Follow the manual upgrade process to see if your Veeam Components need updated, which by the error you’re getting sound like they might.

Thanks, yeah - nothing shows outdated.  Had the auto-upgrade remote stuff option checked during the upgrade process, for whatever that’s worth.  Our infra is only the one VBR server anyway, which has all the repos and is the only backup proxy.

Your best bet, if you haven’t already, would be to work with Veeam Support.

I would suggest a support ticket at this point if nothing shows outdated.  Did you try to recreate the copy job using the same source?  Maybe a new job might fix it?

Two things come to mind on my side:
 

  1. Is it DNS? LOL, seems crazy but maybe worth checking as components interact by name.  (Thinking like any name changes, host entries, etc.)
  2. Is there any mixed IPv4 and IPv6 going on? If mixed, maybe consolidate.

 

If not, as @coolsport00 recommends → Open a ticket. 

Hi, did you manage to solve this error? as I have the same behavior?

Thanks,
