Hi @Abela You can run scripts post backup job. This should help: Script Settings - User Guide for VMware vSphere (veeam.com) Thank you for your response, @dips.... The documentation states that the script can only be run on the backup server, yet I have a shell script that is meant to run on a Linux OS system. which i am taking backup of it. is there any way to do this?
@Abela -- in your backup jobs there is Pre & Post script sections under the Advanced section of the Storage tab. Thanks @Chris.Childerhose for the reply. I tried in this way but the scripts were executed locally on the backup server. However I intended to execute the script inside the guest OS of the VM being backed up.

@MicoolPaul yes of course after reaching 80% it will freeze for the some time and it will fail. I will see what I can do on your suggestion regarding disabling the inspection on the firewall. In the meantime I was capturing network packets using Wireshark and I have noticed there is a TCP-KEEP-ALIVE failure. Does it imply something????
@MicoolPaul Our firewalls are local firewalls(LAN). And all backup Infra. components are on site and also they are installed on separate windows VMs. The job has been set to choose proxy automatically. But during diagnosing the problem I tried by choosing specific proxy server which is nearby to the datastore in addition I have tried to change the repository to another machine with different VLAN but the result was the same still it failing when it reaches around 80%. All the VMs have windows OS.
