1st.  Check to make sure there aren't any backup jobs running in this time window.

2nd. Try expanding the time window in which the online defrag runs.

Backup of the Exchange server?  If so change the time.  Backing up the Exchange Server during a online defrag will kill the defrag.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
