Veeam Replication jobs fail with some sort of timeout
Posted on 2013-01-25
I have a number of Veeam Replication jobs that replicate server VMs offsite. Some network changes were recently made (adding a NAT setup between the office LAN and the remote site) and that caused all manner of problems i.e. all my replication jobs failed. The changes were undone but out of my 5 jobs 2 of them still refuse to complete and they give the same error I was seeing prior to backing out of the NAT changes.
The job fails with the error "Error: Client error: ChannelError: TimedOut" and Veeam Support seem intent on blaming our WAN link. However, as I said 3 of my jobs complete OK. I've also copied a VM from local to remote hosts and VMware didn't fall over and complain about a WAN problem.
Data size doesn't seem to be a common factor, neither does OS (one server is Win2003 the other Win2008), antivirus (one server has it the other doesn't) or anything else that I can see.
I am at a loss as to why these 2 jobs (which I've tried deleting and recreating from scratch as well) get maybe up to 40-50% done and then just give up.
Can anyone help?
