does acronis use agents installed on the guest OS?
are they up to date?

what version of acronis are you using?
is this version compatible with the vsphere version in use?
-> please check with acronis

on the guest OS, open a command prompt.

type:

vssadmin list providers

-> please provide the output

after that type

vssadmin list writers


-> please provide the output
