Problem creating snapshot

I have a VMware ESXi 5.5.0 (Build 1623387) with a Windows 2012 R2 guest.
I'm using Veeam Backup & Replication to make backups of this server.
Now I'm unable to do a backup, because vmware is unable to make a snapshot of the guest.
As far as I see, Veeam is trying to create a snapshot with Quiesce guest = on, and memory = off.

When VMware is trying to make such a snapshot, I get this error in Windows 2012 event viewer:
The guest OS has reported an error during quiescing.
The error code was: 5 The error message was:
'VssSyncStart' operation failed: IDispatch error #8454 (0x80042306)

If you try to Take a Snapshot - Manually of the VM, do you get the same error message?

e.g. Take a Snapshot with Quiesce option Ticked.
