For some reason, I'm getting the following error when trying to Replicate one of my VM's:

" 8/16/2016 10:50:18 PM :: Failed to create processing task for VM server Error: Cannot find datastore for disk Hard disk 1"

However, all my other VM's are replicating fine.

Any suggestions?

Veeam 7 or 8?
Here is a hotfix for 7 you should investigate,  if that is your version:
https://forums.veeam.com/veeam-backup-replication-f2/7-0-issues-patches-and-hot-fixes-t18243.html
And patch 3 for 7:

Or 8.1

Are the VMs that are found on Hard disk 1?
Perhaps upgrading to 8.1??

Hi,
does this VM have existing snapshots ?
Does its first VMDK still exists on the datastore, did you browse the datastore in order to check that ?

If everything is fine with the VM, maybe you should simply refresh the vsphere infrastructure part in Veeam, maybe there was a modification on the datastore's name and Veeam did not refres this change. It could happen.
