A few backups failed last week. Usually when this happen the reason is an existing snapshot that needs to be deleted, but not this time. I wonder if the reason might be lack of storage on the ESXi boxes? This server for which I attached vBackup log still had 1.2 TB free space when the scheduled task was last attempted.
