Applies to

  • SnapCenter Plug-In for VMWare 4.1.1P2
  • Windows
  • vSphere
  • Active Directory Authentication


When modifying a policy or even during scheduled SCV backups (during quiesce unquiesce), at times you see some of the following errors in the Aegis log:

2019-03-28T11:17:32.0000533+01:00 DEBUG

As the credentials are the same every time a scheduled backup task starts and as the errors do not happen for every scheduled backup, it is unlikely a problem with insufficient privileges as the message suggests.
