Some of the Windows hosts could not longer run backups, and hung during the Job. The error from the SCC log was:

com.netapp.snapcreator.common.exception.SMSClientException: Error accessing API Quiesce with TARGET_URL https://<HOST_FQDN>:8145/SnapDrivePlugin/. Response return code is : 404

After restarting the Windows service, trying to restart the SCC Service caused a failure:
