I run Acronis True Image Cloud. Cloud backups used to work but now always fail with very nondescript error: 'Request to server failed with status: "Error", and description "Error" '

The offending backup schemes cannot be deleted on my machine.


According to the "Devices overview" at https://bc-eu4-baas.acronis.commy computer (Desktop-N7N6BTS) is offline and was last seen Mar 05 2016. 

I checked out the recommended fixes in (57601: Acronis Backup Cloud/Acronis Backup Service: Machine Is Offline in Backup Management Console)

These are my results:

1. The Managed Machine Service is indeed running

2. The Connection Verification Tool yields the following output:

---begin output -----

msp_port_checker_en-US_x86.exe -p=XXXXXX
Check for 443 Ok Ok
Check for 7788 Ok Ok
Check for 44445 Ok Ok
Check for 8443 Ok Ok

-------- end output --------

This looks pretty much Ok to me.

3. Compare registry keys "MMSCurrentMachineID" and "InstanceID" with cloud values.

I only find the "MMSCurrentMachineID"-key. There is no "InstanceID"-key

The value for the "MMSCurrentMachineID"-key does match the GUID in the URL.

4. Use SQL to check the uplink configuration

The SQL query output is as follows:

sqlite> select * from BusinessObjects where value='Msp::Agent::Dto::Configuration';
Error: no such table: BusinessObjects

Sooo... no useful results :(

Thx in advance for new hints !

Hello Richard,

Please contact our support team, so that we can start investigation. For all Cloud related issues it's always better to raise a support ticket.
