My Exchange backups are now failing after updating vmware tools on the Exchange Server. The Acronis task was an application aware job, and ever since I updated the Vmware tools on the guest OS, it started failing.

The VMware tools version is 9.0.167, build-3055609 (current version)
Guest OS: Windows Server 2012 R2
Exchange Server 2013

Acronis backup for VMware is running the latest version and build number. Build 9.2.10571

In the backup task, When I go to Step 4, and click 'Refresh' under actions, it fails with the below error.

Hi Tom,

According to our records we've got report on this problem only once so far and it was related to WMI calls executed inside the protected VM which didn't return proper information about SQL server. Probably VMware Tools installation has somehow affected the WMI and thus causes the issue.

First of all I'd tried updating the VMware Tools to version 10, since VMware now releases VMware Tools independently from ESXi releases: see

If that doesn't help then you should contact our support team for further assistance. Remember to capture AcronisInfo outputs from inside the problematic VM before submitting the request - see (See "Use AcronisInfo tool to collect system report on a Windows machine" section)

Thank you.
