After changing capitalization on the name of a VM in vCenter backups of the VM will fail.

Problem

After changing capitalization on the name of a VM in vCenter backups of the VM will fail.

Solution

This is by design, if you select the folder the Virtual Machine is in, the changing of the name will not effect the backup job But if you select a server and the server name changes the job will fail.

 

Workaround:

Either deselect and reselect the Virtual Machine in the selection list
or
rename the Virtual Machine back to the original case settings.
