Cause

This error may occur if the account used for the backup does not have enough permission to transport a snapshot.

This error may also occur if the vStorage APIs are not install on the vCenter / ESX server.

 

Solution

1. Verify that the account used for backup has the proper permissions in vCenter / ESX and on the Backup Exec server. 

2. Verify that the vStorage APIs are installed on the vCenter / ESX server. Use the following document to verify if the vStorage APIs are included with the existing ESX(I) / vSphere license:
000083698
If not please contact VMWare to purchase the appropriate license.

Refer to the related documents to set the required permissions.
