Occasionally I’ll start getting VMs that stop getting backed up using VDP 5.5. They won’t even attempt a backup the next day either. I’ll kick off an immediate backup which immediately fails, with the error:
An unexpected error occurred with the following error code: 10058. More information may be available in the client logs which can be downloaded from the configuration application.
I’ve tried a few different fixes for the problem, but oddly enough, the best fix I’ve found for the problem is IT Rule #1: “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” I completely shut down the VM, not just a restart. Then I’ll turn it back on again. After that, kicking off the backup job has been successful.
