Activity 'Registering Backup and Applying Retention' failed with error: Value cannot be null.

At some servers I get the message: "Activity 'Registering Backup and Applying Retention' failed with error: Value cannot be null." when I try to backup them with SnapCenter.

At other servers it works fine. I don't get this message. The servers use the same Resourcegroup and Policy.

 

Does someone know ho to fix this?

Have a look at these pointers, and also look for any error messages on the storage side, that should give some clue.

Also, have a look here:
Backup operation fails if Snapshot copies on the secondary storage reaches maximum limit:

Another thread has this 'null' error mentioned': (Take a look)

Something to do with Policy/retention/snapshot.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

Thanks for the replies guys!

@Ontapforrum : I already saw those posts.

Error "Activity 'Registering Backup and Applying Retention' failed. Snapshot has not expired or is locked."

I think that de retention is ok. At other servers wich use the same Resourcegroup/Policy (and retention) it works fine.

I think that's also ok. At other servers wich use the same Resourcegroup/Policy (and retention) it works fine. 

 

@mrahul : That's strange because I already use version 4.3.1
