I am trying to backup the VCSA 6.5. but getting failed multiple times.
Giving error of BackupManager encountered an exception. Please check logs.
I have also checked logs but didn't understand the exact problem.
If anyone is facing same then help.
I am using an HTTPS Method for backup. I have set the location in system drive.
I have configured the IIS Server as provided in the below link:
but after the 95% i am getting this error.
When i checked there are some of the files gets stored.
I have same problem with VCSA backup to IIS/WebDAV (2012R2).
I tried to investigate the issue and I have found the root cause: HTTP RETURN CORE 413 from IIS. This result I can see in backup.log (on VCSA) and in web-server log on IIS.
Yes, I have read the article which is mentioned above (about configure WebDAV on IIS), but it is not my solution...
Thank You for replay, but it does not help me.
I tried to increase the value of uploadReadAheadSize parameter up to 2G (in bytes, off course), then restart IIS, but issue does not come out.
Resolved the issue. I reffered the article in;
SSH to the vcenter appliance and viewed the path /var/log/vmware/applmgmt/backup.log. Found below error in the log.

So I changed the folder permission of the backup location. Issue resolved.
