    vCenter 6.7 Backup Not Working

    jcreek01 Novice

      When I try to backup my vCenter 6.7.140000 system it fails.  Excerpt from backup.log:

       

      2018-11-28T16:09:19.205 [LotusBackup:PID-61411] INFO: stdout: VdcBackupDB: Server in state (5) in which it cannot perform backup. error(9125)

       

      2018-11-28T16:09:19.205 [LotusBackup:PID-61411] ERROR: BackupLotus: command "/usr/lib/vmware-vmdir/bin/vdcbackup /storage/db/vmware-vmdir/ /tmp/backup_lotus/" failed. rc: 165.

      When I run "/usr/lib/vmware-vmdir/bin/vdcbackup /storage/db/vmware-vmdir/ /tmp/backup_lotus/" manually it gives the following error:

       

      Warning: could not create partner listVdcBackupDB: Server in state (5) in which it cannot perform backup. error(9125)

       

      I have searched online and have not found anything helpful.
