When processing a backup, replication, or recovery job the following message is displayed:
This error occurs if you are using VVol or vSAN datastores.
The reason is a known issue in VDDK library, which is used for managing and accessing VMware virtual disks. The issue must be fixed in one of the nearest releases.
The temporary workarounds are:
- explicitly specify another mode, such as NBDSSL or HotAdd
- move the virtual disk to a VMFS datastore.
