After upgrading the ESXi 7.0 host (Update 3), I was receiving the following error in Veeam Backup and Replication 11 (22.214.171.1241) when trying to edit an existing Backup Job:
Host with id ‘a-b-c-d-e’ was not found
The solution was to modify the Veeam database for a guest VM to point to the correct host ID.
- Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, navigate to the dbo.BObjects table
Databases -> VeeamBackup -> Tables -> dbo.BObjects
- Right click and Edit Top 200 Rows
- Locate the id from the error message in the host_id column
- Replace it with the correct host_id (with dashes). Note – you can get a list of all host IDs by using PowerShell in a Veeam B&R console session with the command Get-VBRServer. If needed you can also crosscheck the guest VM by matching the object_id column in the database with the Vmid of the VM on the host.
