Veeam Error: Change Tracking Timestamp

less than 1 minute read


Veeam will be failing on the backups with the following log event: Failed to create change tracking time stamp for virtual disk file..

To Resolve:

  1. After Googling the error, I found the official answer here. The page describes the issue but only offers one solution if it continues to happen:

  2. Import the Veeam Module in Powershell and run Reset-HvVmChangeTracking on the Virtual Machine that is generating the error. This resets the change block tracking for that VM. Note that this also happens when you upgrade to a new version of Veeam as well.
