   Detailed Error Message : The writer experienced a non-transient error.  If the backup process is retried, the error is likely to reoccur.


Workaround is to disable Backup (volume checkpoint) in Integration Services for VM Settings.

I've faced with the issue on FreeBSD 11.2.

The VM hangs while Microsoft SC DPM has been occupied by creating a backup for another VM and has tried backup FreeBSD VM.

Past backups of FreeBSD VM (every week, during year more) has been created successfully.
