    I’ve been fighting with Veeam support on this for 2 weeks where they keep insisting it’s an authentication error and that I can’t type the password. Thanks for posting this article confirming my suspicions.

    Thanks all – fixed the issue for us and we recently updated to 3.2.2 MU3.
    Although it was like cached across 2 Veeam servers, reboot seemed to have fixed it for me post hostfix.
