Hi @ETO ,

What version are you using?

Can you check vsbkp.log on the VSA?

Best Regards,

Hello @ETO 

From the errors in the logs, while creating the worker pod it seems to be giving a time out error and this could be because of an issue while pulling the image from the repository.

Ref Doc -

We would recommend to upgrade VSA to latest MR as it contains fix for similar issue.
