Hi @Adarsh.op,

Which feature/maintenance release are you running? A few of these sorts of issues were fixed last year and I’m wondering if you could be missing some updates.

Got it. I would definitely try apply the latest maintenance release (11.28.56) to the VSA’s involved in the backup and recovery to 8.2 and see if it helps. The error was addressed in a couple of updates - I don't know if it would apply to your situation specifically but its a good place to start. If it does not, I would open a support case to check further, as they will need to review the logs for this one.!/130/657?fl=%7B%22qfType%22:1,%22qfVal%22:%2211.28%22%7D
