When you run a backup job manually by using vSphere Data Protection, the progress of the job might reach 92% and stall. It appears as though the job has stopped running.


  1. Use SSH to log in to vSphere Data Protection appliance.
  2. Run mccli activity show to view a list of backup jobs and their status.
  3. In the Client column, search for the ID of the backup job, and the corresponding virtual machines.
  4. In the Status column, verify that the job is still running.
