Product & Version: Netvault 8.5.*
OS Version: VMware ESX all versions
Module & Version: VMware 2.0
Upgrade of the Netvault Software causes VMWare backups to fail.
Binary logs show the following messages;

The cause of the failure, (Exit code 1), and the failure to mount the VM, appears to be from the upgrade of the Netvault Software\bin directory.
This is a known issue and is mentioned within the release notes of the VMWare Plugin version 2.0.
Cannot Browse Mounted Windows Virtual Machines after NVBU Upgrade - If the NVBU software is upgraded after installing the VMware Plugin, it is necessary to reinstall the VMware Plugin on the NVBU Client. If this is not done, it will not be possible to open the Drives node of a mounted virtual machine for any new file-level backups.
