Last update: 31-05-2021


You are backing up a VMware vCenter environment with Acronis Cyber Backup.

You have upgraded from Acronis Cyber Backup 11.7 to Acronis Cyber Backup 12.5.

After upgrade, you cannot open the web console (the page stays blank) and Acronis Management Server Service does not start.

In logs, you see this error:

Issue with upgrading the registry key holding the vCenter credentials.


This issue has been fixed in Update 4 (Build 14330), please update to the latest build.

To fix the issue without updatin, you can use the following workaround :

  1. On the machine with Acronis Management Server installed, open Windows Registry: Start -> in search, type regedit.exe and press Enter.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Acronis\AMS\Configuration\Virtual\EsxRegistry\VCenters.
  3. Export and then delete the VCenters key.
  4. Start Acronis Management Server service: Start -> in search, type services.msc and press Enter -> locate Acronis Management Server service and click Start service.
  5. Re-register the Agent for VMware (for guidelines, see this article).

More information

You can also receive a similar error when trying to add a machine to Management Server.

In this case, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Acronis\MMS\Configuration\Virtual\EsxRegistry\Servers and delete all servers under this key, then restart Acronis Managed Machine Service.
