Enable Application Aware on Veeam Backup for AWS

 Before enabling application-aware processing backup on EC2 instance, follow below steps. 

Here are a few guidelines and steps for ensuring the VSS-enabled snapshots complete successfully.

  1. The Windows instance must have the SSM agent installed and running. For system requirements and installation instructions for the SSM agent, visit the AWS Systems Manager documentation, ... l-win.html
  2. The Windows instance must have an IAM instance profile attached that:
    * Allows Systems Manager to interact with the instance
    * Allows Systems Manager to create VSS-enabled snapshots
    For information on instance profiles and IAM policies required to create VSS-enabled snapshots, visit the AWS EC2 User Guide for Windows Instances, ... shots.html.
  3. Ensure the IAM instance profile has the "AmazonSSMManagedInstanceCore" role attached.
  4. Ensure the IAM instance profile has an IAM policy attached that allows VSS-enabled snapshots. See the following page for the JSON IAM policy for VSS-enabled snapshots, ... d-vss-role
  5. The Windows instance must have the AWS VSS Components package (AwsVssComponents) installed. Installation instructions for the AWS VSS Components are in the AWS EC2 User Guide for Windows Instances, ... ss-package

Here are the steps I followed to fix the issue on one Windows 2012r2 EC2 (affected OS version):

1. Uninstalled SSM Agent on EC2 (cleaned %ProgramData% caching);

2. Installed AWS Tools and SDK (msi setup containing Powershell extensions enabler);

3. Installed SSM agent;

4. Distributed AwsVssComponents package (here i think was now the point);

5. Run Command AWSEC2-CreateVssSnapshot and worked
