VSS backup without BMR take a long time to complete


I'm facing this issue on Windows 2012 R2 x64 machine. This is a Domain controller and I'm trying to take two set of backups.

1. FS and VSS with BMR

2. VSS without BMR

Both these sets are scheduled at different time. When I run the backup of this server (VSS without BMR first) the job just keep on running without any progress bytes displayed on admin console.

I googled and found out that Windows 2012 R2 needs a HF to be installed. I installed that hotfix by replacing avtar with the new avtar and then I restarted backup agent.

However it has still not fixed the issue. Any clue on what could be the cause of this?
