Any of the following errors are being thrown in vCenter when attempting to remove a VM snapshot created by Veeam Backup Server:
Remove snapshot servername.domain.com An error occurred while communicating with the remote host.

Try restarting the VMware Connector services on the relevant ESX host:
service mgmt-vmware restart
This will show the ESX host as temporarily disconnected from vCenter, don’t panic, its normal.
Once the host returns, manually delete the snapshot via vCenter
