BackupDisk Failed - Virtual Appliance

Post by TimFerguson »

A number of VM's are failing to be backed up using the Virtual Appliance method.

It happens across various volumes. I can't pin down anything that would be causing this. All VMFS volumes are available to all ESX hosts ( confirmed)


Code: Select all
