Create snapshot operation exceeded

Post by regi »


I have a CentOS 5.2 VM running with direct attached storage (Max size) & getting this error when backing up :(

0 of 0 files processed
Total VM size: 256.00 GB
Processed size: 0.00 KB
Processing rate: 0 KB/s
Backup mode: SAN/NBD without changed block tracking
Start time: 12/06/2010 23:30:25
End time: 12/06/2010 23:30:34
Duration: 0:00:09

Creating snapshot
CreateSnapshot failed, vmRef "vm-397", timeout "1800000", snName "VEEAM BACKUP TEMPORARY SNAPSHOT", snDescription "Please do not delete this snapshot. It is being used by Veeam Backup.", memory "False", quiesce "True"
Cannot create a quiesced snapshot because the create snapshot operation exceeded the time limit for holding off I/O in the frozen virtual machine.

No problem with other VMs on the same host + same DAS

Any idea?
