How to exclude RDM Disk ??

Post by damorin »

Hi,
I am getting the following error:
CreateSanpshot failed, vmRef "vm-482 xxxxxxxxx Virtual Machine is configured to use a device that prevents the snapshot operation: Device "is a SCSI controller engaged in bus-sharing"
Because I am using pRDM disk for Windows cluster VM, i tried to exclude those disks (RDM disks 0:1,0:2) from the backup but i am still getting the same error message.
My goal is just to backup the OS disk (0:0) that is a regular Virtual Disk

I really aprecciate your help

Hello David, disk exclusion will not help here because the real issue is that you cannot snapshot Windows cluster VM, it is not supported by VMware.
