Replication Stuck on 'remove snapshot'

Post by egroeg » Jan 18, 2011 6:31 pm

Hi, Ive setup Replication but in the VMWare task list, the task list never ends on the "remove snapshot" task?

Running VMWare Essentials Plus on ESX 4.1 latest release and Veeam B&R v5 ?

Any ideas?

How long have you been waiting? This can take quite awhile if the VM sees a lot of disk I/O. The reason being ESX has to roll all of the deltas back into the vmdk before it can purge the snapshot.

George,

Please refer to this post: Re: Many VM's dropping packets losing pingstate during rep/b for more detailed explanation.
