Backup job stuck at removing snapshot 99% for 7hrs

Veeam Logoby ashman70 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 12:23 am

I have a backup job running under Veeam 9.0.0.1715 that has been stuck at 99% removing the snapshot for 7hrs now. There was a pending replication job for the same VM that I stopped. Not sure what to do, leave it awhile longer or kill the job? I checked and there are no other snapshots visible for the VM.
What should I do?

Patience won out in the end, it eventually removed the snapshot and all is well.

For what it is worth, VMware often improves the time of clearing or consolidating snapshots in each release. I hope that this issue never hits you again, but if it does, I hope you are on some newer version of VMware that minimizes the time.
