Error removing snapshot

Post by alvarobc33 » Dec 14, 2015 11:20 am

Hi, i have veeam backup 6.
In my replication task for 5VMs i have this problem: when the 4th VM is finish puts an error "removing snapshot" but the replication job for the 5VMs is correct.
If i see browsing the datastore, i have in this VM a lot of .VMDK files: one for each day with the error
If i edit the VM setting, i see that the two hard disk files are the latest VMDK files in the datastore: user-000021.vmdk and user_1-000021.vmdk, but i have others 40 vmdk files in this folder.

How can fix this error in veeam backup: "removing snapshot" and how can i fix the VMDKs problem files in VSphere?

Best regards.

Please take a look a this existing topic for more info on the snapshot removal process > System freeze every time during copy at 99%.

On a side note, can you please tell us the reason why you're not running the latest version of Veeam B&R?
