quiescence backup despite I have'nt chosen

Post by aviv » Jul 17, 2012 1:48 pm

hello

after a daily job on Veam & Replication i get this error:

"Creating snapshot Error:
An error occurred while quiescing the virtual machine. See the virtual machine's event log for details."

despite I have'nt chosen this option in the advanced settings on this job.

Any hints in the VM log? This error might be talking about VM stun required to create snapshot (the error comes to us from VMware, not a Veeam error).

Why always when the Job Failed, we cant make quiescing snapshot on the virtual machine?
That said -because "the quiescing on virtual machine is alredy running..."

Looks like the previous process is still holding the VM and this prevents you from taking a snapshot with quiescence enabled.

VM debug logs investigation will definitely be able to shed some light on this.
