Tring to do a backup I get “A general system error occurred”. Opening the VM web client and doing a snap shot I get the same error so it is not a Veeam issue but shows up in Veeam. When I look at the disk size of the VM it shows 0 gig. The VM is up and running and has a 60 gig c drive.
VMware 6 all patched, Veeam 8 patched. - yes will do 9 soon.
Yesterday I deleted an old data store that had iso's on it. One vm had a iso mounted to the CDrom from this deleted datastore. Every time I snapshoted that VM it went to General Error. Disk size then showed 0 gig. If I migrate the VM to another data store it showed the disk at 60gig after. If I tried to snapshot then error back to zero. I then migrated back to first data store, set CD to client, now all works.
Thought it might help someone else so I posted this.
