When I make a snapshot on vSphere level it takes about 2 minutes and it is ready. When I run a backup job veeam initiates backup procedure and tries to make a snapshot of that VM. After 30 min snapshot times out (it stays on 100% status in vSphere console for most of that time) and backup job fail. After that snapshot is in place and I have to remove it manually.
I thought it is related to VSS (vvols creates another snapshot for that AFAIK) but when I disabled it in backup nothing got better.
I will open a case after some more troubleshooting but maybe someone has an idea why it behaves.

Now, October 2017, I recently expanded a vVol VM from 6TB to 8TB and now I have the same problem snapshots timeout and have to be manually removed. Backups fail. and the VM goes offline for about 30 minutes every time a veeam backup job runs. I am already on ESXi 6.0 P5 so I think that the issue was not patched by VMware. I have opened a VMware ticket again.
