backup VM's on single ESXi 5.5 host
i am trying to back-up 3 VM's on a single VMWare ESXi 5.5 host with Symantec Backup Exec 2012 SP4. i have created seperate jobs for the 3 virtual machines which backup the data to disk and then duplicate to tape. Every backup to disk job now instantly fails with the following error:
V-79-57344-38260 - Unable to create a snapshot of the virtual machine. The virtual machine may be too busy to quiesce to take the snapshot.
If i check the VMWare ESXi host when i start the back-up i see the following event: "Find entity by inventory path", which succeeds.
after this event the back-up job just fails. It does not even attempt to create a Virtual Machine Snapshot on the ESXi host.
how can i fix this?
