VMware Policy backup issues (18.104.22.168)
Hi Guys how are you doing?
My environment is as follows:
Master & Media server (same server): Windows 2003 64 bit
VMware environment is:
Entire environment is version ESXi 5
1 Virtual Center Server
4 ESX servers
i have a few issues so i'll state them all:
1) when back up of a VMware client starts.
the job splits into 2:
Snapshot and Backup.
The backup child job finishes, but the Snapshot job stays active for hours(!) after the backup has finished. (this does not happen on all machines)
2) when "Browsing for Virtual Machines" in the VMware policy and choosing "Browse and select Virtual Machine"
i need to wait for about 5-8 minutes while it's "Loading Virtual Machien list"
and sometimes it gives me the following errors:
failed to get vm server info list request has timed out(195)
but sometimes it loads the entire VM environment tree, after a few minutes (5-8 minutes) it show me the entire tree of the VM environment
from VC Server all the way to the machine level.
but this is very inconsistant. takes long time and sometimes fail as mentioned above.
3) also, sometime i get failed jobs for VM machines with error status 156.
and it will not back itself up until i go into the VMware policy and "browse for virtual machines"
once it finishes browsing i'll close it and restart the job and it will work.
anyone experienced this before?
