VMware/AVVI Backup - How to undo Symantec's work!
I am currently using Backup Exec 2012 SP4 with NBD mode to backup some VMware VM's through vCenter.
I have a few instances where the job has crashed. Clicking Cancel does not appear to do anything so I have to reboot the entire Backup Exec server or restart all the Backup Exec services...
When the server comes up I then am able to stop the recovery job from running and all is fine.
I then have to go into VMware and remove the snapshot that Symantec has created on the VM.
I am looking at using SAN Transport mode and during testing have noticed that in addition to the creation of a snapshot by Symantec there is also a VMware task called Assign Disk Lease and Release Disk Lease.
My question is in the event of a backup job failing and me being unable to cancel it, how do I manually clear these down from vCenter in the event of a Backup Exec server reboot?
