Just setup protection (volume collection snapshots) on my VMWare datastore and they seem to be working well but i keep getting an error msg that says that it cant delete the snapshots.


"Failed to delete vCenter snapshot associated with volume collection test schedule sched1 since the vCenter virtual machine snapshot tasks have not yet completed."


I sent this in to support and they are saying I shouldnt have any more than 10 VMs on a datastore to avoid this. I only have 28 right now and none have massive amounts of data.


He said he can SSH in and change the timeout for that to help prevent this issue.


Is it just me or does 10 vms per datastore seem really low?
