    large vmdk disk failing snapshot

    Tony Wong Adventurer

      I have a 750 vmdk disk that is failing nightly on snapshots. vmtools are up to date on it, there is no issues with the c drive vmdk about 50gb. but the d drive keeps failing

       

      any idea?

          Is this snap vmware synchronized, MS VSS synchronized or neither? If vmware synchronized try the following test...

           

          1. take a snap in vmware (not fro the Nimble) uncheck both boxes (snap memory and quiesce file system, bot unchecked). Is it succesful?

          2. Do the same but quiesce the filesystem. Is it succesful?

           

          If no to 1 and 2, call vmware.
