Backup seems to lock up?

Running a 'hot' backup (from command line - see previous post re. GUI issues)

I can see the snapshot being initiated. The job logs the following to the console:

grep: /vmfs/volumes/core/_my_vm_name_/c7-3_0-000001-sesparse.vmdk: Device or resource busy

and then seems to hang indefinitely.

*Frankly, I'm worried*. Flaky gui, and now flaky jobs, in a really vanilla environment. Not what I expect at all for paid software, especially mission critical software....

Re: Backup seems to lock up?

There are some requirements in regards to the GUI that are mentioned in the first page of the manual.
There are also requirements in regards to the state of the VMs. You need to make sure everything is O.K. before actually trying to perform a backup. Contact support to get you going.
