Cannot delete temporary snapshot


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

i have a problem with the backup of vm´s between an esxi server and Nakivo.

The following notification appears:

Cannot delete temporary snapshot of the "X" VM
The "Temporary snapshot aa1fb513-816a-4675-8e07-6857c4f88905" snapshot created for backup purposes has taken too long to delete. Make sure it was removed or delete the snapshot manually.
We use a ESXi 6 server. Nakivo is backing up four ubuntu vm´s.  Three of the vm´s has 16 GB, one 20 GB. The vm with the problem has 16 GB.
The three other vm´s need 35 seconds to a minute to be backuped, the vm with the problem needs 39 minutes.
All vm´s runs on a VMFS5 Filesystem.
Maybe someone has an idea why three VM's are running normally and why one takes so long?
