VM frozen when EXEC backup runs
Posted on 2008-10-07
We are using VMware server 2.0 running on Windows server 2003 enterprise. We run Symantec backup exec12 to backup the vm folder. The vms become unaccessable every time the backup runs.
Get error message from the vm event "Operation on file "*******flat.vmdk" failed. if the file resides on a remote file system, please make sure your network connection and the server where this disk resides are functuioning properly. ......choose retry to attempt the operation again.....etc. The vm will back to normal if I click on "retry" button on the vm console.
I have tried running a script (vmrun) to restart vm after the backup job finishes, but that does not seem to solve the problem. Is there any way to solve the problem without using the backup agant? Is there a vm command I can use?
