VM stuck on remove snapshot...

Stuck on remove snapshot @ 99%.  Caused by acronis replication.  The default replica snapshot under snapshot maanger has 2x listed and the delete and delete all options are greyed out....

Ideas how to clear it without downing the VM or host?

I have restarted the appliances...

372gb previsioned.
local storage.
restarted the 2x acronis appliances 30 mins ago as not displaying a running task.

I assume its a vmware task now?
shutdown the appliance.

check the appliance does not have the virtual disks attached, and restart services as above.

Again?

I assume you mean local storage connected via the appliance?  If so, we don't have it configured like that.  The appliance just looks at the local HDD's.

The replica vm files have not been modified since 10am today.

i assume the VM's will need to be powered off first?
no, restarting management agents does not affect the host.
