Hi

I am trying to clone a 2008 R2 VM on ESX 5.1 and am getting the following error:

vsssyncstart operation failed:idispatch error #8455

I found one article online stating the cause is having Backup Exec installed on the server.  I can clone other servers that have BE on them with no problems.  The posts I'm seeing don't seem to have a direct fix.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

Tony

How are you trying to Clone the virtual machine?

Is VMware Tools installed?

Right click on the VM in Virtual Center and select clone.  VMware tools ver 9.0.10 is installed.

If you create (Take a snapshot) snapshot, with the Quicse option ticked, do you get the same issue?

I tried to clone a different VM server in the same Virtual Center data center with the same error message (diff host also).

I tried a third and that one worked fine.  Is there some global settings in a Virtual Center data center (cluster) or individual ESX host servers that could cause this?

I would have expected the Snapshot also to fail....
