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.
