We have VMware Vsphere Client 5.5.0 and the space on Exchange only 27Gb. All I want is to the expand the D drive.
When I right click the VM and edit settings and click Hard disk 1 , Disk provisioning is completely greyed.
I came across an article which said , if it is greyed , that means the snapshot is in progress. I went to the VEEAM back up server and noticed that no Exchange backup is running.
I right clicked the VM- snapshot-snapshot manager and noticed that 2 VEEAM BACKUP TEMPORARY SNAPSHOT listed there.
I selected the bottom snapshot and clicked delete and it was saying snapshot removal in progress. After some time it throws and error
"remove snapshot request time out"
Please suggest , what to do at this stage and is there a safe way of removing these snapshot. Please see the attached the snapshot manager.
