    Release backup software's lock on VMs

    Marco_2_G Novice

      Hello everybody

       

      We are having the issue that our backup software sometimes forgets to unlock VMs after it is done with its thing.

       

      The software itself only allows the unlocking by browsing the backup selection and selecting each and every VM individually and hitting "unlock".

       

      This not only hampers new backup attempt sometimes, it also blocks DRS vMotions and manual ones. While troubleshooting this on PS, I noticed that PS was aware that the VM was actually locked by the backup plugin.

       

      So my hope is to find all VMs with such a lock and remove the lock via PS.

       

      Does anybody have experience with this issue or can anyone be of assistance in finding a way to do this?

       

      Thanks in advance for your time

       

      Regards,

       

      Marco
