Restarting a machine during snapshot removal

Hello,

Currently, the snapshot is being deleted (60%), so the question is can I restart the VM machine?  The process started by a third party software (Veeam) and it failed (

4/1/2015 12:34:23 PM :: Unable to release guest. Error: VSSControl: Failed to freeze guest, wait timeout).  Veeam then issued to have the snapshot remove.

Environment:

2008r2  (Exchange 2010 passive machine in a DAG) machine on ESXI 5.5

Thanks,

TT

when you are removing (consolidating) a snapshot you normally can restart the vm.

as I understand for a snapshot delete the VSS isn't used
