We are having some issues when trying to create snapshots with application quiescing enabled. We get the following error from vmware.log in the datastore:
The error message was: 'VssSyncStart' operation failed: IDispatch error #8454 (0x80042306)
I have installed the latest version of VM Tools (10.1) on the VM, and even copied to another separate host - still doesn't work
I have also disabled application quescing, as mentioned in this article Disabling VSS quiesced application based snapshots in virtual machine (2146204) | VMware KB. Although this does help with the snapshot completing, we don't get application consistency.
The VM is hosted on vSphere 6.0 U2 (with all most-recent critical patches installed), and the guest OS is Win Server 2012 (also has SQL Server 2012 installed).
Has anyone come across this before?
