In-Progress snapshot from last month...

Hi,

Cant seem to find any documentation on this so i thought id post the question here.

Only just noticed, one of the scheduled snapshots has been In-Progress for the last month. I've tried to delete it but without success. What's the safest way to stop and delete this. i know the root cause of the issue, which i have fixed but need to safely remove/delete this.

running SRM version 6.5.1

there are several other volumes being snapshot'd every couple of hours.

Is it a simple case of ensuring no other snapshot is in-progress, restarting the SRM service on the SRM Server? and if that fails, any other suggestions?

thank you

Hi Morzon,

Do you see an active task running on vCenter task and events. Stating snapshot is in progress ?

Hey rshenoy, thank you for looking at this, I think this is more of a problem with the Storage then it is SRM. I've logged it with the storage support team as we recently did some firmware update....

Nothing running in SRM to indicate a fault with it.

Hi you can log thru SSH to the ESxi host i which the VM is residing.

then run the below command :

#vim-cmd vimsvc\task_list

this will show all the process running on the host,

please locate the snapshot process in this list

once you have the copy from "ha ...processid"

then run.

#vim-cmd vimsvc\task_info "ha ...processid"

here you will see "progress" - this will show if the process is running or not

if you do not see any process the snapshot is gone zombie - so you can kill it with the below command.

#vim-cmd vimsvc\task_cancel "ha ...processid"

later run

/etc/init.d/hostd restart

/etc/init.d/vpxa restart
