Guys, I am having an issue with another task is already in process, i am not able to stop, reset, sutdown and move the systems.
there are many KB articles on this issues but nothing is working out any idea??
root@geevm01:~] vim-cmd vmsvc/power.shutdown 42
faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,
faultMessage = <unset>,
task = 'vim.Task:haTask-42-vim.VirtualMachine.createScreenshot-205968370'
msg = "Received SOAP response fault from [<cs p:03ce4848, TCP:localhost:80>]: shutdownGuest
Another task is already in progress."
i have gone through all these
Collecting information about tasks in VMware ESXi_ESX (1013003).
Powering on a virtual machine from the command line when the host cannot be managed using vSphere Client (1038043)
Unable to power off the virtual machine in an ESXi host (1014165)
Is this error coming on vCenter , then stop all services and start gain check .
in case it is from esxi , you may check the running all process and find the process related the VM and kill that .
Just had the same issue on 6.7 U2
Issue was a failed instance of a vmware tool upgrade. Unmounting vmware tools installer resolved my issue.
