    Simultaneous guest operations on a single machine - The operation is not allowed in the current state.

    cmautn1 Novice

      Hello,

       

      I am having an issue where my vRO workflows fail if I attempt to perform two guest operations on a single machine at the same time.  An example of how I can recreate the issue is start a guest script workflow that loops and attempt to use the built-in get processes from guest workflow.  Below is the error.  I am using VMTools 10.1.15 on the guest and it is running Server 2016.

       

      I have been trying to narrow this down for some time and finally narrowed it down to two ops running at once.  Is this a limitation?  I have been researching and I have not seen anyone with this specific case.  I have not discovered anything useful in the Logs (Windows, VMware, VMTools).

       

       

      Thanks!

      Cody
