Backup Windows 2003 VMs failed on VSC 4.2.1P1

I always see error VMware Task "CreateSnapshot_Task" for entity "xxx" failed with the following error: An error occurred while saving the snapshot: Failed to quiesce the virtual machine on Windows 2003 VM. My ESXi version  is 5.5 U1, VMware Tools is up to date.

Any trick to fix it?

Snapshot task on VMware faild, so it is better to check if you are able to create VM snapshot on vSphere Client.
