I have a customer with VSC 2.0 and SMVI, inluding SnapMirror and SnapVault (via sv-smvi Script).
some jobs are running fine, other are running for hours!
we're starting them at about 23:00 and two of them finish at 6 to 7 am the next morning.
the log contains the following sentence every minute:
Could not lock all virtual machines. The lock process will continue to be retried until it succeeds.
and suddenly it goes on as nothing happened and the job succeeds:
<message>Script sv-smvi-bnc.cmd is starting in phase PRE_BACKUP</message>
basically the jobs are running fine. but it takes ages until the VMs can be locked.
what could prevent the locking?
I don't think it's the VMware snapshots, because they would timeout und the job goes on in minutes, not hours.
could this be an SnapMirror or Snapvault which is running?
