Vmware Snapshot not deleted using SMVI

Hi people,

I have a customer with an avrage size SMVI deployment. They are running the latest version of SMVI but still on VI3.5

The have 2 VM's that are giving trouble. The VMware Snapshots are failing to delete after SMVI job completes.

The unique thing about these VM's is that they have 4cpu's and 9Gig of ram assigned to them.... I feel this is the issue but any advice would be welcomed.

Thanks and regards

Problem solved.......

The ESX default timeout of 15mins was being reached with the 2 VM's that have 9gig of ram..... I have seperated these VM's into different DataStores and all is well....

Thanks for all your help...

Do you know where this default timeout is set?
