    This makes the backup of my Windows Server 2003 x64 Std. Edition to failed using VCB v1.5 snapshot.

    Creating snapshot of Virtual Machine

    Cannot create a quiesced snapshot because the create snapshot operation exceeded the time limit for holding off I/O in the frozen virtual machine.


    I've installed the VMWare tools and make sure that the VSS service are all ON
    FYI: this is clean install Windows, nothing in it apart from VMWare tools the latest version from ESXi 4

    Any kinds of help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Finally,

    The following trick actually works for me

    1. Backup the following regkey: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\EventSystem\
    2. Erase the regkey HKLM\Software\Microsoft\EventSystem\{26c409cc-ae86-11d1-b616-00805fc79216} an below
    3. Reboot.
    4. Verify that things are working by running

    vssadmin list writers
    vssadmin list providers.

    and then in the services.msc list of services snap ins, make sure the following services are Started Automatically:

    1. COM+ System Application
    2. Distributed Transaction Coordinator
    3. Volume Shadow Copy
    4. VMware Physical Disk Helper Service

    Automatically but not started:

    1. Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider
    2. VMware Snapshot Provider

    now the backup is all working great

    hope this thread can be ablessings for everyone out there.

    Cheers,

    Albert WT
