msg.snapshot.error-QUIESCING-ERROR” in vCenter Server

You get this when you clone a powered on vm.



To resolve this issue, start the Windows Virtual Disk service:

  1. Log in to the Windows operating system as an Administrator.
  2. Click Start, type services.msc, and press Enter.
  3. Right-click the Virtual Disk service and click Start.
If this does not resolve the issue, disable VMware snapshot provider in the affected virtual machine:
  1. Disable the VMware Snapshot provider service in the guest operating system.
  2. Restart the Volume shadow copy service.
