This works for me. Check This Out This will then mirror how SMVI creates a VMware snapshot. Log Cache ends VCB_COM Log Cache ends SnapshotVM returned -1. NFS or iSCSI/FC? (There's a specific config change for helping with snapshot timeouts if using NFS.)Also, do you ever have issues with snapshots taken manually through the VI client?
