VMware Snapshot copies are not deleted


VMware Snapshot copies might not be deleted if you are backing up a resource group that is using a policy in which the VM consistency option is selected and a VMware Snapshot copy fails for one of the VMs in the resource group. This option quiesces the VMs in the resource group before the backup is performed. When a VM Snapshot copy fails, the VMquiesce flag is set to false, which prevents the VMware Snapshot copies from getting deleted. This situation can cause out-of-disk-space conditions.
