TSM error ANS2310E

Issue:

TSM for VE will sometimes give error ANS2310E The create snapshot task is disabled on the virtual machine ‘*’. As a result, the virtual machine cannot be backed up.

Cause:

If the VM is getting vmotioned or storage vmotioned, snapshot tasks will fail and this error will be created.

Solution:

Retry the backup job at a later time after the vmotion is complete.

The Problem: We have had a few vmware VMs with some file copy problems. And they have produced some very odd messages.

The Workaround: Is to vmotion them to a new host. Seems to be an issue with the hosts physical network cards and network corruption.
