VMware Snapshot not possible: Another task is already in progress.
Wednesday - Sep 29th 2010 - by - (0 comments)
Just tried to create a snapshot of a VM and got the following error:

X Another task is already in progress.

Didn't have this error message for a while and couldn't remember how to fix it. So my good ol' friend Google found the following:

To restart the management agents on ESX host:
Log in to your ESX Server as root from either an SSH session or directly from the console of the server and launch the following commands:

service mgmt-vmware restart
service vmware-vpxa restart


Once this was done, the snapshots could be created again.
