I was messing around with backing up at the host level and would run into the error 'Unable to quiesce disk'. I tested whether or not I could manual snapshot through the Vsphere web management client and ran into the same thing. Searched around and found various solutions but the one that I found most interesting is to uninstall VMware tools and reinstall it without the Volume Shadow Copy option. Sure enough I can create a snapshot with quiescing enabled. Is this an acceptable solution?
