Attached is the bug report file, as requested.

Output from XenCenter is:

05.04.2011 12:50:04 Error: Snapshotting VM 'wabe-srv01-nfs-qnap000'... - The quiesced-snapshot operation failed for an unexpected reason

Using xe I get this output:

The quiesced-snapshot operation failed for an unexpected reason
vm: 4c3fea4b-bd2e-b72b-105d-38342b5f6660 (wabe-srv01-nfs-qnap000)
<extra>: 6

I hope this helps.

Hi Lars,


Could you please send across logs generated by “xen-bugtool –yestoall”?


If that is too big, it would help to have at least the following logs after the issue is reproduced:


1)      /var/log/SMlog

2)      /var/log/xensource.log

3)      /var/log/messages


It would also help to see the exact output on the command line when this fails, I think it might return an addition error code.
