Received this error [2009-03-06 09:34:26.750 ‘vcbMounter’ 7956 error] Error: Backup snapshot already exists when running a script to backup a VMware ESX virtual machine on the vcbProxy server. I following the post at NetworkAdminKB to delete the ‘_VCB-BACKUP_’ snapshot from the Snapshot Manager within the VMware Infrastructure Client. I had to restart the ‘VMware Virtual Mount Manager Extended’ service on the vcbProxy server as well.
