Failed to Snapshot - PVS source machine error

Views

Contents

While using the imaging wizard, after rebooting the target device, it throws an error saying, Failed to snapshot instead of uploading OS into PVS vdisk.

Solution:

Enable Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and Volume Shadow Copy service services. Set them to automatic.

Problem Cause:

Imaging Wizard and P2PVS require the source virtual machine to have both Volume Shadow Copy and Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider services enabled to perform an imaging operation. If either or both of Volume Shadow Copy and Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider services are set to Disabled, the imaging operation fails.
