VMware backup failure with msg.snapshot.error-QUIESCINGERROR.

The VMware backup job failed to proceed with the error message "An error occurred while saving a snapshot: msg.snapshot.error-QUIESCINGERROR". I restarted the whole instance and checked in vSphere client during the backup schedule that the same error is shown while the VM snapshot is on progress. Please advise how to fix this issue as we need a valid backup data by end on this weekend.

@Patrick Please check whether the VM machine that you are trying to backup is windows 2008 R2 or windows server 2008 SP2 and update us.

@emmanuel Yes, The VM machine that we are trying to backup is windows server 2008 R2. Is that you are having any limitation in backing up these Os versions ?
