This is a known issue affecting incremental virtual machines backups, which rely on CBT running on ESXI 5.x hosts.


To resolve this issue on an affected virtual machine:

  • Shut down the virtual machine.
  • Remove any existing virtual machine snapshots.
  • Disable CBT for the virtual machine.
  • Remove or rename any files ending with the *-ctk.vmdk file extension in the virtual machine directory.
  • Enable CBT for the virtual machine again.
  • Power on the virtual machine.
  • Ensure that the virtual machine is not migrated using Storage vMotion or Storage DRS.
