Description

Hi,

I am trying to snapshot a VM Datastore on a ESXi host, but even if I think I did it all correct, it still gives me an error.

I setup the vmware snapshot and the snapshot of the datastore, and the login credentials for ESXi are root

Could you please elaborate that a bit more? What error? Where? How is your ESXi configured, etc?

Of course.

I have a R210ii setup with ESXi 6.7, and a bunch of VMs. My main VMs are on a SSD which I tried configuring the vmware-snapshot utility on freenas. Once I setup it, from what I gathered, I had to do a snapshot of the datastore ON freenas, and it would automagically tell ESXi to do a snapshot and save it there (on freenas). The credentials I provided to esxi are root, and work because I was able to select the ESX datastore.

Would Monday at 9 am be okay? I am in Italy, so it should be 1 pm GMT+1

We have debugged this and found out its about incompatible ESXi license, we just need to be more verbose about the error.
