Brand new CL7 server with CPanel. It installed open VM tools by default. I am running VMware 6.7 environment with vcenter. Manually when I try to run a snapshot it is unable to quiesce the file system and hangs the entire server. My backup software does the same.
I've done some investigation and on the web people seems to think it is some sort of incompatibility with VMware Paravirtual disk drivers. I would really prefer to keep the performance increase by using this instead of attempting to revert back to LSI logic.
Has anyone else seen this?
I have Centos 7 machines with open vm tools that backup and snapshot just fine. It has only been my 2 cloudlinux instances. This is why I'm wondering if anyone has seen this before.
