Taking a quiesced snapshot of Windows Server 2019 VM fails with the following error:

Code Block
Backup of the "X" VM has failed

Source host could not create quiesced (application-aware) snapshot of this VM.


To solve this problem, use BIOS boot and utilize the MBR disk layout or fall back to the filesystem-consistent snapshot. The issue is expected to be fixed by Microsoft in the future with the Windows Server 2019 release.
