I sincerely hope someone is able to help me create a VSS snapshot. I'm running XCP 1.0 and the VM in question in a German SBS 2003 with the Citrix provider and tools from XS 5.6 FP1 installed. When attempting to create a quiesced snapshot I always receive this error:

"Error: Snapshotting VM 'wabe-srv01'... - The quiesced-snapshot operation failed for an unexpected reason"

We have this problem with every XS / XCP installation since XS 5.6 / XCP 0.5. I've scoured the Citrix forums, where I've seen a few others have exactly the same problem, but have been unable to resolve this issue.

So, I now maintain creating quiesced snapshots of my 2003 servers is impossible. I challenge someone to prove me wrong!
