Application-consistent quiescing is not supported for virtual machines with Dynamic disk.

Problem

Application-consistent quiescing is not supported for virtual machines with Dynamic disk.

Solution

Do not use VMware application-consistent snapshots to backup Dynamic Disks. If you take a snapshot of a Dynamic Disk (Microsoft specific file system), you will not be able to revert to the snapshot. Snapshot technology does not have visibility into dynamic disks and cannot preserve the quiesce state of the disk files.
