Avamar Client for Vmware
Unable to perform VMware client Image backups and they are failing with Code 10056.
The Snapshot create task fails with the following errors:
avvcbimage Warning <16002>: Too many extra snapshot files (3) were found on the VMs datastore. This can cause a problem for the backup or restore.
avvcbimage FATAL <16018>: The datastore information from VMX '[MLUN] Datastore/TestMachine.vmx' will not permit a restore or backup.
avvcbimage Info <0000>: Starting graceful (staged) termination, Too many pre-existing snapshots on the datastore will not permit a restore or backup. (wrap-up stage)
avvcbimage Error <9759>: createSnapshot: snapshot creation failed
The log shows Avamar did not detect there is Snapshot for this VM initially:

However, there are Snapshot files on the Datastore:
