The "vmodl.fault.InvalidRequest" message is a generic error message from VMware. We are wondering if you can run the following command a the Windows command prompt to see if we can get a better error message to go on.

C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C ""VBACKUP_APPLICATION_FOLDER\plink.exe" -ssh 192.168.1.63 -P 22 -l root -pw ROOT_PASSWORD -batch "vim-cmd vmsvc/snapshot.create 1 TEST_SNAPSHOT 'Test snapshot' 0 1""

You will need to change the following variables to match your environment:

VBACKUP_APPLICATION_FOLDER
ROOT_PASSWORD

Please reply with the output from this command.

Thank you,

vBackup Team
