Can't Log In to Console or SSH After VMWare Snapshot


Hi All:

We’re presently running 1.1.5 on a VMWare vCenter 6.5 cluster. Our VM backup solution takes snapshots during the backup process; after a snapshot is taken of our VyOS VM, we’re unable to log in to the machine. Pulling up the console session doesn’t allow any keyboard input other than enter which advances a new line. SSH will prompt for a user and password, after which it just sits there with no response.

Thanks for any assistance!


Please update to 1.1.8
and apply this work around


The update and workaround worked beautifully. Thank you for the help!


Always welcome,
i will recommend to configure commit-archive inside vyos and store also configs
never too much backups :slight_smile:
