Challenge

Backup Copy job fails with the error:
Error: Virtual disk size is not a multiple of 1KB.

Cause

This most often occurs as a result of a P2V conversion.

Solution

Review the disk of the VM that failed and check for any disks which are not a whole number. This most often presents as a VM having a disk with a size that is not a whole number and is resolved by increasing the size of the disk to the next nearest whole number.

For example, a VM having a disk that is 80.3423432GB is corrected by changing the disk size to 81GB
