Collection of metadata failed, backup aborted

SUMMARY

Collection of metadata failed, backup aborted

ISSUE

When a backup job is run that includes a VM that no longer exists or was moved, PHD Virtual Backup cannot access the VM metadata to begin the backup. For example, if you scheduled a Job that backs up three VMs: VM1, VM2, VM3, then deleted VM3 before the backup job ran, you would see an error similar to:

VM 'Unknown': Collection of metadata failed, backup aborted
