How to stop a running backup task?

Suspense    Sep 12 6:49AM 2017

So i started a backup task of all VMs, but realised this wasnt a great idea.

I attempted to break out of vertical, which went fine, but running a new backup tasks informs me that another task is already running.

How do i distrupt the current running task, without rebooting the esxi machine?

You can run pkill vertical to kill any leftover processes. If you still get the 'Another backup job is in progress' message after this command, remove the file named plock in the .verticalbackup directory.
