Citrix MCS and Powershell 'snapshot name is already in use'

Hi,

I try to create a Snapshot from Citrix via Host connection.

 

New-HypVMSnapshot -LiteralPath "XDHyp:\HostingUnits\....\VirtualMachines.folder\VDI-Test.vm" -SnapshotName "snapshot1"

 

whatever name i try i get an error:New-HypVMSnapshot : The supplied snapshot name is already in use.
At line:1 char:1
+ New-HypVMSnapshot -LiteralPath  "XDHyp:\HostingUnits\...\VirtualMac ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (Smiley Happy [New-HypVMSnapshot], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Citrix.XDPowerShell.HostStatus.SnapshotNameAlreadyInUse,Citrix.Host.Sdk.Commands.NewHypVMSnapshotCommand

 

what am I missing here?
