I have a 700GB server image copying from one datastore to another on the same host, using the vSphere client version 5.1.
I used copy and paste. This created a task, and it's been 5 hours and only 14% of the task has completed.
I am using my laptop to perform this task, and I need my laptop to do something else that would require me to switch networks, forcing me to exit out of the vSphere client.
Question: Would the copy task be cancelled or interrupted if I close out of the client? If so, is there a workaround I can use to keep the task running and letting me exit out of the client?
