This is an AWS limitation and can occur if N2WS is attempting to take a snapshot of an instance that is in more than one policy and the backup times overlap. If you have more than one policy that contains the
same instance, you will need to ensure the instance backups are not
overlapping, the first backup of the instance must be complete before the
next policy can backup the same instance. You can stagger your schedules to ensure they do not overlap.
