Backup up multiple vcenters with one TSM4VE ?

Backup up multiple vcenters with one TSM4VE ?
May 03, 2018 12:59PM
In the past with TSM4VE 7.1.2 we had manually set up our backup schedulers
and we could have different scheduler services point to different vcenter
servers. Now we are getting vcenter 6.5 virtual appliances that need to be
backed up and the docs say we must have at least version 8.1 of TSM4VE to
support vcenter 6.5. When you install the newer versions of TSM4VE you
specify a single vcenter at the beginning and it is not clear to me if
there is any way to have a single TSM4VE server backing up more than one
vcenter?

Perhaps this is a good time to explore Spectrum Protect Plus 10 (TSM4VE
virtual appliance)? Has anyone switched to that yet?

It all depends on what you want I guess. Running the BA-client with an alternate dsm.opt is quite simple, but if you want the benefits of the TSM4VE GUI, then you’ll most likely wind up with multiple VM’s running TSM4VE, one for each vCenter.

Without much knowledge of SPP, I would bet 10 cents that you’ll need multiple SPP servers for multiple vCenters.

You do not need multiple SPP servers for multiple vCenters.
