Vmware Backup Limit - 4 Virtual Guest Machines
February 06, 2012 12:57AM
Hi all
Going through my Vmware testing on 7.0.1 and when I done my initial testing, I wrote myself a note, saying that there is a limit that only 4 Virtual Machine Guests can only be backed up at one time.
Is this correct, or did I misunderstand my note? I have over 200 ![b][i][/i][/b][b][i][/i][/b]

Simon,

I think this limit is per datastore not global.

Can I ask how yours is setup?
I was initially thinking of one Policy and cramming the VM's in this one policy.

If anyone has suggestions, that would be appreciated?

Thanks
Simon

Simon,

VMWare setup her is about 600 VMs ( and increasing ) over several datastores. We are running Netbackup 7.1.x and backups are done using SAN with 4 proxy hosts (no VCB but "Full Mapped Volume" using vStorage API). We use the query facility in the Policy to automatically add VM to the specific policy. The limit of 4 VM is per VMWare datastore. During backup period, There is about 24 concurrent VM backups ( 6 per proxy ).
