Well, almost nothing worked. 8-o
I enabled "application-aware image processing" for the entire Job, which is backing up the vSphere cluster. Looks like the account I specified had trouble logging in to most machines.
I'll play around with it, but 2 questions:
- should I be striving to use "application-aware image processing" on all Windows VM's, or only when I have a problem getting the snapshot done in time?
- if I want to enable it for the cluster, the VM's span multiple domains so would take different logins; but it looks like the authentication can only be specified on a per job basis; does that mean splitting the job up, into one job per valid login? another way of asking this: if I only had one VM I wanted to do app-aware processing on, that would have to be in a seperate job, right?
