Business View group storage by Datastore Cluster

Post by DeadEyedJacks » Feb 20, 2017 3:29 pm

Business View group storage by datastore cluster; is this possible ?

I've tried applying VMware tags to datastore objects and then using Dynamic grouping expression but all datastores remain in the "Not Set" category.

Is there a more direct test as to which VMware datastore cluster a VMFS datastore is within?

Using Veeam One 9.0

Thanks

Hello, there is no such an option in Business View now. You may group datastores based on many factors, but not on datastore cluster.
We will take the request into account for later releases though.
Thank you!

As a workaround, you can manually set tags (via static rules) to datastores belonging to a particular cluster.

I have a +1 one request.

I have done this manually and it's really simple as long as there is some logic and consistency used when naming a datastore in VSphere. The problem comes in when there is noe real logic applied to the datastore names. Being able to dynamically create them with Sphere tags would be a great feature.
