HP EVA SAN DISK NOT DETECTED.

Post by Ibrahim » Nov 03, 2013 2:42 pm

Dear Experts,
We have presented one virtual hard disk size( 150 GB ) through HP EVA SAN. The disk is presented to the Hyper-V physical host as an offline disk. In the hard disk setting of that guest machine the disk is presented as physical disk as "Disk 7 150.00 GB Bus 0 lun 3 Target 0". Veeam is detecting the virtual machine from physical server but the disk size is shown as 0. What changes I have to make so that it can detect the actual size of 150 GB.
Regards.

Hello Ibrahim,

Can you please clarify where do you see this size? Is 0 size displayed when you add this VM to the backup job?

Can you please clarify how have you added this disk to the VM, on the VM configuration layer or via Guest OS of this VM?

Thank you!

Are you saying you have configured a pass-through disk?
We only support backing up VMs with VHD and VHDX virtual disks.
