Veeam replication not honoring changed dynamic max memory?

Post by loelly » Mar 30, 2015 8:44 am

So, I've got a Linux virtual machine running on Windows Server Hyper-V 2012 R2 and being replicated to another Server 2012 R2 using Veeam v8. The virtual machine is configured to use dynamic memory. Now I changed the value for maximum memory on the VM from 2 GB to 4 GB and would expect Veeam to detect this change and to configure the replica VM accordingly, but it doesn't, it stays at 2 GB on the destination host.

Is this a known limitation? Any chances this will change in the future?

Maik, this is a known issue that will be addressed in the upcoming Veeam B&R v8 Update 2.

It looks like this has not yet been fixed, am I right?

Are saying that you've already updated to Update 2b and the said problem still persists?

So, after upgrading to Update 2b, the job no longer fails but dynamic min and max memory is set to startup memory, which is a bad thing (= bug). Veeam should put the exact same memory options to the replica as the original virtual machine (was so before Update 2b).

EDIT: opened case /w support, ID 00975178.

Maik, this is actually another issue that is scheduled to be addressed in v9. The original issue (not syncing dynamic memory changes) was addressed in Update 2.
