Backup for Citrix NetScaler

Veeam Logoby hkito » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:42 am

Hi,

Got the warning for NetScaler backup.

- Guest processing skipped (check VMware Tools status)


But NetScaler not available to update VMware Tools.

Is this backup succeed ? Restore ok ?

Thanks

Hi,

That means that no Guest processing was performed during the backup. That is, it was crash-consistent. The most reliable way to know if the backup is ok to restore is to use either Instant Recovery feature or SureBackup. Since NetScaler is a loadbalancer I suppose it does not heavily rely on transaction-consistency, so crash-consistent backup should be ok.

Thank you.

If the Guest OS of the Virtual Machine being backed up does not have VMware Tools installed, disable the following setting in the job:

Storage > Advanced > vSphere > Enable VMware tools Quiesence

My Netscalers (VPX 11.1) have VMware Tools so I have this setting enabled but leave 'Application Aware Processing disabled'.
