DRS and VEEAM

Post by AlexL » Jan 11, 2011 9:17 pm

Just curious, and not willing to try it in our environment, how does VEEAM handle vMotion while doing a backup. We recently put DRS on fully automatic, just want to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

There are no problems with vMotion kicking in during backup, as VM files are not affected by VMotion (and this is what our product backs up). Thanks!

No problems. As far as I remember, the only backup mode not supporting VMotion during backup is legacy "network" mode based on service console agents. This processing mode is not even available in v5 UI by default.
