Feature request - Manage quiescence per VM

Post by masonit » Feb 13, 2018 8:43 am

Hi

Would be good if we could control quiescence per VM instead of per job. Ex: If we have a job with both VMs that need application aware and quiescence. Then we are unable to add a VM to that job that should run without application aware and quiescence. It works but it will always show a warning. Often about lack of vmware tools on VM (appliance).

We had to create a job for Linux VMs without VMware tools.

If you go to Guest Processing and click on the "Applications..." Button, you can remove Objects there. (If it's a full Host you can remove that host and add the VM's you want AAP for)
Additionally, you can go to "Edit..." and change the radio buttons from "Require succesful processing" to "Try application processing, but ignore failures" to get a "success" even though the AAP didn't work.

AAP is not the same as quiescence. Yo can control AAP per VM, but quiescence is a global option per job.

Yes you can ignore fails, but if I have enabled AAP and quiescence I like to have a warning or an error if it fails.
We like to have the option to disable quiescence for a single VM and still get a warning if it fails on a VM where it should work.
