Feature Request: Surebackup smart CPU core/socket assignment

Post by nikhil.datacloud » May 30, 2018 8:05 am

Ref Support Case # 03018523

SureBackup will fail if the target host doesn't have enough CPU cores/sockets. Instant Recovery is smarter and assigns the VM as many sockets as the host has (if the VM has more sockets than host, the maximum number of sockets are assigned. It would be nice if SB could behave like IR so that SB jobs can be assigned on a host with fewer resources than the source host.

Hi and welcome to the community!

I would say that this limitation could be overcome by selecting a virtual lab which is located on a host which has enough CPU for VMs that are subjects to test, but I guess I might be missing some important details. Could you briefly describe your environment and SureBackup settings, please?

Thanks

UPDATE: I've checked with R&D and they said that it might be a bug, I will contact your support engineer to obtain the logs that you've provided.

Thanks
