HotAdd Clarification In Regards to Blocksize

Post by chamdor » Mar 25, 2011 3:28 am

Hi,

I heard a Veeam SE say today that all datastores must have an identical block size for hotadd in virtual appliance mode to work.

I was under the impression that as long as the datastore that the Veeam Backup server was on had the LARGEST ( lets say the max 8MB ) block size, then the block size of the other datastores doesn't matter.

Is it the case that all datastores must have equal block size for Veeam to use/support hot-add, and if so why ?

That is not true.

That is correct.
