Non-VI Workloads Detected...

Post by steves » Aug 23, 2011 8:19 am

Hi,

Having deployed VEEAM backup on our ESXi 4.1 vSphere environment with iSCSI Direct SAN Access, we are observing datastore alarms in vCenter:

Alert
Non-VI workload detected on the datastore

Has anyone else experienced the same? We have the SAN permitted initiators locked down with CHAP and IQN names, so I know exactly the devices that are connecting and its only vCenter-managed ESXi hosts and VEEAM. I think in this scenario disabling the alarm is OK?

Thoughts? Experiences?

Thanks

Hello Stephen,

I believe you can ignore those alarms unless there are some real misconfigurations or I/O performance issues caused by a non-ESX workload. Here is a corresponding VMware KB article for further reading: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/micros ... Id=1020651

Thanks!
