Replication failing on large VM

Post by pearsondan99 » Apr 07, 2010 1:23 am

Situation - a replication job is failing on a large VM (580GB in size) it gets to 290GB then gives up with the error message listed below. Other virtual machines are fine and have replicated sucessfully. The VM is a windows file server (2003 SP2 standard)

Enviornment - Veeam backup 4.1.1. replicating from a san attached ESX 3.5 host (Virtual centre managed) to an ESX 4 host through a firewall

Veeam setup - replication job (via network with encryption) both with and without VSS intergration have been tested

Replicating file "[SAN01] bne1/bne1_1-flat.vmdk" BackupDisk failed Client error: File too large POSIX: Failed to write data to the file [/vmfs/volumes/4bb0882b-07983c18-0cfa-002655d0b781/VeeamBackup/bne1(vm-181)/bne1_1-flat.vmdk]. Server error: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host Failed to process VM disk backup. VMDK path: [vddk://<vddkConnSpec><viConn name="10.1.70.2" authdPort="902" vicPort="443" /><vmxPath vmRef="vm-181" datacenterRef="datacenter-2" datacenterInventoryPath="DC01" snapshotRef="snapshot-856" datastoreName="SAN01" path="bne1/bne1.vmx" /><vmdkPath datastoreName="SAN01" path="ckbne1/ckbne1_1.vmdk" /><transports seq="nbdssl" /><readBuffer size="2097152" /></vddkConnSpec>].

What's the size and block size of the destination datastore ? There might be a limit at 256gb per file depending on it, in case of 1mb block size.

Hello Dan,

Tracking ticket number is automatically generated as soon as you email us to support@veeam.com, please check your spam filter. As for the isssue you have, yes it would be helpful to know what is the current VMFS block size on your target datastore.

Thank you!
