Surebackup custom names for replica vms

Veeam Logoby Osk » Fri Jun 30, 2017 8:24 am

Hello,

Is there any way to add custom suffix to my surebackup replicas? While surebackup is running my replica vm's in isolated network have names like "vmname_somehash". I would like to add "_replica" suffix to them. So it could be vmname_somehash_replica.

Not sure it is possible to add this now to the SureBackup job, but what is the name of your replicated VMs? Don't they have this suffix already?

Hey Vitaliy,

Nope they names are orginalvmname_somehash. For example dc01_btbreqjdsa7669dasdsadj43btbsflsedk :D Hash looks more like md5 or smth. I use esxi 6.0u3 with vcenter and b&r 9.5 ent. essentials.

Not sure whether we're following you on that. Since replica VMs have already some identifier (hash) assigned, what's the idea to rename them second time? Thanks.

Hashes are random for every vm. I would like to set some vcenter politics, alarm excludes for replica vms (for example for mac adress conflicts prod. vm with replica vm). It's posible with prefix or sufix in vm name but it has to be constant for every job.

Then, it's worth adding prefixes or suffixes via replication jobs, not surebackup ones. Alternatively (instead of renaming), you can assign a tag for replicated VMs and make exclusions, based on it. Thanks.
