vCenter - Planned Maintenance

Post by amanley »

We are planning a quick outage/reboot of the VC. What impact will this have on scheduled backups? Will backups fail? Will they pick up where they left off? What is best practice if you need to bring the VC down while VEEAM backups are configured?

Thanks!

Hello Amy,

Provided that you do not have any running backup jobs (configured through vCenter Server), you should be safe to put vCenter into a maintenance mode. The best practice would be to temporary disable backup/replication jobs, so they do not start while vCenter is not accessible. Once you're done with vCenter maintenance, enable all the jobs back and that's it.

Hope this helps.
