we use vsphere Storage DRS clusters and by default we keep VMDKs together.
We also use Veeam Proxy with hotadd mode.
It seems that when the backup runs, the vmdk gets hot added to the proxy VM - thats fine as expected... but a vcenter event gets logged - 'Configure Storage DRS' ? ..initiated by the Veeam service account running the backup...
The main issue is that after all of this completes the VMs that have had their disks 'hotadded' are left in the 'VM overrides'list of the Storage DRS cluster with 'Keep VMDKs Together' set to No which is not the default for the storage DRS cluster. Its as if the Veeam backup/ hotadd process is not setting the VM back to 'keep VMDKs together'
Has anyone else seen this issue or am I missing something ?
