Virtual Appliance SCSI Hot-Add Space Requirement

Post by Nevin »

Hey guys,

Quick question, exactly how much free space is required in order to backup a VM using SCSI hotadd?

From Gostev:
LUN with Veeam Backup server is located should have capacity more than (or equal) the capacity of the disk which is being hot added. Actual free space can be less than hot added virtual disk size.

How much less? I'm asking because some of our datastores have as little as 2% free, and I'm wondering how much is recommended and/or needed.

Thank you guys,

Hi, from the top of my head the amount of free space does not matter, so 2% should be fine. Why are you asking, do you have some issues with hot add? Reason for failure might be different. Feel free to contact our support for some help with troubleshooting. Thanks!
