I backed up a test VM and did a VM Instant Recovery which went fine.
I then storage vMotioned the recovered VM to a regular SAN datastore. The first time I shut down the VM while storage vMotion was in progress and apparently vSphere didn't like it... So I started over and the 2nd time it was uneventful.
So now I have the recovered VM back on my production datastore where it used to be, up and running. I guess all I should do to bring everything like it used to be is to delete the original VM (which is still there, switched off) and rename the recovered_VM as original_VM.
I expected Veeam B&R to be aware of the storage vMotion and update the console accordingly. But the recovered_VM still appears as "mounted" in the Instant Recovery window. What happens if I do "Stop Publishing" on it? And what happens to the NFS cache on the Veeam server, do I have to clean it manually?

When you click "Stop Publishing" for a virtual machine, Veeam backup will stop publishing VM files on vPower NFS server. Since VM has already been moved and running of another storage, this will not affect anything.Moebius wrote:But the recovered_VM still appears as "mounted" in the Instant Recovery window.

No, you shouldn't do anything manually. Everything is fully automated, and is a part of VM unpublishing process.Moebius wrote:And what happens to the NFS cache on the Veeam server, do I have to clean it manually?
