Veeam ONE causing alarms in vCenter with VSAN

Post by AuGL » Jul 22, 2019 11:09 pm

I setup a new installation of Veeam ONE, as we had the licensing but no one ever implemented it where I work.

After configuring the vCenter connection in Veeam ONE, it started to collect data (all default settings). We make use of VMware VSAN and so only have a VSAN datastore.
I noticed a number of alarms appearing in vCenter, to do with the VSAN Stats DB (VSAN performance metrics), and also some hosts experiencing connectivity issues.

I had to shutdown the Veeam ONE server, and everything then returned to normal shortly after.

Why is Veeam ONE causing this problem?

Support ticket: 03676313.

Hello,
please understand that only support can find out the reason.

It's hard to guess a specific issue. In general Veeam ONE does not create alarms on vCenter with VSAN (I have customers with that setup without any problem)

Best regards,
Hannes

So I have a temporary fix from support to change some files in Veeam ONE, so it does not query the vSAN performance metrics so often, that resolved the initial problem. Now I have an issue with Veeam ONE not being able to complete the data collection, it finishes with a warning as it reaches the timeout limit.

I saw in this weeks Veeam community digest that a new version of Veeam ONE has been released.
Are there any fixes in this release for vSAN?
Where can I get the release notes?

So finally after weeks I've eventually had someone from Support actually confirm that Veeam ONE causes the following alarms to appear in vCenter:
"vSAN object health" and "Hosts with connectivity issues".

This is in 9.5 Update 4 and in 4a they disabled the vSAN performance monitoring to workaround it. So I'm not getting any performance data in Veeam ONE for the vSAN datastore.

Any fixes or improvements coming in the next version, so that the datastore reporting works again with VSAN?

Thanks for replying.

I am running Veeam ONE 9.5 Update 4a. I'll wait for the next release then, hopefully VSAN datastore monitoring is working again.
