For us, the new behaviour in v8 is a major drawback. We have a container job configured for each VMWare host with lots of VMs, some of which are third party appliances where VMWare Tools just can't be installed.
Creating jobs for non-quiescing VMs, on the one hand, would double the number of jobs we have to run and, on the other hand, for each VM one of my users creates, I'd have to investigate if it contains VMWare tools or not, and assign it to the respective backup job. Before, it was just automatically backed up.
I'd fancy some kind of setting where you can assign a "log level" to the statusses, defining which event will cause warnings and which not.
Until then, I have to control each job every morning, if there are warnings other than caused by missing VMWare tools. Very annoying.
