add new VM into vCenter folder

Post by sirhideo » Mar 20, 2015 7:56 pm

Hi

I have a 5 restore points reversed incremental backup job where Friday does full backup. The job backs up all VMs in a vCenter folder. What happen to the backup chain if I add additional VM into the folder?

For example, On Monday to Thursday the job should do reverse incremental, if I add 1 more VM into that folder on Tuesday, what will be backed up on Tuesday for that particular VM?

Thanks

Hi Frankie, backup job will take full backup of this VM on Tuesday and will inject this data into the VBK file. Backup chain will not be affected. Thanks!
