It seems I get conflicting information or read old posts regarding this topic and no clear examples of when to use Application Aware Processing and not to use it.
So my question, for the following below types of servers, what is the proper setting... i.e. to have Application Aware Image Processing on or to have VMware Tools Quiescence on, or neither?
VMSphere 6.5 documentation makes is appear also that integrates with Windows VSS anyway now... so why not use Quiescence tool from VMWare?
Also, why not have the Veeam Application Aware Image Processing on always for Windows servers? What is the downside I having this on even if there are no VSS aware apps?
Windows Domain Controller - AAP on / VM Tools Quiescence off ?
Windows File Server (may have shadow copy on for folders) - AAP off / VM Tools Quiescence off ?
Windows Print Server - AAP off / VM Tools Quiescence off ?
Windows Server running various application (may have some database type application installed / may not ) - AAP on / VM Tools Quiescence off ?
vCenter Server Appliance - AAP off / VM Tools Quiescence on ?
Linux Server w/ PostgreSQL - AAP off / VM Tools Quiescence on?
Thanks for any help/opinions.
