Clusters with RDM discs

Post by Powderham » Feb 23, 2018 9:41 am

This is my first ever post here so please be gentle with me.

I am designing a Veeam solution to backup the VMs of a large company.
As well as lots of regular VMs the company have Clustered Servers with physical RDM discs. I know these are not supported by Veeam.

So what are the options.........
Covert the pRDMs to vRDMs
Use Veeam Agent for Windows to backup the nodes (I know it will fail on the passive)

What are the pros and cons of each of the above? Are there any other options?

What other information do you need to answer the above?

Thanks Richard

Hi Richard,

I'd recommend you to review existing discussion about clustered servers and shared storage, also check this KB2304.
Do not hesitate to ask any questions for the clarification. Thanks!
