Error in backup vm?

Post by agusuarez » Oct 22, 2015 3:34 pm

Hi
I made a backup of a virtual machine (VeeamZip to ...) and supposedly the backup was successful. But in reviewing the returned file, only weighs 16454 KB, when the VM weighs 100 GB. When I make a backup of another virtual machine of the same size, I returned a file of at least 9 GB. I think it's a mistake, but tell me Veeam was successful. You see the backup was done in 1 minute.
What am I doing wrong?

Agustin, cannot see the whole message reported for the backup file as well as the session details (if you click the VM to the left). Any chance the VM has some unsupported disks (independent disks or disks connected via in-guest iSCSI initiator)? Those are skipped from processing automatically.

Hi Alexander, thanks for replying
I found this:
22/10/2015 11:54:04 a.m. :: Disk '[datastore1] POLKA/POLKA.vmdk' has been skipped due to unsupported type (independent)
What should I do in this case?

Convert the disk to any of the supported types.
