ESXi 6.0 Hot Add Warnings

Post by Kev » Sep 21, 2015 8:56 am

Hi All

We recently updated our ESXi stacks to version 6.0 and then to 6.0 U1 and ever since, all our VM backups and replica jobs succeed with warnings about hot add not being supported for the disks. We have one VM which backs up and replicates without this warning, which is our backup proxy if that is any help. Our Veeam B&R version is 6.0.0.181. Is this a known issue?

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Kev,

No, it's not a known issue. Do you see just a warning or there is actual failover to network mode as well? Did the location of your proxy VM also change by any chance?

Thanks!

Hi Vitaly

Yes, as I stated, the jobs succeeds but fails over to network mode. This worked as expected before the u/g to esxi6.0u1. No job settings were changed and no proxies have been altered.

Ok, in this case, please open a support case with our technical team for further troubleshooting. Need to see the debug logs to find what has been changed.

Hmmm, not possible. Our support finished when mammoths roamed the earth.

Just saw it... This version doesn't support vSphere v6 and it is also not supported by our technical support any more, check out this topic for further reading > [ALL VERSIONS]Current version is 8.0.0.2030 (June 16, 2015).

I would recommend updating to the latest release, pretty sure you will not observe this issue with a hotadd backup mode.

I think my manager is already looking in to this. Thanks for your help Vitaly.
