Hot Add backup of VMDK's larger than 2 TB

Hi,

Just a quick question: Would we have any problems backing up VMDK's larger than 2 TB with Hot Add when using VBR?

Regards,

There used to be issues related to certain vSphere version, but they have been solved already. Thanks.

Correct, entirely depends on vSphere/VMFS versions. Another useful link on the matter.

Great, thanks! We're on vSphere 5.5 so should be home safe.
