Hot Add backup of VMDK's larger than 2 TB

Post by rfn » Dec 10, 2015 9:06 am

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,
René Frej Nielsen

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.
