have an esx cluster with a vm which acts as proxy vm (server 2012 R2). proxy vm is configured to use hot add mode (failback to nbd if hot add is not possible).
set up two separate jobs for each of our 2012 r2 fileserver. both jobs do failover to nbd (for all disks, system and data) with the message:
Code: Select all
11.04.2014 13:15:31 :: Hot add is not supported for this disk, failing over to network mode (Festplatte 1) esxi version 5.1 u2 vm version vmx-09
created a test vm (2012 r2) and if i backup this vm, it does use hot add mode and does not switch to nbd.
so it seems not to be a general problem. any idea why this happens?
