Installing CDP IO Filter

Post by storageguy »

Hi,

I am trying to install the CDP IO Filter on our VMware cluster with 3 hosts.
Does VBR install it and reboot the host one a time? How can we control the installation so that it will install and reboot the host one a time?

Thanks

I remember that the hosts don't get rebooted when the CDP filter driver is installed. This link may help as well - https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... ml?ver=110

I didn't have to reboot after installing.

Ok. That's good to know.
Because the window that pop-up when I tried to install says that the "VMware hosts in the cluster will be switched into maintenance mode"? So i'm thinking it might reboot the hosts.

No, it just does that to ensure VMs are not affected by the install or if something goes wrong.
