According to kb2042, there is a bug in VDDK6 and its treatment of VMDKs with duplicate disk names
The workaround from Veeam, was to failback to NBD instead of hot-add

I contacted VMware to see if this was fixed in a newer version, otherwise I need to rename all disks, or move them to different SCSI IDs; changes that requires downtime

They said

We have checked internally, there are no such issues from VMware end.

Please find the link mentioned below.

Is this something Veeam needs to report?

I will ask support guys to update the article, if required. Anyway, as the KB says, if you're running at least Veeam B&R Update 2, there's nothing to worry about, since the issue was worked around there.

According to our information (VMware SDK support case 15684272306), the issue is still there and is planned to be fixed in VDDK 6.0 U2. I admit engineer you've talked to could confuse the issue with some other one.

Anything new on this one? Looks like VDDK 6.0 U2 was released on March 15th and includes the fix.

Thanks for the heads up, we will test this new VDDK version and based on the results will consider including it in the next product update/release.
