Let's say we have 10 VMs, 6 of them are allocated to the "VMware Backup Proxy" -> the VBR-server itself and 4 are allocated to the Backup Proxy on the old host (wich uses NBD, because it has no access to the shared storage)....

hoFFy wrote:Another thing: At this customer we installed VBR on the fileserver VM (very bad, I know), and the configuration database is saved in the SQL-Server VM (also bad...), this leads to messages like "VM is a baxkup server - no parallel task" (1:20 hours), very long wait times (this VM was waiting for about 5 hours with the message "Required backup infrastructure resources have been assigned) and "Waiting for completion of other tasks (VM is SQL server...)" (44 minutes).
Is there a way to change this behaviour, like backup up these VMs with the other backup proxy?
Or do I really have to install VBR on another (best practise would be a standalone VM..) VM, also hosting the config database itself?
foggy wrote:Task can be assigned to a proxy server only if there is a free slot available there and processing of the task starts immediately. So situation you're describing is not possible (task waiting in a queue after being assigned). Once being assigned, tasks never switch proxy servers.

hoFFy wrote:That's exactly what I meant:
20 VMs are assigned to Proxy1 and 20 VMs are assigned to Proxy2.
The 20 VMs from proxy1 are earlier finished than the VMs assigned to proxy2. Then proxy1 becomes idle and proxy2 has some VMs waiting for the backup proxy assigned to them to become available... the optimization in my opinion would be if these VMs were reassigned to the idle proxy1 instead of waiting for free ressources on proxy2.
