Proxy Hot Add Disks, vSAN, and Storage Policies

Post by bhagen » Apr 10, 2019 10:46 pm

How do I ensure that when a disk is Hot Added to one of my Veeam Proxy servers, that disk uses a certain storage policy?

I've been having latency issues during replications, and (among myriad other things) I noticed that my veeam proxy VMs are all set to FTT=1. I want to set all the hot added disks to FTT=0 (why do twice the amount of work when these disks are transient?) when they're added. I have a policy called FTT=0.

Thoughts?

Hello,
I don't believe that HotAdd with FTT=1 or FTT=0 has any influence on the backup speed. The hot-add process does not store any data, it's just reading. So FTT does not have any influence from my point of view.

Best regards,
Hannes
