Currently I have created 1 job for each volume (Datastore) as I don't think I want 14 Volumes mounted to the proxy all at once.
Problem is when you move a vm from one datastore to another you have to do a full backup again etc..

Any recommendations/help around this would be appreciated.

ralphmurray wrote:In the current test setup we have a seperate backup job for each nfs volume so we can control how many nfs volumes are presented to the proxy at once, moving a VM from one datastore to another means I would need to move it from one backup job to another. the source is the VM's from Vcenter.
Doing it this way also allows us to have different retention settings for VM's by putting less important servers on the same datastore etc..
