veeam restore esx 5.5

Post by kornelg » Nov 04, 2013 11:46 am

i am trying to restore a vm that has 4gb ram to an esx 5.5 and it says that i cant migrate to the local datastore because it has 4096 mb memory and it is larger than datastores 1024 mb.i am doing only a test if i can restore the vms to esx 5.5.
is it because the esx is also there installed at this local datastore? there is enough free space.

Hi John,

Can you please tell me how exactly are you trying to restore the VM? Restore Job? Quick Migration job? Also I'm a bit confused with your post as VM RAM configuration should have nothing in common with datastore size. Anyway, I believe the issue here is the target ESXi host, be aware that vSphere 5.5 is not supported yet.

Thanks!

through instant vm recovery.this vm has 4 gb ram and when i try to migrate from veeam nfs to local datastore it says that it cant do that because local datastore has limit of 1024mb and its not supported.i cant understand this!
ive tried the migration through vcenter web lient and through veeam(quick migration).i ve tried also quick migration through veeam at that datastore and job failed!

Could be because vSphere 5.5 is not supported with the current product version, so I would recommend waiting for the patch 2 for Veeam B&R that will introduce support for this vSphere version. Thanks!
