VeeamBackup_servername missing on ESXi server

Veeam Logoby jjvierra » Fri May 05, 2017 8:18 pm

I recently had to restore my veeam server from backup. Both backups and restores seem to be working fine after the restore. One thing though is I know during the original Veeam install storage was created on my ESXi server that was called VeeamBackup_servername. That is missing now. Since I'm not entirely sure what it was used for and my backups and restores are working is this something I need to worry about? Sorry If this is a dumb question but I'm not that knowledgeable on Veeam.

Thanks in advance

You should be fine. This datastore is used when doing Instant VM Recovery or SureBackup process, it will be re-created after you start using these features again.
