View Transfer Server....

Post by johnlockie » Jul 12, 2012 5:41 pm

Has anyone managed to configure backup for View Transfer Server?

VMware places a lock on the VM restricting the ability to create snapshots. In order to release this lock I have to put the Transfer Server in maintenance mode. Typically the way to do this is through View Administrator Interface, but that cannot be automated. I am researching a way to script this, but finding few results so far...

Anyone here figure a way around this?

That's good to know :) I have not found an automated method yet either...
