VMWare Tools are not found - Warning status

Post by redhorse » Jun 25, 2019 6:53 am

Hello,

we have a disk backup job which is enabled for VMWare Tools quiescence where appication-aware image processing is disabled. Now, we have two Linux appliances withoud VMware Tools installed. The backup works fine but we get a warning with the following error message:

"Cannot use VMware Tools quiescence because VMware Tools are not found."

The whole result of the backup job is warning because of this informational message, is it possible to change this behaviour? Unfortunately, it is not possible to define exception for certain VMs to disable VMWare Tools quiescence.

Thanks

With the following registry key the warning turns into a info:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication:DisableVMwareToolsNotFoundWarning (REG_DWORD),1
