Vsphere Intergration after failure

Post by Michael64 »

Recently had a vsphere controller lock us out, it wasn't accepting domain accounts and local passwords were not working either.
As a result the appliance had to be replaced.
So far so good.
Two issues resulted when adding new controller to veeam.

1. Attempting to remove existing failed controller resulted in a message box detailing all the jobs still being used by this controller.
The problem was that the box was so long it exceeded the length of the screen so I was unable to click the ok button at the bottom of the box, had to use task manger to kill veeam.

2.Attempting to transfer jobs to new controller was taking 3 minutes to time out trying to find the controller.
There needs to be a quick way to reassign jobs to a new controller.

To solve this issue I deleted the database and recreated all the jobs.
Yes, there may be a way for support to rewrite the jobs but as it was a time critical issue there was no time for a support case resolution.
Hope technical can look at these issues and make a great product even better.

You're talking about vCenter appliance, right? If so, next time you face similar issue make sure to use this utility. It allows you to migrate existing jobs between vCenter servers. Thanks!
