I'm looking to see the impact of vTPM enabled VM's (Not Encrypted VM's) Is there any documents or information detailing what impact vTPM has on Veeam backups. Most of what I find is assuming that if you're talking about vTPM your also doing VMDK encryption which is not what I'm looking at. Basically just enabling vTPM to expose capability to the Guest os (cred guard, etc).

Thank you.

Re: vTPM

well, it's more than "just enable a vTPM", but from a backup perspective it's not relevant.

It stays "just a VM" (well, it's Hyper-V running on VMware, but we don't care).

By the way: how do you add a vTPM without encrypting the VM on VMware side? As far as I know, that's a requirement.

Best regards,
