Backup Exec 2012 Media server on VM Machine
In our infrastructure we have 3 ESX servers with Vmotion and i also installed BE 2012 Media server on one of the ESX machine in which i installed SAS card for Autoloader. Now When i successfully installed BE Media server on one of the VM machine and successfully configure the Autoloader on BE. But when i run inventory it is getting offline and below error is coming in event viewer
Backup Exec Alert: Storage Error
(Server: "BACKUPSERVER") The drive hardware is offline.
Please confirm that the drive hardware is powered on and properly cabled.
Q1. Now let me know the reason of this error ? and how to resolve this?
Q2. Is this recommend to install media server on a VM on production environemnt?
Q3. As you know SAS card only installed on one of the ESX server and as per Vmotion works BE server could be move on another ESX servers as well so obviuosly backup would be fail in that case ?
