Multiplexing with VSphere API Policy
I am having issues when using multiplexing to MSL drives with my VMWare backups, at present I am backing up approx 80 VM clients using the NBU VSphere API to my VLS, this means that all allocated drives are used and each individual clinet backup is using one single virtual cartridge, I wanted to move the VM backups onto out LTO5 MSL and use multiplexing to sream several clients onto a drive therefore using less tapes.
If I run the backups using media multiplexing set to 4 in the policy (we have 4 LTO5 drives in the MSL) and leave the maximum concurrent write drives to 4 on the Storage Unit the backups work fine with a single VM Client backing up through a single drive; hiowever, if I enable multiplexing and set the maximum streams per drive on the storage unit then the backups fail with an error 71, it does not matter how many stream I set on the storage unit this still fails the backups.
Just wondering if this is due to the policy being a VM VSphere API policy?
Thanks in advance
