Resource: "VMVCB::\\...\....\Server" is not snappable. Attempting to back up directly from the source volume.
Hi Guys, Im getting this message (not error) for all my VMs when backing up:
Note: Resource: "VMVCB::\\vcenterserver\VCGuestVm\(DC)Datacenter(DC)\vm\SERVERNAME" is not snappable. Attempting to back up directly from the source volume.
Firstly this is reported against ALL my VMs and not just SQL and Exchange as most searches I found mentioned.
I guess Im just trying to understand why more than anything else. This isnt an error or causing any VM backups to fail. It works absolutly fine!
Im using BE 2012 SP1 with HF 1897571,180964, 194470. Utilizing the AVVI agent with GRT and GRT for Exchange and SQL. All my remote agents are updated to the latest version. Target is to dedupe using SAN transport.
Here is an form the job log:
Family Name: "Media created 10/11/2012 6:00:07 PM" Backup of "VMVCB::\\server.domain.com.au\VCGuestVm\(DC)Datacenter(DC)\vm\SERVER Backup set #1 on storage media #1 Backup set description: "Colo Prod Servers -VMs Full and Incremental with Full Monthly Duplicated to Tape-Weekly Full" Backup Method: Full - Back up virtual machines The option to enable the restore of individual files and folders from a virtual machine backup was selected for this backup. The Agent for Windows must be installed on the virtual machine to use Granular Recovery Technology to restore data.

|Backup Set Detail Information|
Media Label: IMG004058 GRT backup set folder: \\.pdvfs\SERVER\2\BEData\STHVMDK\IMG004058 Transport mode 'san' was used for the disk 'SERVER.vmdk' Backup Exec has discovered and protected 'C:' on virtual machine 'SERVER.rocla.com.au'. Backup Exec has discovered and protected 'D:' on virtual machine 'SERVER.rocla.com.au'.
Like I said It doesnt appear to be a problem, backups work fine as do restores but if anyone could shed some more light on it that would be great for my own peice of mind.
