Restoring of VMDK
I have this VM of a file server that has mounted drives that makes up additional VMDKs for e.g.
FILESVR.vmdk (this is the OS)
FILESVR_1.vmdk (2TB - D:\)
FILESVR_2.vmdk (2TB - E:\)
When i perform a backup of the vmdk + GRT, i have excluded the _1 and _2, due to the size of the disk itself.
1. It takes an hour to complete, and i noticed because of GRT enabled, it updates the catalog and it takes really long (Status; Updating Catalogs)
2. When i try to do a restore of the OS vmdk to other location, the restore job is successful but 0 byte count.
Please note that i have used the Backup for Windows Agent on the other 2 D:\ and E:\ and for the OS, i use Backup for AVVI, VMWare
The VMs are running on a licensed vCenter.
