VADP VIP - Selecting Datastores & vMotion
NBU 188.8.131.52 (Linux)
We have around 800 VMs in our environement which have low thresholds for vMotion...
When setting up VIPs for VM backups, if I select the vmware:/?filter=(Datastore StartsWith "") selection, what happens if one my my VMs decides to vMotion to a different datastore during the backup window? (Or before the XML file is refreshed)?
We have the 're-use VM query results' set to 8hrs. So if a particular VM already has a datastore associated with it in the XML file, then gets moves to a new datastore will the backup fail until the the query results are refreshed?
I have read the whitepapers and can see that NBU VADP is apparently vMotion & DRS aware, but how aware is it?
Any advice would be appreciated.
