VMs backed up (full) on 2 seperate datastores within hours
We have been doing offhost backups for years. Running 188.8.131.52. No issues until yesterday. Each policy using auto queries such as
vmware:/?filter=Cluster AnyOf "managedIP" AND ESXserver AnyOf "bwvm4poclab","bwvm3poclab","bwvm1poclab","bwvm2poclab" AND Datastore Equal "MIP_SAN_LUN0" AND NOT Template Equal TRUE AND Powerstate Equal poweredOn
Yesterday, all the VMs did full backups within a couple hours of each other but on different datastores, which is not possible because we have none of the auto-magic anything licensed. No failover occured, there was no maintenance going on, nor any storage vmotion yet the VMs appeared to NBU as residing on different LUNs at almost the same time, so, they all did double full backups during the backup window. I only keep the query results for a day, and nothing changed on the backend which can explain this bizarre behavior. Anyone seen this or know how this is even physically possible?
