VCB & NW 7.5.1 VCB Proxy is Windows 2008 x64. ALLVMFS Fails

Hi,

Has anybody used Networker 7.5.1 with VCB on a windows 2008 x64 proxy host?

I have installed this environment but have had problems using the ALLVMFS saveset when trying to backup Windows 2008 VMs.

I have the following configuration:

Networker Server 7.5.1.

vCenter with 6 ESX 4.0 servers and several VMs (some Windows 2003 & some Windows 2008)

I have a Storage Node running Windows 2008 x64.

Using the ALLVMFS saveset to backup the Windows 2003 VMs works fine.

Using the C\ saveset to backup Windows 2008 also works fine.

When trying to use ALLVMFS saveset to backup Windows 2008 VM I get "Access is Denied" on folders such as "Documents & Settings" etc.

and the backup fails.

The strange thing about this is that the backup only fails on ALLVMFS. I can backup the C\ saveset of the same VM without issues.

When using a Windows 2003 VCB proxy I can backup ALLVMFS on Windows 2008 VMs.

Any idea? since I have not found this issue documented anywhere in Powerlink or Vmware knowlegebase.

Thanks
Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

Are you using Windows 2008 as the VCB Proxy?

If this is the case, this is not supported.

Currently the only OS or platform support for VCB Proxy are Windows 2003 SP1/SP2 (x86 and x64).

Hope this helps.
