    Changed Block Tracking

    VladimirT Novice

       

      Hi

       

       

      I have  two problems with change block tracking:

       

       

      1. Activating with VirtualMachineConfigSpec does not work. I use the snipet

       

       

       

       

       

      VirtualMachineConfigSpec configSpec = new VirtualMachineConfigSpec;

      configSpec.ChangeTrackingEnabled = true;

      ManagedObjectReference taskMoRef =

      serviceConnection.getService().ReconfigureVm_Task(targetVM_MoRef, configSpec);

       

       

       

       

       

      Task completes successfully. But verifying changeTrackingEnabled field in MOB shows false.

       

       

      To enable it I had to add ctkEnabled field and set it to true.

       

       

       

       

       

      2.  After manually enabling change tracking and rebooting vm, I am creating a snapshot in Virtual Client and in MOB navigating to snapshots -> snapshot -> config -> hardware - virtualdisk - backing and changeId is set to Unset.

       

       

      changeTrackingSupported capability is set to true as well. What am I missing?

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks
