Arcserve appends +ww-P+ to end of vmdk

We've recently noticed that folder names and vmdk files have been appened with the "Ww-P"

We suspect this is caused by the CA Arcserve Backup Process. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Hello,

Can you give me some more details on your environment and how you are backing up the VM's? VCB/VDDK etc?

What version of ARCserve are you running?

We are using VSphere4 and the VCB proxy which we have installed VDDK as per the CA Arcserve Instructions

We are using Arcserve version 12.5, with Virtual Machine Agents installed in the VM's.

The issue has occured with systems that I've never restored. Therefore I suspect it something to do with the backup process.

I think the best thing to do is to isolate one of the normal VM's and backup it up using the varierty of backup methods that CA uses (Raw, Mixed, File Mode) and determine which one is causing the issue.

Image attached.
