Can someone please explain, why a vSphere Data Protection (VDP) discs sets in independent mode?
What are risk if I deselect it?
I need to backup the VDP appliance.
It is set in independent mode for precautionary purpose. Today we do deselect them temporarily while upgrade. Btw, what is your preferred backup for backing up VDP appliance ? You can follow this section in admin guide - Basic Disaster Recovery
