VDP on thin disk (free space <850Go)

Jump to solution

     Hi, I wish tho test VDP before leaving VDR.

I have read in the documentation we can use thin disk rather than thick disk to install VDP (I have not enough space disk).

But I don"t see this option during the deployment of the appliance.

Did I a mistake ?

In VDR my backup were on a windows share, then backup up on tape.

With VDP, what's the best practice to backup on tape because CIFS shares are not supported ?

Thanks.

Hi,

See the attached screen, which shows the provisioning option.

VDP installation 7

2. VDP currently do not have direct integration with tape. But see if the section(vSphere Data Protection Disaster Recovery) from admin guide helps.
