Between 3 and 7 am this morning, one of our VDR appliances sent 1900 emails with the report information. I'm wondering what could have caused this. It's not supposed to send anything untill 8 am.
Edit: It stopped at 7 am because my coworker rebooted the appliance.
I just had the same thing happen to me. Have you seen this again or know what caused it?
Same thing happend here this morning. 392 mails were sent out between 08:00 ant 09:20. But only the first one had the compleate report. The rest contained:
VMware Data Recovery 18.104.22.1681

PS: I had to reboot the appliance to be able to connect in vCenter console.
Anyone have a clue?
This has happened to me about 5 times in the past 8 months. I've resigned myself to bouncing the VDR server when it spams us and setting the reports to M-F at 9am so I'm guaranteed to be in the office. The last time it happened I was able to bounce the server before it sent an 8th email.
The last time it happened was today, so I'd like to find the root cause as much as anybody else.
Same thing has happened to every VDR 2.0 appliance I have installed. I litterally just got done rebooting all of our VDR appliances that had sent out 4000+ emails to my co-workers and I. VMware....PLEASE FIX WHATEVER IS WRONG WITH THE VDR APPLIANCE!!!!!
this has occured in my environment a few times over the last several months, most recently this morning.
'version 22.214.171.1241' of our appliance sent out hundreds of emails over a ~40 minute period and would not allow me to reconnect to it from vSphere client.
hard power cycle was the only option.
