multiple RDM's

I am currently evaluating Data Recovery to see if it is a good replacement voor vRanger(which we currently use)

I decided to use RDM's instead of VMDK's. Our lun's are 500GB, because this offers the best performance.

When i want to create a new backup, i have to choose the destination, and i can't select to use the multiple locations for the backup.

What to do?

Hello,

You cannot use multible destination for single VM to be backed up.VM01, has to resides eithe on /ISCSI-0:1 or /ISCSI-0:2/.

Better to devide your 500 GB LUN into smaller LUNs between 100 ~ 150 and add those LUNs to vDR as Backup Destination, and configure your backup based on VMs VMDK capacity
