Good Morning all
I am trying to perform a backup to USB disk on my VM file server for use with Offsite backup. On a physical server I would connect the portable device and point the backup to the drive.
When I connect the device to the host it is not detected by vSphere. At first I thought the usbarbitrator had stopped and required restarting, but I tried a 1TB USB device and that shows no problem.
Is there a USB hard disk limit that ESX will support? I would of thought I would have found something with a google search but I couldnt find anything.
The 2TB disk shows up on my laptop and PC, it is formatted as NTFS (if that makes a difference).
Thanks in advance
I am having the same issue, a 1 TB USB drive appears fine and works well, coming up as formatted as NTFS within the VM. When I connect a 2TB drive of the same make, the USB device isn't available to pass through.
