I've started using ghettoVCB and it seems to work well. Admittedly when I restore a Windows 2008 R2 machine from a live backup I get a "Windows Error Recovery" screen. The default selection (in the Windows console) to allow the VM to start normally works fine.
- Are there options in ghettoVCB to avoid this behaviour for Windows VMs or is this expected ?
- Should I be using options such as VM_SNAPSHOT_MEMORY and VM_SNAPSHOT_QUIESCE ?
Specific details of the setup are given below:
ESXi version: 6.0.0 Build 2494585
ghetto VCB version: 4/3/2015 (Charles Labri)
Backup datastore type: NFS
guest OS: Windows Server 2008 R2
