even the newest VDP 6.1 is EOL - so you better switch to another Backup/Replication solution
Well, it's another solution but, these days, and having runing ok the principal VDP, I'd like to configure this one as a second backup.
which version of vcenter do you have ? VDP isnt also supported with 6.7, max. is 6.5
The versions are:
- Vsphere Web Client Versión 6.5.0 Compilación 4602587 and the
- VDP 6.1.
- VMware ESXi, 6.5.0, 4564106
Reading the post you send me, I have verified that there isn't a duplicity IP and restarted de VM and the NAS. Nothing changes.
remove vmdk (except the first with 200gb)
then the wizard guides you through the steps
I tried it last time and the VM couldn't boot.
I am thinking that maybe I am wrong with the installation at this point.
I want just a replication of the backup, not a replication of the all environment. So, have I to choose VDP (and from the principal VDP replicate to this second VM) or a VDP Replication target.
The idea is if the first backup fails (nas) I can recover the VMs from the other NAS with the replication.
I edited fstab, removed lines refering to the backup vmdk, and reboot. The VM stopped at the same point, 70% and same error.
yes - looks like vdp knows about the old data-vmdk. i would start from scratch and deploy a new one
If you want a replica, why not use vSphere Replication instead? That is what it was designed for,
