We get V-79-8192-38330 errors in the backup log because some machines having independent/persistent vdisks. We know that BE will skip those vmdks for technical reasons and this is what we intend. However the backup gets the status failed which leads to the fact that the customer has to look into every backup log in detail to see if something else caused the backup to fail.
Is there any way that this "error" doesn't cause the backup status being set to failed?
Please refer to few link below that should help you
Thanks for the link.
Seems that we hit another bug/shortcoming of BE 2010. This issue renders VMware Agent useless for us and the availability of VMware agent was the main reason we choose BE here at all. Good thing that we did not already bought at least the agents.
Sorry but I did not get what you said.
Did you say that with the latest fixes for BE 2010 R2 the issue is fixed?
Then I'm wondering why the GRT info is missing for the VMDK which was backed up.
No for BE 2010 r2 issue is not fixed as per the above link but i was suggesting backup exec are bringing lot of hotfixes to resolve the issue & in next few months they might bring newer build which is greater than r2 this information is still internal but for now you can subscribe to the document i have given you so that if any hotfix is released you will be notified on same
Per document http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH144213 as a workaround unter 2. the following is stated:
"2. Exclude the RDM / Independent disk from the backup"
Can anybody give me a hint how this should be done exactly? Within the resource browser I can only operate on machine level and not on vmdk level. So how to exclude the disk from backup?
Thanks for your help.
Would be interresting to know also for us.
We opened a support case and till now it seems that Symantec is not willing to fix this issue. Till now they even do not agree that this is a bug. They still argue this is "works as designed".
It's a pity that after an upgrade you get less functionality compared to prior versions (12.5 where this worked).
Backup Exec 20.03 REV1188
And I have the same issue -->
V-79-8192-38330 - Der virtuelle Computer enthält unabhängige Datenträger. Die Datenträger, die in einem unabhängigen persistenten Modus oder in einem unabhängigen nicht persistenten Modus konfiguriert sind, werden nicht gesichert. Disk '[QNAS VMWARE ISCSI] DockerSRV/DockerSRV.vmdk' is marked as independent persistent. Ignoring for backup.
I did'nt found any way to mark this error to irgnore-List or to skip this vmdk.
Has anyone a actual idea?
