When you use the NetVault Backup Plug-in for Consolidation, the image-level backups of virtual machines are displayed on the Create Selection Set page, but you cannot consolidate these savesets.
To avoid file fragmentation, the Plug‑in for VMware preallocates disk space before restoring files to disk. On Linux-based systems, files that are larger than 50 MB in size are not pre‑allocated full disk space. Such files are handled similar to sparse files and allocated disk space as needed during restore. If the disk does not have sufficient space to fully restore files that are larger than 50 MB in size, the job fails when the disk runs out of space.
If the Diagnose Virtual Machine method is unable to return any result within the timeout interval (five minutes), the Web Service process displays the following message: “Error: The remote machine: <Name of the NetVault Backup Server> is unavailable”
You can close this dialog box to continue the current operation. In the background, the Diagnose Virtual Machine method runs the cleanup process to remove any snapshot that it has created.
If you are using a Windows-based proxy server, restart the server after you remove a VDDK. If you try to install or remove the VMware Vstor2 MntApi driver without restarting the server, you might encounter an error. For more information, see .
