New features

Added ability to enable and disable VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion® (Storage vMotion) locking on the Configure dialog box. (31422)
IMPORTANT: To back up virtual machines that are protected by vSphere FT with plug-in version 11.2 or later, your environment must use VMware® ESXi™ 6.0 build number 4192238 or later. If you use an ESXi host with an unsupported build, vSphere FT protection might become disabled during the snapshot process. This issue is more likely to occur when the virtual machine uses Windows 2008 or later as the guest OS and it uses the VMware Tools VSS provider to take quiesced snapshots. For more information, see VMware KB article 2145664.


The following is a list of enhancements implemented in Plug‑in for VMware 11.2.

Added tags for Full, Incremental, and Differential image-level backups.


Added a backup option, Automatic diagnose virtual machine on backup failure, that runs predefined tests to identify the cause of a failure during backup.
