Hello everyone!

 

Just a silly question here. Look for this datastore on my lab environment:

 

As I remember this datastore is used by Veeam during the Instant VM Recovery process acording with vPower NFS right?

 

However, in this right moment I don’t have any IR job running.

Is it correct having this datastore mounted on ESXi everytime?

Yes...it is used for any vPower job (Instant VM or Disk Recovery, etc) & sometimes Veeam does not auto-remove those datastores when those jobs are finished running. You can right-click and simply unmount it and it’ll go away. I’ve actually had it auto-reappear even when no IR jobs were running. Weird, I know.

 

Cheers!

Hi Mateus!

 

As long as you don’t have any SureBackup or recovery tasks on there you’re safe to unmount it. Under that datastore view just click on the VM tab and see the status of any VMs registered with vSphere from that datastore to be safe!

These datastores are permanently mounted in my environments, too.

I kept them mounted as they did not disturb.

Thank you guys! You are awesome..

 

But I discord with @JMeixner. This datastore name, different from my standards disturbs me.

:joy:

I never saw Veeam removing these data stores automatically. you can unmount or leave it.

Haha, ok, I accepted them. :sunglasses:

And I never understood why the datastores are not simply removed after the action is completed.

same, sometimes it’s confusing for virtualization team and it’s triggering monitoring alerts
