Location of the Clone

We have started using the XSIBackup and so far, thing are looking really good!

There is one thing that I am concerned about though... My next test is on our largest host and it is connected to a SAN that is at it's storage limit. There is almost 300gb left on the SAN, however a couple of the VMs have VMDK files that are 3TB each.

My question is where do the servers/disks get cloned to? Do they get cloned directly to the backup-point location or on the same datastore that the VMDK file is on?

Thanks smile

Re: Location of the Clone

The VMs are copied, including their disks, where you point the --backup-point argument to, i.e.: /vmfs/volumes/backup
