  • 1.  How to add a new storage to VDP

    Posted Sep 05, 2014 04:04 PM

    I have a customer that currently has the VDP and it's configured to use a NFS storage as the repository for their VM backup.

    Now, they are buying a brand new NAS and want to add it to the VDP and I was wondering how can we do that.

    Any thought?

    Thank you in advanced.

    Regards

    José

    Your customer have the VDP Advanced ? If yes, if possible... if not, you will need deploy a new appliance.

    Q: Can I expand my destination datastore within VDP?

    Yes, if using VDP Advanced. If using VDP Basic and require additional space, a new VDP appliance must be deployed (up to 10 per vCenter Server). It is not possible to migrate data from the original VDP basic appliance to a new, larger appliance.
