VMWare VCB from iscsi san very slow
Posted on 2009-05-03
Having an issue backing up full vms in the following environment:
ESX 3.5,VC2.5 Backup Exec 11d
Proxy Server- Dell workstation with W2k3
iSCSI San- Dell CX3-10
Full vms copy very slowly to the proxy when using the 'san' method- a 10 GB vm taking over 2 hours. When I run the backup using the 'nbd' option it copies within 1/2 hour. I'd be grateful for any thoughts on what might be the cause?
