Hello There, This is my first Post to Experts Exchange.
We are trying to find a solution to backup virtual machine disk images to a physical disk array on our physical vCentre Management Server over the FC SAN.
We have vSphere 4.0 Essentials Plus, with 1 physical management server and 3 host servers. We have installed a HBA card in the management server to allow us to backup VM disk images from our SAN to a disk array on our management server and then to Tape.
When we perform the VDR backup, it seems that the data is being transfered over the 10/100 lan switch rather than via the fc SAN switch and therefore the data transfer is extremely slow.
We have had our vendor scratch their heads at this for several days and wondered if anyone could offer any suggestions to this issue.
