V-79-8192-38330 - The virtual machine has independent disks. The disks that are configured in an independent-persistent mode or independent-nonpersistent mode will not be backed up.

I dont want to back up the independent disks but it seems I have no choice durring the selection list creation.

Does anyone know how to ignore this error state so my backup jobs dont show as failed??

Thanks!

create a seperate job abd exclude the disks you don't want to backup, and or are failing.

I wish I could do exactly that. Using the Virtual Infrastructure Agent it will not allow me to de-select any volumes.

Sadly i don't think any backup product can backup disks that are configured in an independent-persistent mode or independent-nonpersistent mode.
we have the same issue with commvault simpana 9.

try veeam backup and replication.trial edition

I actually do not mean to back up the independent disk. I do NOT want to backup the independent disk. I want Symantec to ignore it, but it refuses. Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 sees the independent disk, cant back it up and then fails the job. I only want Symantec to ignore the independent disk and pass the job with success.

I'm thinking it can not be done...

Sadly, symantec will say failed as opposed to sucessful with failed objects like commvault.

You can either deselect that vm althogether, that way you don't get the error message.

right now the vmware vsphere/center api doesn't allow explicit volume backing. meaning even if you select a disk from a vm, it'll attempt to snapshot the entire vm [even with independent-persistent mode or independent-nonpersistent mode disks], and attempt to backup all disks, and it fails.

i hope i made some sense there. else u can create a seperate job jusy for this vm/disk. but will still come as a failed backup job! cheers
