I am trying to copy a vmdk file to my datastore.
The file is 50 GB in size.
I am running ESXi 4.0.
The server has 3 VMS running at the moment. They are not doing that much work at the moment though.
I am using the File Copy process built into Veeam Backup & Replication.
The 50 GB file is on the C: drive of a Windows 2008 server.
So, I am coping it from that servers C: drive to the datastore located on a esxi host server.
If, I copy this file from one windows server to another windows server on the network it takes about 10 minutes.
Right now the file has been coping to the datastore for 2 hours and is 10 % completed. The transfer speed is 692 KB/s.
Is this the normal?
