Arcserve host-based VMbackup too slow with NBDSSL
Posted on 2012-09-06
We have VMWare ESXi v5.x and are testing Arcserve host-based backup using D2D. It works, but the network backups and restores use NBDSSL and are too slow to be useful. 2 hours to backup a single VM (80GB of hard drives) and 3-4 hours to restore it.
Will changing from NDBSSL to NBD help this? I ran change_to_http.bat on both the D2D install and the host-based vm backup install. Both worked, but the restore still used NBDSSL. How do you force it to use NBD.
How do you speed of the processes to make the software usable?
