Is there a way to automate stopping and starting the vrops cluster? We are using NBU to backup the cluster nodes but it is taking extremely long. According to documentation we were given the cluster services need to be taken offline during the backup.

Is there a way to schedule this or automate it?

Hi,

You could run a script that stop the services before the Backup.

NBU is NetBackup??

Building off of what Luciano Patrão stated, maybe you could create a cron job to stop the vmware-casa service.

But there most be a better way to do this . Why does Netback documentation recommend doing this?  Can you maybe backup the passive node only??

Personally I wouldn't trust a Backup that says I need to stop my Cluster Services to backup.

This no way to run a backup or manage a Virtual Infraestructure.

Hello,
In the VMware documentation is says to take the cluster offline while the backup is running, then they don't provide a easy way to schedule that *smacks forehead*

One thing we are looking at is scheduling a maintenance window which will stop data collection according to VMware support but haven't tested that yet.

NBU = Netbackup
