I am deploying vSDP 6.1.1 to use to back up just a few lab vm's and when deploying i complete the import process and power on the vm.  From there i go through the setup wizard and then add my back up location. The process completes and asks me to reboot the appliance so i do so.  After it boots back up it takes me straight back to the set up wizard as if i never completed it. If i continue through the process, i get to the add the back up disks and it tells me the appliance already has them attached.  I have never seen this behavior before and was wondering what others have seen.

I know vSDP is not the best but it is free for this test lab for employees and will have a minimal work load.
