VMWare Data Recovery 1.2 issues with vSphere 4.1


I have updated my vCenter to 4.1 and my ESXi hosts to the latest 4.1 version.

I am also running the latest version of VMWare Data Recovery, that is the 1.2.

My issue is that the Data Recovery is having hard times to backup the VMs.

7/20/2010 8:33:26 PM: Normal backup using Lapa Backup
7/20/2010 8:33:31 PM: Copying 11753 - srv01.david-allonby
7/20/2010 8:34:08 PM: Performing incremental back up of disk "[LUN6-MD3000i] 11753 - srv01.david-allonby/11753 - srv01.david-allonby-flat.vmdk" using "Network"
7/20/2010 8:53:22 PM: Trouble reading files, error -3956 ( operation failed)
7/20/2010 8:53:31 PM: Task incomplete
7/20/2010 8:53:31 PM: Remaining: 5 files, 40.1 GB
7/20/2010 8:53:31 PM: Completed: 0 files, zero KB
7/20/2010 8:53:31 PM: Performance: 0.0 MB/minute
7/20/2010 8:53:31 PM: Duration: 00:20:07 (00:00:38 idle/loading/preparing)

Anyone have any ideas ?

Though I don't see an answer specifically related to your scenario I'd consult the VMware Knowledge Base and/or the VMware user community.

Fastest solution may ultimately be to open a support ticket up with VMware as I don't think you're going to find too many hosts here who are using VMware or at least in the combination of tools you are using to maintain your VMware environment.

Yea anything here related to VMware is ignored... trust me.

Any chance you have Fault Tolerance (FT) on the VM? or open snapshots? Is VMware tools installed?

I haven't used VDR...

For my backups... I have a task that snapshots all the VMs, then on the shared storage i have it take a snapshot. Back up the storage snapshot to disk and compress it.
