[VMware] import VDP 6.1.x error ‘The OVF package is signed with an invalid certificate ( 簽署 OVF 套件所用的憑證無效 )

在滙入 vDP 6.1.4時發生如下畫面錯誤訊息 " The OVF package is signed with an invalid certificate ( 簽署 OVF 套件所用的憑證無效 ) "

試解無效:

1.匯入"Publisher EMC Corporation"提供憑證也無解

2.匯入vCenter提供也是不行.

尋求Google大神總結有三個方式

Method#1. 改用 HTML5方式來匯入是最快方式

Method#2. 用7-zip 打開 .ova刪除裡頭的 .mf檔案

Method#3. 利用 ovftool工具轉換 , 載點
ovftool.exe –skipManifestCheck c:\tmp\vSphereDataProtection-6.1.5.ova c:\vdpfix.ova

[VERITAS] Backup Exec 15 到期備份集不會自動刪除?

客戶反應在升級Backup Exec 15前的備份集在"儲存"保留時間設定更短但就是不會自動刪除,
就請她檢查DLM (Data Lifecycle Management)的值"CheckReclaimSpaceIntervalMinutes“是否被停用(十進位:0) ,果真在之前曾被停用請她改回(十進位:60)即可正常的判別自動刪除到期的資料。

Solution:
step01. regedit.exe (以系統管理員身份執行)

step02.
HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Symantec\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\Server\
CheckReclaimSpaceIntervalMinutes

step03.
啟用"CheckReclaimSpaceIntervalMinutes (十進位:60)" // 預設是啟用

step04.
Restart BE all service.

Done.

[VMware] VDP change backup transport method

VDP預設 transport method優先順序是先採用 1.Hot-Add 接著是 2.NBDSSL ,其次是 3.NBD

~Solution~

step01. vi /usr/local/avamarclient/var/avvcbimage.cmd

step02. add as below , 利用":"來區隔開
————————————————–
–transport=hotadd:nbd:nbdssl
————————————————–

step03. restart service
service avagent restart // VDP 5.x
service avagent-vmware restart  // VDP 6.x
