  • hp data protector on esx vm fload a partition

    Hello,
    I am not familiar with DataProtector.
    I have been asked to perform some installation on Server 2003 virtual machine on ESX3.5 (one 10GB partition). When loged in I found Low diskspace (80MB free).
    10GB is absolutely fine for the task the server performs. When I started to troubleshoot disk space problem, I found:
    that "enhincrdb" folder properties in
    C:\Program Files\OmniBack\enhincrdb\

    shows: Size 1,2GB and Size on disk 5,2GB

    There are folders with hexa names full of less than 1KB files. I checked the cluster size on virtual machine - 4KB(default NTFS).
    So it's explain Size on disk 5,2GB.
    I don't no why "enhincrdb" has 1,2GB and grows.

    I need to know what to do.
    What should be done in order to prevent agent grow.

    Thanks,
    Michael.

    Hi Michael

    Looks like you have DP's Enhanced Incremental Backup option enabled. Is there any specific reason you are running this option?

    There has been a little bit of talk around the web from people who are not impressed with the additional disk space it requires to run this feature, if you do not actually need it, turn it off.

    Regards

    Mat

      Mat,
      I started the thread by "I am not familiar with DataProtector"
      See it again.
      So I cannot answer your question.
      At least your answer points me that it's not VMWare related issue.
      Because the behaviour of DP is really strange.

      Thx.
      Michael.
