HCI, vinchin and snapshot

Vittore Zen Lv1Posted 16 Jan 2023 23:47

I'm testing vinchin backup solution on my HCI nodes.
I found a lot of problems about HCI snapshot and vinchin backup strategy.
Anyone that use vinchin and HCI snapshots can confirm or give me a solution?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Vittore, generally, it's not support to have a mixture of Vinchin snapshot and virtual disk based snapshot. So, you will only able to make the snapshot with Vinchin based or just purely HCI snapshot.

Is this answer helpful?

HCI is configured with snapshots every 4 hours and retains the last 6 snapshots.
vinchin is configured as default.
I have already tried to turn off speedkit, so that the snapshot will not be kept on sangfor, and there will be no snapshot conflict.

If I remove all snapshot on HCI, make vinchin backup, then all works fine. But when HCI try to make a snapshot this don't do.

If I remove all snapshot in HCI, remove host from snapshot policy, then make vinchin backup, all works fine. But I I try to add host to HCI snapshot policy I get this error:
