"_recent" snapshots with vSphere plugin

[ Edited ]

Hi community,

can anyone tell me how to configure generic naming in the vSphere plugin? We need it for NDMP dumps of the NFS datastore volumes.

We configured the plugin with timestamp naming for the snaps and everything works fine. But when we change the naming to "_recent" in the gui we get the following error:

[Mon Oct 22 16:54:16 2012] INFO: Logfile timestamp: 20121022165416

[Mon Oct 22 16:54:16 2012] ERROR: [scf-00157] Plugin validation for vibe failed - SNAP_TIMESTAMP_ONLY=N is set but plugin requires SNAP_TIMESTAMP_ONLY=Y

[Mon Oct 22 16:54:16 2012] ERROR: [scf-00157] Plugin validation for vibe failed, Exiting!

How can we get "_recent" snaps?

Thanks

Bruno

Any news regarding this issue?!?

There is a variable that you can tweak SNAP_TIMESTAMP_ONLY=N

Please be aware that timestamp snapshots are preferable because _recent might differ between datastores and can cause confusion.
