I have a NetApp FAS2020A (with 2 controllers). It is setup with a VIF in both controllers, and 2 IP directions in each VIF (principal one and an alias). This is running in a vSphere 5.1 environment, with VMware vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 (vCSA). I'm only using NFS protocol to export Datasotores to VMware. I have 4 NFS DataStores, and each Datastore is mounted in the ESXi servers using a different IP address (remember that I have 4 IPs: 1 for each VIF, and one alias for each VIF).
I have problem with VCS "Backup and Restore" Function. When I try to create a new Backup Job, in the "Virtual Entities" section, and I have to choose which will be in the backup, not all of them are shown. Only the ones that are mounted with the "principal" IP address of each VIF are eligible (check Storage Details - NAS.png attachment). But If I go to "Monitoring and Host Configuration > Storage Detail - NAS", I can see all of them (check New Backup.png attachmnet).
Also, In the past I did not have this problem. I think that it begun when I upgraded from VCS 4.0 to 4.1, but I'm not sure.
The VSC 4.1P1 release was published today (which includes the previously referenced D release and a few other fixes).
