Disabling Changed Block Tracking

By default, Changed Block Tracking (CBT) is used for backups using the Virtual Server Agent. For virtual machines where there is a known issue , you can turn off CBT to run backups using Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) instead.

To disable Changed Block Tracking for a subclient:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers > virtualization_client > Virtual Server > VMware > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the subclient and select Properties.
  3. Click the Backup Options tab.
  4. On the Backup Options tab, clear the Use Changed Block Tracking option.
    • When the Use Changed Block Tracking option is selected, CBT is enabled and used for backups where it was not already specified. The vsbkp log indicates that CBT is used.
    • When the Use Changed Block Tracking option is cleared, CBT is not enabled, and CRC is used for backups. The vsbkp log indicates that CRC is used.
  5. Click OK.
