Hi, could anyone clarify the below?
Is the “Journal Size Hard Limit” setting, per VM
i.e. if set to 200GB, this is how large the journal can grow for a single server within a VPG
Does this setting relate to all VM’s within in the VPG, i.e. if set to 200GB, this is how large the journal can grow for all VM’s within a VPG
This is Vladimir M from Zerto Support.
That setting is set for all the VMs within the VPG. If you want to set the different settings for individual VMs with the VPG, you can make the edit within the “Advanced VM Replication Setting” ( edit VPG-> go to Replication tab-> go to VM Setting and made the edits for the individual VM there.
Thanks for the quick reply, if i change the default from 200GB to 250GB, from the pop menu it states this will only effect new VM’s added to the VPG after the change, this is my confusion, can you explain? – thanks
By doing the default edit yes it will only affect new add VMs within the VPG. If you have VMs already protected in the VPG, you’ll need to make the edit for those VMs within the Advance settings.
Thanks Vladimir, got it , cheers
Apologizes, one last question from your above comment “That setting is set for all the VMs within the VPG. ” just to confirm, if the default setting was 200GB, the total growth for all VM’s is 200GB or is that setting for each VM’s journal can grow to 200GB
It is set for each VM’s journal to grow that size
