VMTools issue after K1000 upgrade
We started having backup issues after upgrading our K1000 to 8.0.3, our K2000 has no problems backing up and it's running on the same dell hardware. We use Veritas Netbackup and have had no problems since we started using both appliance 3 years ago.
Since our K2000 is running vmtools 10.1.10, tech support had us manually update our K1000 to the same version. VMtools works fine, but it would enter "not running' state after backups are finished, which causes the next day backup to fail. We then need to log into vsphere, mount the vmtools iso to the k1000 machine, log into the k1000 admin web interface and click "Check for updates" for vmtools to install to get it in a "running state". This process has to be repeated daily now since the upgrade.
There has been no changes in our VM or backup environment(we are not allowed to make critical changes due to end of the year freeze), so the ONLY factor that has changed is the K1000 upgrade. Has/is anyone else experiencing these issues? The vendor is claiming to open a ticket with Veritas. but our K2000 has no problems.
