  • Livesync VMware, Second VM Folder Created In Datastore
    Posted: 01-31-2019, 1:49 PM


    I just recently started using Livesync for some of our VMware VMs to assist in VM migration to a new datacenter. I have noticed that the VMs that are being LiveSync'd have a second folder created in the VMware datastore. The second folder has a "_1" appended to it.


    For example, I have VM ServerA located on a datastore in folder ServerA. After the LiveSync is setup and server has been sync'd, a second folder shows up in the datastore called ServerA_1.

    Is it safe to remove the ServerA_1 folder?

    Eventually the VM at the sync'd location will become production. Could I delete the ServerA_1 folder without affecting the VM?



    VCenter 6.5

    Commvault 11 SP13+


    Thanks in advance,

    Both the original VM and the location where it is being Sync'd to are on vCenter 6.5?

    The original VM and sync'd VM are on different Vcenters.

    Original VM on VCenter 5.5.

    Sync'd VM on VCenter 6.5.
