    Good morning / afternoon folks.

    A new implementation of DP for VE (VMware) using SP 8.1.0 at both Server & Client/TDP level.
    Vmware environemnt is at level 6.5 [ESXi & vSphere] VM Version 13

    During testing of a scheduled vm backup I am expereincing the exact same scheduler hanging symptoms & ANR failures as described in the IBM article below.

    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21988464

    According to this article the problem can affect vm's with a vmware tools level below 10.0.9 & VMware have addressed this with a fix applied at the 10.0.9 level.

    The vm I am using for testing is at the (current) level of 10272 (which equates to 10.1.0) with a status of 'running'

    https://packages.vmware.com/tools/versions

    Just wanted to touch base with the TSM/SP community here to see if anyone else has experienced this before I go to IBM with this issue?

    Thanks

    This is a known issue for Spectrum Protect DP for VE (VMWare) 8.1 within VMware environments at level 6.5.

    If ' VMMAXPARALLEL' within the Data Mover optfile is set at anything above '1' then this issue will occur.

    The issue is fixed with TDP for VE 8.1.02 which can be obtained via Fix Central.
