TDP4VE adding two DM connections in vSpere Webclient

We have the following configuration.

Two VMWare datacenters
one vCenter server
Two TSM servers
Each Datacenter has to backup to its local TSM server

we have one Datamover with GUI per datacenter (with unique nodenames etc)
I installed both datamovers with the options for adding the vCenter extensions enabled.
after installation I only see one Datamover in the vCenter environment.

Does anyone know what I'm missing?


I'm not sure if I fully understood your question; You have a vCenter that contains 2 datacenters and you want each datacenter to backup to a different TSM server (using 1 datamover for each server/datacenter).
From what I understood, you log in to the TDPVmware UI and see only 1 datamover configured in your 'configuration' tab.

If that's the case, keep in mind that each TDPVmware UI (which lays on a vBS etc) is configured to only one(!) TSM server.
If you want to manage both your datamovers, in your case, you will have to set up a second vBS configured to your second TSM server.

Hope that helps,

The config is functioning as it should.
The only problem I have is with the vCenter Webclient.

I only see one connection to the first installed Datamover.
And I don't know how to add a second connection to the second Datamover.
