    Totally new to Spectrum for VE, trying to figure things out here... looks a bit like the setup vSphere Data Protection which I've used some.

    Everything Spectrum for VE related is installed on one single Windows machine.

    Are all VM backups going through the Proxy? Do I need more diskspace for storing during backup or is traffic going directly to my backup server? Found a folder on my C drive during backup, C:\mnt\tsmvmbackup\fullvm\CDF_Local. Can't find in any .opt file if this is some patch I can change.

    First try after setup ends with this after a couple of minutes:

    ERROR ANS4174E Full VM backup of VMware Virtual Machine 'SERVERNAME' failed with RC=-1 mode=Incremental Forever

    Checking in VMware and Snapshot seems to have worked fine. And luckily snapshot is removed after a failure, something VDP didn't do very well.

    In the datamover error log:

    03/09/2017 12:41:54 ANS9365E VMware vStorage API error for virtual machine 'V-DA'.

    API return code 13 and API error message You do not have access... suck. To many different things can generate this error, spent quite a few hours on this one. Port 902 blocked in firewall was the problem. This one was helpful http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21662673 the others weren't.
