NAKIVO Backup & Replication keeps the information about the discovered infrastructure in its internal database refreshed every 1 hour by default. During the inventory refresh, the product collects all required information about the virtual infrastructure, such as a list of hosts, VMs, their power state, and so on.
You can try to manually increase the time up to 24 hours for all inventories to limit inventory refresh during your workstations shutdown state.
If there are any issues, please generate a support bundle with the option "Include the main database" and then send it to our Support Team for further investigation (https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/display/NH/Support+Bundles).
Let me know if I can help you with anything else.
Hi, I've tried these settings but it's almost worse than getting all the alert emails.
This also inhibits emails concerning "real" transporters (the ones that should be received).
Furthermore, I do not think it is possible to avoid the alert emails for unreachable worksations (there is no "error .." in the description of these errors in the log).
I think you need to create a specific configuration for the physical workstations (with dedicated configurations, alarms, emails and reports). It does not seem to me that it is normal to see all the workstations in the transporters list and at the same time also in the physical machines list and that they are contacted continuously even when they do not have a backup to perform.
For physical servers the speech could be different because it is usually expected that they are always on.
Either remotely collect it using Win SCP and edit it locally. Or use Vi. You just alter the 3 lines shown in the thread. You can do it remotely if you can ssh into box remotely (switch this on in VMWare).
@Mike Spragg can you please explain how exactly the "sshd_config" file is modified?
Is ist possible to make the changes remote? Maybe you can explain the necessary steps?
Thank you in advance!
