Verifying the operational status of vSphere Storage APIs for Data Protection (VADP) based backup solution validates the correct configuration.

Expected Outcome

You can confirm that a backup of the Management cluster has occurred in the past 24 hours.

Procedure

  • Verify that the VADP-based backup solution is registered with the Management vCenter Server.
  • Verify that all the services are correctly running on the storage solution.
  • Verify that any proxies that have been deployed from the VADP-based backup solution are registered and running.
  • Verify that sufficient space has been allocated for the Management cluster applications.

    Consult the sizing guide for an estimate on the initial deployment size of the validated design.

  • Verify that the VADP-based backup solution has successfully taken backups of the Management cluster in the past 24 hours.
