Cause:

When a user changes ESXi hostname or IP after it being configured in Vembu BDR, there is no option in Vembu BDR console to mirror the change.

Solution:

In order to infuse the ESXi hostname/IP change, the user needs to manually alter database value. Follow the below steps in order to modify ESXi hostname/IP in VMBackup client and Vembu BDR server respectively:

VMBackup Client:

  • Stop VMBackup client.
  • Open command prompt and change directory to VMBackup client installation location using cd command.
  • By default, the installation location will be:
             <OS Installation Drive>\Program Files\Vembu\VembuVMBackup
  • Run the following command to start SQLite:
             Lib\sqlite\sqlite3.exe data\sgclient.db
  • Use following query to update ESXi hostname/IP:
             update VMWARE_SERVER_LIST set HOST_MACHINE_NAME = “New_Host_Name/IP” where HOST_MACHINE_NAME = “Old_Host_Name/IP”;
  • Start VMBackup client.

Vembu BDR Server:

  • Stop Vembu BDR server.
  • Open PostgreSQL using command prompt and type following command:
             psql -Upostgres -p 32010
  • You will be prompted to enter a password, provide it. The default password is “admin”.
  • Connect to SGDatabase using the following command:
             \c SGDatabase
  • Update the ESXi hostname/IP using below query:
             update VMWARE_SERVER_LIST set SERVER_IP='New_Host_Name/IP' where SERVER_IP='Old_Host_Name/IP';
  • Start Vembu BDR server.
