VMware DataRecovery Kernel Panics

I’m currently facing an problem with my vdr that it runs into a kernel panic.

It looks like an issue with the hot add function which add’s vmdks from virtual machines.

The response from vmware was to set to parameters in the datarecovery.ini file.

Location: /var/vmware/datarecovery/datarecovery.ini

If the file doesn’t exist you can create it.

Parameters to be added to this file:


After the file is created and the parameters have been inserted the datarecovery service has to be restarted.

service datarecovery stop
service datarecovery start

I’m currently testing these settings. Keep you in the loop. 🙂
