Step 5. Select Destination for Virtual Disk Updates
At the Datastore step of the wizard, you can select where to store redo logs when a VM is running from a backup. Redo logs are auxiliary files used to keep changes that take place while the restored VM run.
By default, redo logs are stored on the vPower NFS server. You can store redo logs on any datastore in the virtual environment, if necessary. Redirecting redo logs improves recovery performance but makes Storage vMotion not possible for ESXi 5.5. When the recovery job finishes, Veeam Backup & Replication deletes redo logs.
To redirect redo logs:
- Select the Redirect write cache check box.
- Click Choose and select a datastore in the list.
