FortiMail and Veeam Backup & Replication

Hello everyone,
 
I have a problem with the backup of the fortimail with veeam 9.5 u3. 
"VMDK disk is not properly aligned. Disk size is not a multiple of 1KB."
No vmware tools installed in the vm of course.
Application aware backup and vmware tools quiescence are disabled.
Is it possible to resize the main disk ?
 
Thanks in advance for all the answers.

There is NFR #0262308 raised to enable VMTools on the VM, please express your support via your Fortinet Account Team.  I am not sure if this is the only thing required to support Veeam however so this may need further investigation.

Hi!
 
I just ran into the same issue - FortiMail VM on VMWare ESXi. VMWare-Tools are not available and Veeam B&R is not able to start a backup because "VMDK disk is not properly aligned. Disk size is not a multiple of 1KB."
 
Have you been able to solve this?
 
Thank you for your help!

Hi!
 
VMWare Tools are still not available, but resizing the boot-disk with PowerCLI did it:
 
 
Get-HardDisk -vm fortimail-vm-64bit-250gb-hw7-vmxnet3 | where {$_.name -eq "Hard disk 1"} |Set-HardDisk -capacityGB 0.6
 
Backup was possible, now.
