Problem conclusion

  • IBM Spectrum Protect Plus has been improved to handle VMware
    virtual machine custom attributes. The custom attributes will be
    cataloged at backup time. And during restore to the original
    vCenter, the attributes will be set for the VM.  Restores from
    backups previous to this fix will not have custom attributes.
