Change Path of SMB Share after fileserver migration

Post by dasfliege »

I've migrated a few volumes from one NAS storage to a new one. FQDN and IP of the storage has changed and therefor i am not able to reach the shares anymore that are configured in veeam. The data in the shares has not changed since the migration, so i don't really want to take fresh backups of all the shares. I've searched for a way to just change the path to the share that the object in veeam is referencing to, but that is grayed out. There also doesn't seem to exist any PS commands to achive this. I know that i would be able to change it directly in the Hosts table in the DB, but i don't really want to do that if it is not supported.

Anyone did this before?

Hi dasfliege,

From the top of my head it should be possible to re-add file shares to the Veeam B&R console over new IP address/host name, configure new job and map excising backup via 'map backup' functionality in the wizard.

I would be shocked if veeam would recognize that the data inside the newely created share matches the existing data in the backupfile and maps it to that data. But i will give it a try.

As expected, this didn't worked. All data has been read and written again.
