I am performing a 'full synthetic backup' to a NAS over a 1Mbps fibre optic link between two buildings - which are separated by about 200 meters.
When performing the backup I receive the error message shown below -
The vbk file in question is about 2.5 Terabytes in size and I suspect that there is a data buffering issue at hand. The last three backup attempts have all failed after approximately 10 hours, and ten minutes.
The NAS that I am using does not currently have NIC teaming enabled, and I am thinking that this feature may help resolve the issue.
I have few of questions, 1). Is it reasonable to perform this kind of backup on such a large file over a 1Mbps fibre optic link?, 2). If performing the backup on said link is reasonable what is the most likely cause of this error message?, 3). If it is not
reasonable to perform this backup over the link what settings should I be using in my backup?
Any help here will be greatly appreciated.
