I am on version 9 of Veeam and loving it (coming from v8)!
One thing I have noticed though is that the building VMs list has increased dramatically (maybe I just wasn't paying attention before, but nonetheless).
HyperV environment (clusters) going back to scale out file servers that serve up SMB3 shares (no SCVMM).
What is this "building VMs list" step actually doing? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I have multiple jobs that just focus on the VMs that reside on that shares CSV (volume) and at the most I am backing up 17 VMs per job. That one job with 17VMs takes almost 2 hours just to build this VMs list!!!!!!!!! (insane). And then it starts to backup the VMs..... It's crazy town
All my jobs are now using per-vm backup chains (I checked the repo and the individual files have been created). I'm not really concerned about the backup time when it is actually backing up the vms but of the time to build these lists.
I just created a support ticket but wanted to know if anyone else was experiencing these issues. From what i've read, doesn't appear to be an issue with VMware/vCenter. I'm hoping it's something dumb on my end and not a norm with hyperV in cluster not controlled by SCVMM.
