[Feature Request] - Synthetic Full for NTX AHV Backups

Post by Mildur »

It would be nice, if Nutanix AHV VMImage backup jobs will be able to leverage Synthetic Full too.
Please add this feature, so that every veeam product is similar in backup modes :-)

We want to be able to use the new Hardened Backup Repo without active Full Jobs. And fast and spaceless Synthetic Fulls on a xfs repository have some advantages too. Until the feature is released, I can life with AHV backup copys to a linux hardened repo.

Yes synthetic fulls for AHV is a frequent request from our field as well and is certainly on our PM team's radar.

Please note that the new hardened Linux repo does not yet support AHV backups. AHV backup copies are fine as you note however...

My mistake I didn't scroll down far enough on -https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... ml?ver=110 to see that AHV backups are supported on the new hardened Linux repository...

Thank you Ronn. As long we are not doing active fulls, the immutable flag will not be used. But backup can be target to the hardened Repo :)

Hopefully, synthetic full will make it to version 3.0

ANY image-level backup is supported.
