After V11 upgrade .vbk files in different path

Post by darecki »

Hi Everyone,

I run scripted VeeamZIP. Till last update to v11 each run dumped vbk files in folder specified in repository setup. However, from V11 it does create folders per VeeamZIP backup and then dumps single vbk file in it.

Is there any way to reverse this change to continue with vbk files stored in single folder?

Regards,

Hello,
I see what you mean... could the -Folder parameter maybe solve your issue? That one dumps it directly into the specified folder

Best regards,
Hannes

Can you post the actual script, so we can verify the code? Thanks!

Hi Darek,

This change is related rather to VeeamZIP core logic than to powershell api itself. Anyway, the main reason behind it is that in v11 we allowed offloading VeeamZIP backups to SOBR's capacity tier. In this case VBR generates metadata on a performance extent for each VeeamZIP backup. So, the problem was that if many VeeamZIP backups are offloaded, numerous meta files stored together in a performance extent's root directory would create a mess. Thus, it was decided to
put it in order a bit.

Thanks,
Oleg

Thanks Oleg,

We dump it onto ZFS and run python script with some logic - find all files, extract date, couple them by object name, find if is more than two and in that case delete oldest but only if size varies by less than 20% and files are older than two weeks. This was easy in single folder, now we need to rewrite script or reverse change. BTW - did you publish this change in release notes? I didn't find it anywhere.

Cheers,

Usually, we publish major changes there or in a what's new section. This case should have made it to the guide, though. I asked internally to add the information on that in VeeamZIP chapter. Thanks!
