Per VM backup repo usage

Post by law999 » Nov 06, 2017 12:15 pm

HI all,

is there a way on Veeam one where i can grab a report of how much backup space each VM is consuming?

concurrent configuration is 1 job with 30 VMs in it.

i can get a report to show how much space the overall job is using not cannot break it down to per VM.

Regards

Hi James,
If VMs backed up in one file, it`s impossible to tell exact size of VM backup as data-blocks are deduplicated among VMs in job.
However if you have per-VM backup option enabled on repository, Veeam Backup Files Growth will provide you desired data.
Thanks!

Thanks shestakov.

If we were to change the job to per vm. Would the retention for the backups be as per usual. or would there be a new active full?

The option will take effect after you perform active full.
