Hyper-V Backup write on tape: file readonly mode

Veeam Logoby cobra » Fri Sep 04, 2015 1:54 pm

Hello,

with veeam I backup some VMs on a NAS into a folder "VeeamBackup".

Then I want to write this folder "VeeamBackup" on a tape. All other files, I can write without an error on the tape.

The "VeeamBackup" folder gives this error back:

Task \\COBRA-nas01\Backup\VeeamBackup completed with warning. Details: Access is denied. Failed to open file [\\COBRA-nas01\Backup\VeeamBackup] in readonly mode.

When I see the permissions on Windows, the folder is Read only.

What can I do?

How can I write the VMs on the tape?

I need one job for this, normal files and the VMs.

Thank you.

Greetings

Hello,
Do you use backup to tape or file to tape job?
Have you tried to choose "jobs", instead of "repositories" as a source for the tape job?
I would also suggest to contact Veeam support team as required when posting about technical errors.
Thanks!

Hello,

I use File to tape and select the folder with the VM Backup files inside.

Can I write files and the VM job on one tape?

Yes you can. However the job will copy the whole folder every time if you choose it as a source.
And the reason of the error in your first post is probably that there is some recent activity blocking files of the folder(like a file is being copied).
Try to start the job after all such activities are done. Thanks!

You can probably write a PS script and set it as pre-job activity. The script will make use of custom PS function called Test-Lock and proceeds to job execution in case none of the files is locked. Thanks.
