Hi, I have a Veeam environment based on a Backup Server in a VSphere VM (for lan-free backup) and a physical Tape Server that has FC connectivity to
an Oracle Tape Library. Veeam release is 188.8.131.522 and both Veeam Backup and Tape Server are Windows 2012 R2.
I have an Hitachi NAS and I mount its root file system (UNC Path) on the tape server with a startup script as a Network drive (H:) and all NICs are 10 Gb/s.
Then I created different file to tape backup jobs each one containing some shares, like H:\HomeUsers\*.* in a job, H:\Share1\*.* and H:\Share2\*.* in another job.
We found that this file to tape backup jobs spent very long time working on "build file tree ..." , also some hours.
There is a better way to mapping a CIFS NAS appliance in order to optimize the step of enumerating the file to backup?
I also have another question: on the properties of Media Pool I enabled the option "Enable parallel processing for jobs using this media Pool" specifying that jobs can
use 2 drives simultaneously. But it never happen also if there are free drives on the tape library. This option is intended for use only when more than a job is working on the same Media Pool, or also a single job can use more than a drive? Sorry for the stupid question but I have some experience for Veeam Backup product but I'm a newbie for its tape job management.
Thanks and regards, Antonio
