Case ID #01719698
I have Veeam9 and ESXi 5.1
I run backups to tape of a CIFs volumes stored on a netapp datastore.
I only run full backups on weekends, not Incremental backups.
Backups are completed succesfully.
The problem is with restore jobs.
Sometimes when I try to restore some folders from an specific date, Veeam requires 1 or more tapes that were written in other dates. For example, I try to restore a folder that were backed up in the last weekend of March; Veeam is requiring the tapes used in that weekend from March, but also requieres some tapes of the backup of January.
If backups are really full backups, I should have all my data in the tapes used in this job.
I don´t know why Veeam requires tapes from older backups.
This is a worrying situation because once Veeam requiered me a tape from a previous backup, but this tape was expired.
I´ve never have had this issue with other backup tools(for example Symantec Netbackup).
Has anyone had this problem?
Thank you for your help
