VBR V8 and Tape Support for placing .VRB onto Tape

Post by mpozar » Nov 10, 2014 4:59 am

Hi,
We have updated to VBR V8 GA finally from the RTM release; basically we had to backup the Configuration, delete V8 RTM and then install the V8 GA and restore the Configuration.

We are now dealing with Veeam Support in regards to an issue with the Tape backups but that is not why I posted. With the issue we are experiencing with our Tape Backup Job we have been playing with the TapeJob and we have ticked on the Option to Process Incremental Backup Files. We are using Reverse Incremental for ALL our Backups and in the past if we ticked this option the .VRB would still not be backed up.

We have just modified the Tape Backup Job with this option ticked and when we ran the Job the Logs said that there were no FULLS to process; they were processed on the previous run, but then the log is showing that it is processing INCREMENTAL backups and when we now look at the content of the Tape that is being written to, it is showing that the Tape Contains .VRB files.

Does VRB V8 now support backing up the .VRB files onto tape? When I look at the ONLINE help it still ONLY talks about .VIB files..


Have FUN!
