we use the nfs shares of a VTL Fujitsu Eternus CS as a backup repository.
With the repository parameters, configured in the Fujitsu Eternus CS, we manage when a backup file will be moved to a physical Tape. When this happend only a meta file remains in the nfs filesystem. We use this for monthly and weekly Copy jobs.
If we want to restore the file ( per VEEAM ) it will be reloaded from tapes.
We have a big problem with copy jobs : when a retention period expires, the copy job 'looks' inside the backup file, but this means that the file will be restored from the tapes... and then delete the file. We thought that the file will be just deleted....
That that takes a very long time for our VM's !
We use the parameter : 'Use per-VM backup files' in our repositories.
The VEEAM Support told me that this is a 'feature' for future use and can't be switched off.
Does anybody use a VTL as a backup repository and had the same problems ?
