[MERGED] WORM Backup on tape

Post by uebektas » Nov 13, 2017 12:14 pm


we have a problem with our Backup to WORM tapes.

If i have a worm tape with 800GB, the first backup runs without problems and he writes 500GB on the tape. At the second backup he cannot write on the rest of 300GB on the worm tape.

i contacted the veeam support and he said that is actually not supported. i think its a fuction that veeam must have or have someone an other solution for this problem ?

+1 for WORM support.

Was a bit surprised / shocked that Veeam does not support it yet.
The first request in this thread is 4 years old in two weeks. LTO Support without WORM - that's not really Enterprise!

We need it for archival compliance reasons. Software “read only” protection will not solve this btw.
