Pruning Database on linux

Post by dig1234 » Nov 08, 2018 9:43 pm

Is there a way to fix up the database if snapshots have been deleted? The windows version seems to have a "forget" option for snapshots that no longer exist.

Thanks

The database is located in /var/lib/veeam/veeam_db.sqlite. If you delete it and restart veeam service, it will be created anew. We actually plan to add some sort of watcher that would keep an eye on orphan snapshots.

Thanks!

Hi,

when will the watcher arrive?
Alternative: would it be possible to use sqliteman (or the like tools) to edit the database accordingly?

Cheers

Hi,

There is no ETA at the moment. If you have orphaned snapshots left please contact support (and post your case ID) team so they will help you.

Thanks!
