ReFS repo supported?

Veeam Logoby JWester » Mon Jun 19, 2017 7:48 am

Hi,
are the ReFS features for fast synthetic full backup supported with the Linux client?
I have a disk with 5 TB of data to backup - after the number of restore points are reached the "Performing full backup file merge" run takes days. :-/
Many thanks

Are you backing up via VBR repository or directly to the volume?

via VBR server where I could connect a Windows server with ReFS as a repository. Currently it's a Linux repo with ZFS (and Ceph in the backend).

Workaround question: Is it possible to trigger a full backup instead of forever incremental backups?

Hi,

Yes, ReFS is supported in this case.

Currently there is no standalone full in VAL. Intermediate full is on our roadmap of vNext features though.

Thank you.

Hi,
ReFS even with fast clone? Because in the known issues you write:
Fast clone is not supported for ReFS repositories
Thank you.
