I'm having a hard time to make Veeam B&R backup to tape only the last full of any Endpoint backup.
If I check the (new in Veeam 9) "Process latest full backup chain only" option in the backup to tape job, nothing is backed up.
If I uncheck it, I get two files backed up, the same as in Veeam 8.
One file is the last backup file of the Endpoint job (the reverse incremental full file), the second file is probably built as the tape job starts.
In the joblog I see:
- Code: Select all
12-4-2016 16:37:02 :: Full backup from Backup Job NETBACKUP-012016-04-09T120547.vib (9-4-2016 00:00:00) restore point will be placed to media set
12-4-2016 16:37:02 :: New Backup Job NETBACKUP-012016-03-28T120518.vbk restore point will be placed to media set
The first file is the actual backup file, the second one is created by the tape job I think, it's gone after the tape job finishes.
I don't want two fulls on tape, especially because one is almost 2 TB and now takes 20 hours to backup (double) instead of 10 hours.
We run the latest Veeam 9 and Endpoint backup versions.
Is there a way to make this work?
