Hi,

We've made several improvements in latest update and it seems to be working pretty good. Of course, if you want to ignore the warnings completely or change the threshold, you can use the regkeys described in this thread

[MERGED] Veeam Endpoint warning due to low disk space

Veeam Logoby ChrisGundryCEGA » Fri Apr 08, 2016 7:52 am

Hi,

We have a datastore that is low on disk space at 7%. We have adjusted our Veeam B&R console to warn at 6% and error at 4%. This is actually quite a lot of space still available because the datastore is very large.

The issue we have is that we have a number of Veeam Endpoint jobs that backup to this same datastore/volume and they are alerting every time they run due to the low disk space. They do not seem to use the B&R thresholds and have no settings to adjust in the VEB GUI to change this behavior.

Can someone advise?

Thanks

Hi Chris,

Indeed, VBR settings do not propagate to the VEB. You can use a special regkey described in this thread to adjust the threshold. kindly, review this thread and let us know if it helps. Cheers!

Hi Reklov,

No changes here, but the described regkey for setting the custom free space threshold is still valid.

This still hasn't been addressed in the Windows 2.0 Agent. Any chance it will be settable in the GUI sometime soon?

Hi Phil,

To clarify, you would like this option to be customizable via UI, correct?

Correct. It would useful to be able to completely turn off that warning as well. We store our Windows Agent backups on a B&R repository and that has its low space alerting handled by Veeam One.

is there any solutions available right now to disable the "backup repo space low warning" in veeam agent now? -> percentage regkey = 0??? a few posts back there was a reference to the other thread about setting the warning for the local (source) volumes... but that does not affect what we want here...

Hello Stephan,

Can you please elaborate why this registry hack does not work in your case? Thanks in advance.

the "DisableVolumeFreeSpaceCheckWarning" regkey disables warning for source volume freespace warnings, isn't it?

and the "BackupRepositoryFreeSpaceThresholdPercent" regkey sets only the percentage of free space, whats a couple of times mentioned in this thread here isn't the very best option when having huge backup repositorys, since 1% can be a couple of TB! so my question was if its possible to set this key to 0% and disable the warning with it completely?

Hello,

Sorry for the delay. Zero value should work, please double check how it works in your case and let me know if the issue persists. Thank you in advance.
