Application-Aware Image Processing

Post by Robdigi »

I am using Veeam 6 to backup Windows 2008 R2 file servers. I initially tried to enable application-aware image processing, but I was unsuccessful in getting the jobs to run without errors. I originally didn’t think this was necessary for file servers. Since then I have read a few posts indicating that it should be used on all Windows servers regardless of the role.

My question is if I enable application-aware image processing now after running 40+ reversed incremental jobs, will I need to run a full backup job again? Will my full backup be “fixed”, and become transaction consistent via CBT?

Your existing restore points will, of course, remain intact. However, all restore points produced with the application-aware processing enabled will be transactionally consistent, even if those are incremental backups going from non-transactionally consistent full backup.
