Back up a CIFS Share

Post by kins » Aug 22, 2011 8:06 am

Hi,

We have several sites where they have a CIFS share sitting on a VNX SAN. How would you go about backing up the CIFS share on the SAN using Veeam?

cheers

Hello David,

Veeam is a VM-image backup solution, you cannot backup regular data sitting on NTFS volumes, however, you can use a File Copy job to copy data from these CIFS shares.

Thanks.

Philip, the process should be straight forward. If your file copy job stuck, then it's better to show its debug log to our support team for investigation.

Whats the correct way to Backup the Cifs from the Storage.

Network Map (windows Server) on the Backup Server and a File Copy Job.

Yep, you can map existing CIFS share to a backup server and specify it later as a source for file copy job. Thanks.
