Does anyone else receive legal hold type requests for existing backup sets? For instance, we had a Full exchange backup that completed a week ago. Then a couple of days ago, we had a request to hold on to that backup due to some major changes around the office (upper management replacements, etc).
This isn't something that happens with every backup or very often in general, so it's not really something that creating a backup copy job would help with (at least as far as I understand them). I opened a case with support and was told Veeam does not offer this functionality. What I ended up doing, after supports recommendation, was manually copying the backup sets to a new folder on my storage device. If they are needed, I should be able to import them through the Backup and Replication console.
I'm mainly curious if anyone else has run into this, and if you came up with a better/more efficient way to accomplish it. Personally, this would be a nice feature to have in the console...just a way to tell it to ignore the retention policy for this specific backup set, but continue with new backups as usual.
Running Veeam 9 on Server 2012 with a Dell DR6300 storage array, if it helps.
Case # 01993625, but I already closed it since I got my answer and a workaround.
