Novell VBK space issue

Post by herschoc » Feb 21, 2011 3:25 pm

I have a Netware server that most of the data has been moved off. Created a new Veeam job so I would get a smaller vbk file for our back up as the windows server the data was moved to is now a larger backup.

The Netware job is still the same size .vbk. Is this because veeam can not read the nss file system and does anyone know a way around this? I also purged the file retention on the server so it seems to be backing up free space. Thank You

Hello,

Please read this post, it explains why the size remains the same. To solve the case, you should run a utility which is similar to sdelete on Windows platforms (sorry, I don't know about similar utilities for Novell). You may also want to run defrag on that filesystem. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. You can not defragment a Netware server per all the articles I found. I can not find a program or utility to do anything similar to sdelete to zero the volume
