So we've finally taken the bold step of migrating away from robocopy as a post-job script to Backup Copy jobs to CIFS and hit the same retention issue.
I understand that it's be design, but has anyone got a decent post-job action we can take.
From what I understand, Veeam purges all references to the previous backup chain when the media is rotated, so we can't query the database and delete items from disk.
Our design is:
1 VBR with a single dedicated CIFS NAS as the primary repository (I know it's not perfect).
2 rotatable NAS with the same IP and UNC path marked as rotatable media in Veeam.
We can't be the only people doing this, how does everyone else handle this?
