Using 2TB datastore with Openfiler iSCSI backup destination

Post by albertwt »

Hi All,

I'd like to use Openfiler 2.3 (as VM which is hosted on my ESXi 4) as the destination of the backup of my Windows Server 2003 VBR 5.

Does Veeam BR 5 supports other filesystem as the underlying backup files ?
or does it have to be NTFS ?

Cheers,

Albert

Hi Albert,

Yes, we do support other filesystems to store our backup files. As far as I know Openfiler is a regular Linux server with SSH and Perl, so feel free to add it to the backup console like a Linux server and use it as destination for your backups, whithout reformatting its filesystem to NTFS.

Thanks!
