not all VIBs are erased

Post by danieln » Aug 10, 2011 3:34 pm

[merged]

Hi,

I am running veeam B&R 5.0.2 against ESX4.1. Veeam server is a guest on vSphere/vCenter backing up over network.
At veeam full backup not all of the prior VIBs get erased. The behaviour is present after I switched the target from CIFS to linux target + agents.

I don't want after each full backup to go into the linux box and erase obsolete VIBs.

Any starting point on what may happen here?

Thank you,
Daniel.

Re: v5 Restore Point Bug?

HI again,

I am sorry, my problem is not related with this trail of non issue/missunderstanding on how Veeam incremental backup works.

I clearly have VIBs that remain un erased, not all of them, after a full backup.
I have : 1 restore point to keep, I know incrementals cannot be erased as they depend on fulls.
I run full on weekend, 1 restore point to keep. After a full backup, instead of having 1 VBK file, I still have some of the old VIBs still present and VIB files date time stamp updated by the backup process.

The behaviour is different (I mean it works correctly) when I back up on CIFS share.

Example of a DIR by date for one of the backups:

Veeam says 8 restore points but as anyone can see, there are far more than 8 files.

Anyone experiencing the same issue?

Thank you,
Daniel.

You definitely shouldn't have orphaned VIB files - the ones that are older than the latest VBK file (08.06.2011). Judging by Veeam backup console, those files (old VIBs) should have already been erased that is why they are not visible as restore points... Please contact our support team for further investigation.
