I am evaluating the new feature of Veeam that uses CBT to enable incremental backups. I also run a custom perl script every day that using CBT queries the amount of changes made on a particular VM.
I am wondering if this script will interfere with the Veeam operation; from what I understand every time I take a snapshot a changeId value is obtained, which will be compared later on with a snapshot reference to obtain the block changes. But what I am uncertain of is the number of valid changeId values that VMware supports.
In other words, the moment Veeam runs it probably will use a changeId that was generated a long time back (since my script keeps snapping the VM) and it might mess the backup process, maybe forcing a full backup instead of an incremental backup.
Any information is appreciated,
