We are having issues with our Veeam B&R but have come to the conclusion that the issue is with VMware and USB Passthrough.
Currently we are using External USB 3.0 drives to accomplish these backups.
These USB drives are then transported off-site using a third-party service on a weekly basis.
The backups were working relatively well on our Server 2008 VM but with a move to a Server 2016 VM the backups are failing with numerous disk paging errors. The physical server on which the Veeam VM is hosted has not changed.
We have tried swapping out the USB drives with 6 different manufacturer's disks and each time a backup runs the backup will fail with disk paging errors and sometimes ejecting the USB disk entirely.
According to an Expert over at Expert's Exchange ESXi and USB Passthrough are known to cause the issues we are seeing.https://www.experts-exchange.com/questi ... iling.html
I've been reading on the Veeam forums that NAS devices aren't recommended by Veeam.veeam-backup-replication-f2/recommendations-for-backup-storage-backup-target-t21304.html
I don't know of another low cost portable solution other than a NAS that would work for our situation. We do not have the money to spend on an expensive solution.
Can anyone recommend a NAS or another device that could solve our off-site backup issues?
