That's great, but really I think you should also ensure that the job status reports also reflect that the job status is not "success" too.

Thanks

Just upgraded to Backup and Replication 9. Very happy to see "warnings" about independent disks. This was setup by someone else and I thought that we were getting full backups.

I think v9 is still behaving the same where the original backup will give the alert for the independent disk then every other backup display successful. I too think this behavior is dangerous. Where is Veeam flagging this independent disk warning? Is this something I could pull into my own reporting to show backed up vm's with independent disks?

Brad, as was stated above, you can check VM Configuration Assessment report to check VMs with independent disks.
Thanks!

Thanks for your response, but we don't use Veeam one. The status of the disk is tracked some place that VeeamOne can provide the information. If someone know where that is I can pull it to use in our own reporting.

Brad, the mentioned report is a part of Veeam ONE free edition so you pull it from there.

Hi,

is this going to be "fixed" soon now?

I totally understand both sites thoughts but in the end i think there should be a warning, at least some kind of option to enable or disable it so that both sites are happy with it.

But i also think the default option should enable warnings for EVERY job that was running and not only the first/last fullbackup!

Main Question regarding this toppic:

I had a server that was backuped with one independet disk. Now i changed this disk to non-independent. Do i have to run a fullbackup now or is incremental also fine?

You do not need to run a full backup, this disk will be entirely backed up during the next incremental job run.

[MERGED] Just one warning because of independent disk

Veeam Logoby pronto » Tue Oct 18, 2016 9:06 am

Hi Community,

we launched our Veeam B&R Setup these days and received a warning while replication of a guest system with one independent disk. So far so good but what surprised us is that we get this warning only once. The second replication, as well as the following, were performed without warning. Is this by design or can we configure this behavior. It can happen that we do not notice the first warning and the next jobs will not be further warned...

Thx & Bye Tom

Hi Tom, the behavior is expected, please review this thread for considerations behind it.

Hi Foggy,

Ok, I've understood that this behavior remains as it is, but I agree with the critical voices and wish it would be user configurable.

Thx & Bye Tom
