Current process for changing vPower NFS location

Veeam Logoby pkelly_sts » Mon Apr 28, 2014 2:19 pm

I've searched the forums & found some older posts on the above but they seem to point to registry entries that we don't have any longer although we must have on earlier versions as I once tried to change the path & couldn't get NFS working again until I changed things back to how they were at installation time.

Can someone point me to what's the current thinking/process to move this folder to another disk?

Thanks!

Paul, have you tried to edit the corresponding backup repository to change the vPowerNFS folder location?

I haven't on this occasion because previously that didn't work, but I'll try it again now in case that's been fixed in more recent versions...

Just tested it & it worked fine on 2 out of 3 hosts in a cluster so I have a different issue to look into on the one dodgy host but that's unlikely to be Veeam related.

Thanks for the simple nudge to just try it! That's the problem when you look to resolve old issues you've had mixed experience with previously :)

[MERGED] Veeam 9.x - Move vPower Location

Veeam Logoby Mike72677 » Wed Aug 31, 2016 8:20 pm

What is the best and easiest way to move the vPower from the C: drive to another drive? Only posts I can find are from 2010 and I don't have the registry key they list.

Hi Mike, you can change it in the backup repository settings. Thanks.
