Any update on this issue? We are having the same issues with Veeam and a DR4100. Strange .... it just started about 2 weeks ago.

I am experiecing the same issue but i have a dell dr4000 unit as a backup repository
For around a year backups were running fine (active fulls) at full speed I have a 10gb/s dedicated san and dr4000 switch , however when it did the full once a week it took so long but never ever timed out
However since an upgrade to veeam 8 i reverted to forever forward incrementals and setup 7 restores points. its when the merges started happening on 2 of my backup jobs i decided to give support a call
After 2 weeks of rulling out hardware / dr4000 / network as the cause of the issues , i was told to use a Linux Server with nfs mounts but this got so messy as its a workaround and then i had meta-data ram issues i believe

so im back to cifs shares more backup jobs with less VM's i do still get a timeout on one of my backup jobs and have been advised to throttle the backup speeds , but when when full backups for over a year never timed out - surely its a bug in the veeam 8 merge process or a CIFS Timeout issus which ill set now

Hi case id was 00980402

the way i have worked around this is create a lot more backup jobs that run once the previous one has finished.
I still have one job that failes during the merge, but on the retry it just works and complete the previous failed merge

Glad that you've managed to find the workaround for this. According to forums search CIFS repositories may experience these kind of issues (due to much traffic or high I/O load), so it's better to use Windows/Linux repositories instead.
