Out datated Restore Points under Backups/Disk

Post by Shaft » Sep 06, 2014 12:49 pm

I have been using Veeam B&R 7.0.0.871 in a vCenter 5.5 environment. I am still getting used to the product and I noticed today that If I go to Backup & Replication/Backups/Disks/<backupJob> it shows all my backed up VMs and the Restore Points. We have a retention of 7 days on daily backups and I noticed I have some VMs with only 1 restore point that is Months past deletion.

I tried searching but I am still getting familiar with the product and am not having any luck so I thought I would post here before calling support.

Hi Vince,

You can use any 3rd party resource provide to upload the image and then post it here. As regards your question about the restore points number, then can you tell me what backup mode you're using and what is your configured job schedule?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.
This is a backup job using reverse incremental These appear on most of my jobs but they run at different times from 5:00PM to 5:00AM daily with 7 retentions.

I will work on getting an image inserted

Vince, I believe you can contact support for assistance in clearing up obsolete records from the database.
