Query about snapshot limits

Post by rogerdu » Nov 22, 2016 2:50 pm

Working with Veeam 9 (latest patch) integrated with a NetApp back end for both the local backup store and VMware datastore. Every time I try to run 2 jobs concurrent (backup or replication) against the main VM datastore I get this...

2016-11-22 9:34:16 AM :: Failed to create snapshot for LUN lun_SiteA_vms Error: Clone operation failed to start: Device busy..

So... is this telling me that the NetApp is ONLY able to create one snapshot with the Veeam integration? *boggle*

Astounded and Confused

Looks like some NetApp limitation. Please contact technical support to verify.
