Running out of space with scale-out-repos

Post by oli4 » Oct 03, 2016 9:10 am

Hello all

we are using Veeam v9 with scale-out-repos and per VM chain backups. We do incremental backups with a monthly active full.
We are now in a situation where we have a scale-out-repo with several extends that are used only half and one extend that is completely full (space < 20 GB), so the next backup cycle will probably fill
the extend completely and the backups will fail.

What can we do to prevent this happen? Can we move a VM backup chain to another extend?

The job shouldn't fail during the next cycle, but should place files on another extent with space available.
