Simultaneous Snapshot-Sourced Jobs

Post by yitzchok.berger » Oct 15, 2017 9:00 am

We have 2 types of jobs:

1) Storage (Netapp) integrated Snapvault (daily/multiple times per day)
2) Storage (Netapp) integrated full backup (weekly/monthly, backed up to a repository with a secondary tape job)

I noticed when the storage integrated full backup (#2) runs, it creates a new snapshot called "Veeam_" and when complete this snapshot is removed from the storage array. Is there any issue with data/vm corruption if a netapp snapshot/snapvault job (#1) runs at the same time a 'backup with storage snapshot' (#2) job runs?

Hi Yitzchok, this shouldn't incur any issues, since different storage snapshots are created for these jobs. Thanks.
