Good morning; I have been having some problems with our current setup, I'm ok with smashing my hardware and starting over, but I want something I know will work! I am having issues with a backup copy job moving our backups off-site to another location.
We have Veeam installed on a server in our primary data center, this server has 64TB, and all our primary backups are stored here. We have a backup copy job that pushes backups off-site over a VPN to Synology DS416play. At first, we set this up as an NFS share connected to a repository on the Veeam server; doing it, this was very slow, and backups failed. Then we changed this to an SMB share connected to a repository on the Veeam server; again, this was slow, and jobs would never finish.
Then we created a LUN and attached the Veeam server with ISCSI creating a drive letter and pointing the repository to this. The ISCSI method increased the speed jobs were flying and working! But over time, we started getting "Stg.CheckMetadataCorrupt" errors? Doing an Active Full would resolve this, but only a few days or weeks; this has become a maintenance nightmare!
Before moving to the Synology, we had a large USB HD connected to a windows ten box; this worked for years and worked well, but I never liked the thought of a single drive and the limited space. We had the Synology DS416play sitting around, so we deployed it thinking this would give us some redundancy and more space.
My goal is to develop a better solution; maybe this problem is linked to the DS416play or how we are setting this up? Maybe Veeam? I know it's not the WAN; we used a slow POS USB drive for years and never had a problem. Is there another lower-cost storage appliance with a Veeam integration that would be better for what I am trying to do?
