So I had fun the other night. I had an older Synology NAS that was on NFS4.1 that i upgraded to the latest v7 OS. However, 4.1 has been removed and reduced to 4.0 for that architecture (i’ve since seen you can bodge it in cmd line but not going there yet).
So I had to remove the NFS datastore from vcenter and remap with NFS3 and re-import the VM’s that were solely running on that storage.
So now Veeam see’s the VM’s as new ones but one is a large archive server.
Before I try to back that up, and find that it needs to backup the entire 20Tb offsite!! is there a way I can convince Veeam that this VM is the same as the one on it’s database.
Or do I not need to as it’s clever enough to realise?
