Snapshot-jobs were configured using secondary 3PAR for snapshots too – see more information here. Management console showed the following error for snapshot-jobs: VM VM name does not meet […]

Backup from snapshot on target 3PAR

In a 3PAR Peer Persistence configuration volumes are synchronously replicated between two 3PAR arrays. For each volume one array acts as primary or source array.

This is easily possible with Veeam B&R 9.5.
