Due to NFS implementation specifics on certain NFS storage, backup job may fail with "rollback file deletion errors".

If you are experiencing this issue, here is the registry mod enabling jobs to ignore this error.
Certain NFS implementations specifics on certain NFS storage can generate noisy errors, when there isn't a problem. In this case, backups and replicas are crated successfully, and the retention policy is being followed correctly, but a "rollback file deletion error" is generated regardless.
