Challenge

Backup Copy Jobs can fail when writing to ExaGrid storage.

Cause

De-duplicating storage can incorrectly update existing backup files during Veeam “merge” operation.

Solution

Make sure your ExaGrid Storage firmware version is 4.7.0 P52 or newer. For additional information please contact ExaGrid Customer Support (support@exagrid.com).
