Requirements

Before installing Dell PowerStore Plug-In v2.0.5, ensure that you are running Veeam Backup & Replication 12 or higher. To check the version, open the Main Menu (≡) in the Veeam Backup & Replication Console and select Help > About.

Dell PowerStore Plug-In v2.0.5 supports integration with the following storage systems:

  • PowerStore T series (PowerStore OS 3.x)
  • PowerStore X series (PowerStore OS 3.x)

What's New

  • Added support for PowerStore OS 3.6
  • Support for the new version of Universal Storage API v2 that enables Snapshot replication orchestration allowing backup jobs to leverage existing Dell PowerStore Native Asynchronous Replication relationships to create storage-based snapshot replicas as additional restore points. This also enables performing backup from secondary storage arrays, to avoid any load from backup activities on the primary storage array.

Known Issues

The following is a list of known major issues for Dell PowerStore Plug-In for Veeam Backup & Replication.

  • The Dell PowerStore Plug-In v2.0.5 does not support integration with Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. For Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows storage integration, use Dell PowerStore Plug-In v1.0.50.
  • The Dell PowerStore Plug-In does not support Metro Node or Metro Volume replication.
  • Backup and snapshot-only jobs using Native Asynchronous Replication will fail if a Metro Node or Metro Volume relationship is configured on the array.
  • Volume Groups snapshot transfer may fail if the time between the Dell PowerStore arrays is not synchronized (time mismatch is more than 10 seconds). Time must also be synchronized with the Veeam Backup Server for the integration to work correctly.
  • Snapshot creation may fail if the account assigned to run the Veeam Backup & Replication services uses a non-colon time delimiter.
  • If the volume is part of a replication policy, snapshots created by Veeam Backup & Replication jobs that do not use Native Asynchronous Replication as a secondary target are transferred to a target array according to the storage schedule. However, these snapshots are not automatically deleted from the target array and should be manually cleaned up. This behavior does not apply to auxiliary snapshots created during backup jobs; they are automatically deleted from the target 24 hours after creation, provided they are replicated.
