    What is lvtrTreeFixup?

    Howdy, Can anyone tell me what the following lines mean? I see these in logs from some backups, but not others. We are using Retrospect multiserver V15 for Windows [*] 3/27/2018 9:39:11 AM: lvtrTreeFixup [*] 3/27/2018 9:39:11 AM: lvtrTreeFixup: TExclude [*] 3/27/2018 9:44:20 AM: lvtrTreeFixup: TSetFlagsFromRsrc T_IGNOREMISCOMPARE [*] 3/27/2018 9:47:26 AM: lvtrTreeFixup: Finished Also this [*] 3/27/2018 6:03:04 AM: lvtrRescan: FSSGetChangeTree [*] 3/27/2018 6:03:08 AM: lvtrRescan: TAppendCB [*] 3/27/2018 6:07:33 AM: lvtrRescan: T1CompareCB [*] 3/27/2018 6:11:11 AM: lvtrRescan: T1Compare [*] 3/27/2018 6:11:11 AM: lvtrRescan: TMatchRemove [*] 3/27/2018 6:11:11 AM: lvtrRescan: FSSSetChangeTree [*] 3/27/2018 6:11:13 AM: lvtrRescan: FSSSetChangeTree Finished Thanks Jeff

    only scan specific folders

    I discovered the Isilon uses ifs, a proprietary distributed filesystem. It presents an smb filesystem to Windows clients.

    only scan specific folders

    Thanks for the information. The NAS is being mounted as a Shared Volume, not from a sharepoint server. It is my understanding that the source system needs to have the instant scan client (part of the retrospect client) installed and running to work. Instant scan keeps track of file changes locally, then tells retrospect what needs to be backed up. Unfortunately, there is no client for our Isilon NAS. My best bet is implementing Lennart_T's approach, but this will require convincing the powers-that-be to change a well estcabilished policy/workflow.

    only scan specific folders

    Howdy, I am running Retrospect Multi Server 12.6.1.101 on Windows Server 2012R2 running on a 6 core - 16GB VM. . We are backing up data from a large NAS. On an existing share point, We would like to backup certain folders to their own backup sets (sue to size) and allow smaller folders to backup to a single backup set. For example Folder 1 ~10TB, Folder 2 ~10TB, Folder 3 <1TB, Folder 4 ~500GB I can create scripts to backup Folder1 and Folder 2. Folder 3 and Folder 4 can be backed up with a single script, but when a short term project comes up a new folder is created (Folder 5), I need to be sure Folder 5 is backed up with no intervention. These short term projects are from 1 month to 1 year in length. It appears that Retrospect scans the complete volume before processing the exclusions. So, If I select the volume to backup, retrospect will scan the + 20TB of files in the folders being backed up independently of the volume, extending the scan time to over 18 hours, to backup the remaining small folders. The number of large ~10TB + will be increasing soon, causing the small folder backups to take more than 24 hours. Is there any way to have retrospect omit folders from a scan? Or have retrospect scan the NAS faster? Thanks Jeff Polasek Sr IT Pro I College of Engineering - Texas A&M University
  5. Howdy, Is there any way to setup multiple backup streams from a single Volume? We are consolidating Departmental Data from individual servers to a College NAS. I have setup subvolumes from the NAS. But I can only backup one sub volume at a time. If it is not possible to backup multiple sub volumes at the same time, any tips on increasing individual backup speed would be appreciated. Thanks Jeff Polasek Sr IT Pro II College of Engineering Texas A&M University
  6. Howdy, We are using the latest version of Retrospect multiserver 8.1 running on windows 2008R2 server with 57TB of RAID-6 backup storage mounted as a single volume for backup storage area. We are starting to backup large amount of data (folders containing < 2TB) to disk backup sets. I have not been able to find information on the best way to setup the disk backup set members for large amounts of data. Is it better to create multiple smaller (1TB) members or one huge (3TB to 4TB) member? Does the member size affect restore or grooming times? We plan to do one full backup and then do incremental backups and use grooming of the Disk Sets to keep the size manageable. Has anyone else done this?
