  • Archiving UNC path from Windows Server? Not Applicable?
    Posted: 08-18-2016, 3:38 AM


    We're just installed CV on our environment and we are currently testing out archiving.

    Archiving works really good on the local Windows Server 2012 but not when trying to archive files from a UNC path. The permissions should not be a problem since i use my own account for testing purpose.

    I get the following message when the job is done:

    Archive job [8172] completed. Client [cv-win2012r2], Agent Type [Windows File System], Subclient [ArchiveTest], Archived [Not Applicable], Failed [0], Duration [00:00:53], Total Size [Not Applicable], Media or Mount Path Used [[BACKUPSERVER] F:\MP_Disklib\MP2].

    Is this type of archiving not supported? Should i use the built-in NetApp client since we are using NetApp storage?

    Kind regards,

    Yes, OnePass for NetApp must be used.

    See and

    What Is Archived

    • Local Volumes
    • Local Files and Folders
    • Mount points to volumes
    • Windows 8/ Windows 2012 on ReFS volumes
    • Non-deduplicated data that resides on a Windows deduped volume
    • Compressed Files
    • Microsoft Non-Content Indexed and Content Indexed files
    • Data that resides on Cluster Shared Volume File System for Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 computers.

      Recursive Scan method is used to back up and archive the data on the Cluster Shared Volume File System.
