Backup NetApp snapvault snapshot to tape

Hi,

At this moment we have the following setup:

  • NetApp HQ which is used for production
  • NetApp DR which is used for disaster recovery
  • Server with Windows 2012 R2 and Backup Exec 2014

Both NetApp's are running in Cluster mode version 8.3SP2

NetApp HQ creates Snapvault snapshots which are replicated to the NetApp DR. We use Backup Exec with NDMP to backup from the NetApp DR to tape. We are running this for two weeks now and we notice that the NDMP backup is rapidly becoming larger. It looks like it is backing up al snapshots, which is not what I want.

How can I verify what exactly is backed up and make sure that only the latest snapshot is backed up?

Check the bakup job log and

Check the bakup job log and make sure that the job isn't a FULL.

you also need to make sure that backing up snapshots is actually supported within Backup Exec!
 

Thanks!
