vhd online Backup - Backup time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    When i start a backup using child partion snapshot  the Backup to tape is fast but the time until the Tape is in the drive takes a long time (a half hour). The VHD i backup is 10GB big.

    Why it takes a long time until the tape is in the drive? is it really the time for the snapshot? When i backup using saved state it dont take long time until the tape is in the drive.

    Can you help me or is this normal?

  • Hi Marty,

    You are doing short term to tape I guess?

    In short what you are saying it takes ~30 minutes to take a snapshot and DPM continues... moving the tape etc..
    Are you using hardware VSS provider? Which vendor and storage model?
    I have seen hw VSS providers taking this long because enumerated the entire SAN first but that is a while ago and should be meanwhile fixed.

    If hw VSS provider is used I recommend to take this up with the vendor.
