Issue



Duplicate Job and Verify Job template within a policy may conflict while running backup of VMware resources targeted to a Dee-Duplication Storage.

In a Policy based job if the resource being backed up is VMware which is targeted to the De-Duplication storage and template to run verify and duplicate with the rule set to  “Run as per the rules of the template” is selected the duplicate or the verify job might fail.

Error



While creating the Policy we might get a message stating.

The "Verify after backup" option is selected for this backup template. Because the template is targeted to a deduplication storage folder on the media server, the "Verify after backup" option can affect backup performance.

The "Verify VM Server system state weekly full backup" template has been added to the policy. This template verifies data locally on the media server, which allows optimal performance of Backup Exec's Deduplication Option.

Cause



1.       Job is targeted to a De-Duplication Folder
2.       The resource being backed up is VMware.
3.       Verify option is selected within the job.


Solution



Client Side De-Duplication is not supported with VMware.
In this case to run integrated "verify" of the resource you will have to select Media Server Side De-Duplication
