How to manage backup to disk volumes and pools
We moved our backups to BE2012 recently and it runs more or less smooth.
I am not happy with the way the storage is working right now. Maybe that is cause we didn't configure it from a BE2012 point off view. Therefore this question.
I have a NAS with 16 2TB volumes on it. these Volumes have been presented to BE2012 and are mounted under the same folder. (volumes are RAID-5)
All these disk's are dedicated and only used by BE2012.
Next thing we did was make 4 disk pools each with 4 disks.
The settings for the disk have been set to:
- Max file size: 50GB
- low disk space: 5%
- low disk space - Warning 3%
- low disk space - Criticial 1%
- Concurrent write sessions: 1
Still the server tends to write all data to the same disks. Every storagepool has one disk that is filled to the limit and 3 disk that are between 10% and 50% used.
How can I resolve this issue?
