Link Station as a VEEam target -- not working
« on: February 12, 2013, 09:24:02 am »

Last fall, I purchased a my first Buffalo Tech TS-QVHL62A.  I hooked it up to my network and started using it with VEEam as a target repository for backups.  It has worked flawlesssly.

 

 I had a remote site that needed something similar, so I purchased a LS-QV8.0TL/R5  and put it at that other location.  I have had nothing but trouble.

 

I can use WIndows to copy anything.  I can use XCopy.  I have no trouble accessing or manipulating the drive.  However, if I try to use VEEam to back up to it, it gets about 4-5 GB into the process and the backup errors off with a message that indicates the VEEam server cannot see 

the  Buffalo Tech NAS .  I finally brought it back here to the mothership, set it up identically to the first Bufffalo Tech  NAS and tried a test backup.  I got the exact same error.

 

2/12/2013 9:53:32 AM :: Error: Client error: The specified network name is no longer available.

Failed to write data to the file [\\vgtarg02\data\FromWalton\Daily 2Gateway Backup\Daily 2Gateway Backup2013-02-12T094550.vbk].


What can I do to make this problem go away?

The LS-QVL is not designed to work, nor supported with VMware.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Which product lines are meant to work with VEEam? 

 

What keeps my unit from working?

Actually VMWare really has little to do with it. This is being used as a VEEam target-- that is a repository for backups. I can Xcopy the files out to the LinkStation no problem.  Why can't the backup software work?

More info:

 

I got the box out of the server room and set it up at my desk.  I took some multi-gigabyte files and set up a robocopy job to copy them to the NAS.  After a period of about 5 minutes, the NAS became unreachable.  I could no longer browse its folders, or access the web interface.  I stopped the robocopy job and waited.  After five minutes of inactivity, all of a sudden I could browse the folders again.

 

What's up with that?
