FIX (KB3216755) – Windows Server 2016 Data Deduplication, data corruption warning!

Hello, in the last word from Gostev, he explained major data corruption warning for the enterprises who have already jumped the much improved Windows Server 2016 deduplication for production use. Last week, Veeam has started to receive multiple reports on corruptions of backup files hosted on Windows Server 2016 NTFS volumes with Data Deduplication feature enabled. Luckily, the issue was easy to spot due to the system event log event (rarely the case by the way, as most storage-level corruptions go undetected – which is why it is extremely important to have storage-level corruption guard enabled in the advanced backup job settings at least when you are trying out new things). Yesterday, Microsoft released the known issue (KB3216755) to fix for Data Deduplication in Windows Server 2016 in the most recent Windows update package! More information about Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 here and on Veeam portal.

Check your Backup Files with Veeam Backup Validator

Veeam Backup Validator is an unknown feature that allows checking the consistency of a backup created with Veeam Backup and Replication. You can easily check your backup files with a command line tool located into the installation folder of the software: Veeam.Backup.Validator.exe (path: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup). This feature is not a SureBackup job! A SureBackup job is an automated task for recovery verification by starting the Virtual Machines from the backup file. The SureBackup job aggregates all settings and policies of the recovery verification task, such as application group and Virtual Lab to be used, VM backups that must be verified in the virtual lab and so on. Veeam Backup Validator is an alternative if a Standard license is used by your Veeam Backup Server or if you don’t have the required resources (compute) to create a Virtual Lab.
