Storeonce DIskOpen in a New Window


We have a 1T storeonce where backups were reaching the limits for backin up data.    Due to a lack of knowledge about the licensing for storeonce we had upgraded one of the systems disks to 1.25Tb, which is now an unsupported license;

Is there a possibility to schrink this disk without loss of backed up data ?   Or do we have to recreate this virtual applicance to get this fixed.

Thaks for a prompt reply.



StoreOnce Replication synchronisation problemOpen in a New Window


i have a problem in the replication between two identical storeonce systems that i have installed one in HQ and one in DR.

I am using VTLs and same VTLs are replicating to the DR site.
The replication was working properly but now it is taking forever and is not completing it is always in synchronising state.

noting that only one VTL is configured to replicate to DR now for testing purposes.

first i have tried Un map and re map the replication to see if that works. the replication started, one tape synced 10% and everything stopped later on…

After it i tried to delete the cart/files on the target and then let the replication happen again  the synchronization began but didn’t complete anything. it stayed at 0%

StoreOnce 4220 AD Authentication Fails with "Network path was not found"Open in a New Window

Hey all,

Got a StoreOnce 4220 that refuses to play nicely with Active Directory. When authentication is set to AD for the CIFS share, the box refuses to allow the Windows Shared Folder snap-in to manage permissions. It can't even enumerate the shares. Shares are visible in Windows Explorer, but "Nework path was not found" is presented when attempting to access it. This happens from Win7, Server 2008 R2, and Server 2012 clients. Screens attached.

Appropriate domain users have been added to the ACL on the device. I've fought this for three days now. What gives? Do I need to put this thing on its own VLAN and remove authentication altogether?

StoreOnce VSA 1TB new deployment (3.16.2-1712.1) catalyst + Veeam B&R errorsOpen in a New Window

Brand new lab deployment with SO 1TB. Standard config w/1TB volume and everything looks fine. Added to VBR 9.5 as Catalyst repo and attempted test job; immediate errors in job.

Opened case with Veeam; they're saying it's all coming from the SO.

 Going to trash everything and try again, but given that "SO VSA 1TB is self-help support" I really hope this is a one-off and not a serious defect in the current code.


StorceOnce VSA 10 TbOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

We have a StoreOnce VSA 10 TB on Hyper-V. The system is connected directly to the backupserver.
What will be the best way to get the biggest troughput. I started with bondig 2 interfaces, but only on is used. Next I tried to use MPIO with load balancing. Biut the ISCSI Target is shown on one Interface only. I think MPIO must set up in Storeonce. How can I do? I did not find any way.

hard drive inventory through API or CLIOpen in a New Window

Is there anyway to gather the hard drive inventory for a StoreOnce system (specifially the 6500) from either the CLI or the API SDK?

I found I could view it through the web GUI by expanding out the hardware, storage clusters, drive enclosures, sub enclosures, and drives, but even this isn't really ideal for an eight-node system I have which has many couplets and drive enclosures, and it also can't be exported out into a CSV or anything similar.




Recovery of StoreOnce VSA data-disk to new VSA?Open in a New Window

During investigation about how to get the most efficiency out of our backup-storage, and provide a flexible interface to it from our different backup-applications (MS DPM and Veeam), we have come across HP StoreOnce VSA.

We have established a test-setup, based on the free 1TB-license, with deployment of the VSA into our HyperV-environment. Here we are testing different setups around the StoreOnce, before jumping into buying those bigger TB-licenses, and it is all looking very promising.

However, while testing for failure or disaster-recovery of the StoreOnce-VSA itself, I haven't been able to find a way to re-attach an existing data-disk to a new (re)deployed VSA.
So... can anyone help me to come to a clear understanding, if it is possible to re-attach a previousl StoreOnce-VSA datadisk onto another VSA to regain access to the stored data?
And is it possible to export the configuration of the original VSA, and import it into a new VSA, in case of defect of the original one?

If not possible, of course we can always utilize backup-routines of the StoreOnce-VSA's themselfes, but here we would have to secure backup thru alternative backup/storage-systems, independent of the StoreOnce-VSA's...
So it will be preferred if it is possible to re-attach data-disks onto new VSA's.


Best regards,
Mikael K.


StoreOnce VSAOpen in a New Window


I know this isn't the correct forum but people here will probably know the answer.

I have two StoreOnce 50TB VSA's and want to save the config to an off-site file.  With my physical StoreOnce's I can do this and SFTP the config file to another place.  It seems to be not possible with the VSA.  Is this correct?



StoreOnce bulk acknowledge eventsOpen in a New Window

Is there any way to bulk acknowledge all events in StoreOnce 4500 (web or CLI)?
