After buying few more disks for our Thecus NAS 7700Pro I have decided to have System State backup of one of our servers.
After creating a new share, configuring backup task, I’ve encountered a following error:
The version does not support this version of the file format
After some googling, testing and changing options in smb.conf I’ve found that following solution as most simple:
- Create RAID filesystem of ext3 or 4 type, ZFS filesystem didn’t work in our environment
- After creating new RAID, create SMB share for backups
- Reconfigure following SMB Setting on NAS:
Windows Server Backup to NAS:
Full backup (Block-level)
After restarting, NAS is ready to receive backups.
In addition to above, I have created a simple batch which executes a full System State as well as all drives:
wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:\\IP_ADDRESS\Backup_OS\ -quiet
and set it in with Task Scheduler to run once a week.
That’s all 🙂
