How to Use Multiple Backup Repositories Pointing to a Single Catalyst Store

Last update date:


Affected products:

Veeam Backup & Replication

Affected releases:


Fixed releases:

No fixed releases provided.



To minimize backup job duration and reduce disk space used for backups, you can configure multiple Veeam Backup & Replication repositories on a single HPE StoreOnce Catalyst Store. However, due to the lack of folders concept on StoreOnce, such configuration may result in Veeam B&R metadata inconsistency, causing backup data corruption.


Limitations and Considerations The following are known limitations and considerations of this subfolder-based configuration: Repositories created using the method documented in this KB article cannot be edited or rescanned via the GUI. PowerShell cmdlets can be used to edit or rescan the created repositories. This limitation will be resolved in a future Veeam Backup & Replication release. After creating StoreOnce Repositories based on subfolders of a Catalyst Store, a StoreOnce Repository using the parent Catalyst Store itself without a subfolder must not be created and should be removed if it exists. Only subfolders of a Catalyst Store itself can be created; subfolders at a deeper nesting level are not supported.
