Backup to Amazon S3 failed when overwrite existing files in the target directory selected

Backup to Amazon S3 failed when overwrite existing files in the target directory selected

After updated to HPE VM Explorer® 6.3.001 backup task to Amazon S3 failed when the option "if the target directory exist, overwrite existing files in the target directory" was selected and when there were already existing backup in the Amazon S3 bucket that needs overwritten  .

Solution/Workaround:

Set the following options in backup specification :

Select “The target directory must not exist, it will be created.” and set the “Nbr. Of backups to keep” to 1.

On the target destination make sure that the {DATETIME} tag is present (target should be like: [dir_path] {VM}\{DATETIME}).

This way you would get the same output as the overwrite option.

Developers are working on a fix that hopefully will be available for the next VM Explorer release .
