If IBM Spectrum Scale on Linux is upgraded to version 5.0.5 or later, then the next IBM Spectrum Protect incremental backup might back up all files in the IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS) file system. Side effects of this behavior include duplicate backup versions and premature expiration of the oldest backup version.
- Longer backup processing time
- Increased network utilization
- Increased IBM Spectrum Protect server database and storage pool utilization
