After deploying a Windows VM in the previous article, this time I will deploy a Linux VM to be used as a Veeam Hardened Repository. Since I need some more space for storing the backup, I will use this opportunity to create the VM with a additional disks.
One of the most common questions I get in regards to Veeam and the usage of XFS filesystem with its reflink capabilities is “how do I measure the real used space?”. There are some techniques and some blog posts around, but I noticed that none of them were written with operations in mind. Time to fix this.
