Backing Up Disks Without Partitioning

Question


We attached a second disk to our server. The ext3 file system was created on this disk without partitioning. Can the CDP Server back it up?

Solution


No for CDP Version 2.x. It requires a disk to have a partition table in order to protect it. But this is working well in CDP Version 3.0.
