Veeam – Invoke failed. Command: ‘ReFs.SetFileIntegrity’

I’ve recently deployed a update to my NAS box, which caused Veeam to error when using the NAS as a storage location, the error is

Invoke failed. Command: ‘ReFs.SetFileIntegrity’

It seems that this is a rather easy Reg fix to apply on the Veeam server to get your backups working again.

You will need to add a d-word of “UseCifsVirtualSynthetic” with a value of “0” to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication

Once added, just restart the services to continue backing up.

Veeam support mentioned this fix would be added to Update 3 for Backup and Replication, but after testing it’s still not included.
