VCSA Backup - successful but with file integrity failure

Backup Job completes but seeing file integrity check failure so not entirely confident, can you suggest any further actions?

You seems to have issues with root partition it seems . Better to restore VC from backup and then try this .

thanks but not sure what you mean by "try this", should I open a ticket with GSS for a proper health check?

Yes..Better get is validate by support once. Open a SR and upload a VC bundle

What version of SMB are you running, from end-to-end? Do they match on VCSA vs the Backup host?
