Last week Veeam did release Veeam Backup for Salesforce (VBSF). VBSF is a completly new product which offers backup for the Salesforce CRM plattform.Salesforce only has very limited possibilities for backing up your data & metadata, just like many other PaaS vendors (plattform as a service). On the other hand they recommend their customers to regularly create backups. For more informations see this article: Best practices to backup Salesforce dataInstallationVBSF is supported to run on CentOS 7, RedHat Linux 7/8 and Oracle Linux 7/8, and uses PostgreSQL as a database. So in order to install and manage it, you should have at least some basic Linux skills. You can choose to install the software and it’s dependencies manually, or use the setup script provided by Veeam, which automates all the necessary steps:sudo curl https://repository.veeam.com/yum/el/vbsf-install-script.sh --output ./vbsf-install-script.shsudo sh ./vbsf-install-script.shhttps://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbsf/usergu

Hi Folks, It will be a great honour and huge pleasure to have a chat with Mumshad Mannambeth from Kodekloud. I found all the Kubernetes certifications to be very challenging exams. Kodekloud’s courses are excellent and the practice exams prepared me for what was going to come. All of the Linux Foundation exams (except for the entry level KCNA) are hands on from the command line. There are time restraints and you have to solve real problems that can occur in production. The experience was like dealing with multiple priority 1 emergencies one after the other. The key is learning the material but also putting the kubectl commands to muscle memory. Of course keeping your cool is a huge priority. I hope to find out a lot of interesting details from Mumshad about how he created Kodekloud but also get some tips on what is coming and what are the hot topics in the Devops education world.

One of my roles at Veeam is to work with our Technology Alliance Partners, resellers, and customers assisting them with their object storage related questions. Quite often I need to be able to analyze the S3 API requests that Veeam’s software sends to the object storage repository. One of my favorite tools that I use for this analysis is S3 bucket access logging.By enabling this feature on a bucket, you will be able to capture information on all requests made to that bucket. Requests like PUT, GET, and DELETE are all gathered and stored in a log that you specify when you enable the logging. Please Note: Not all object storage solutions support the S3 bucket access logging, so make sure that you check their documentation and/or support to verify that they support it.You can either use the interface provided by your object storage solution or you can use the AWS CLI. In this article I will use the AWS CLI.The first step is we need a dedicated bucket to store our S3 logs in. It is a
Recently I had to troubleshoot an error in Veeam Backup and Replication. Error appeared at File Level Restore operations. In detail: restore Windows files from a Veeam Hardened Repository.Environment consists of existing and freshly installed proxies and repositories servers. New repository servers were Windows and Linux as hardened repository (LHR). Mount server was a physical Windows server.Problem that occurredWhen we tried to restore files from LHR we get errors like these: We also could see that mounting of the restore point worked for a few moments. Restore Explorer also showed first directories. After a few seconds, mount point was disconnected automatically and browsing in Explorer resulted in an error.After some tests we found out, this only happens when we were using newly installed proxies as mount servers. It worked fine with already running proxies and even with new Windows repository server.That was solved the problemWhen we were checking the configuration of new proxy
I thought I posted the following post already. But it seems I missed to do so. I also saw @PValsecchi posted similar content already But I think I add some other details here, so I hope it is okay to post my stuff too. What is it aboutOne of the new v12 features will be the possibility to move backups between repositories. It’s not just new that this will be an option in the GUI, also fast cloning information will be moved. This means that synthetic fulls will not need more space on target repository than it uses on source! This feature is very useful when it comes to replacing old repository hardware with new one.How to move backup job dataIn beta there are several ways to move backups from one repository to another. One way is to right-click Job Name beneath Disk and select Move backup.The following windows will ask about the destination repository.I could see all repository types of my test environment: ReFS, XFS, object storage and Scale-Out backup repositories. When movement runs

Hi Everyone, More and more of us are spending our days wandering around various CLIs. There are times when you need to jump out into a file explorer in the precise location where your pwd command locates you.on windows simply type start .on a Mac doopen .and on Linux (I will demo this since I am in my basement on one of my stashed Linux machines hidden away :) xdg-open .So here I am in my Pictures directory I would like to see the thumbnails quickly so here it goes and Voila! If the xdg-open command is too long for you go ahead and create an alias in your .bashrc file
Recently I got this error below during the Oracle redo log backup:Oracle redo log errorMy backup job configuration is about a Veeam Linux Agent in an Oracle Linux and the application aware was configured to backup logs with 15 minutes interval and delete logs older than 24 hours:Application aware configurationThis kind of configuration is very common on critical databases and I have this same configuration in various environments.So, the first thing I assumed is that the cause of the problem was not on the Veeam side.Looking on Linux side I discovered that the user used on Guest Processing configuration needs to be part of the oinstall group on OS.So, the only thing I did was put this user on this group:usermod -aG oinstall <my_user> After that, all Oracle redo logs started to being process successfully:Oracle redo log success
When a backup policy is configured in Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure, the job doesn't start automatically on a backup schedule.This is a known bug of the software and the fix requires a patch installation directly in the system. Install the fixAfter copying the patch provided by the support (patch Fix_263734_34880afcb0.zip) to the appliance (you can use WinSCP), stop the service with the following comand:# sudo systemctl stop veeamazurebackupInstall the package using the command:# sudo apt-get install /tmp/veeamazurebackup_184.108.40.2061_amd64.debAfter few seconds the patch installation is completed successfully.Start the service veeamazurebackup with the command:# sudo systemctl start veeamazurebackupNow login to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure and schedule the job. After applying the patch, the job now runs on a backup schedule.The fix for this issue is quite simple to apply and takes only few minutes.

Veeam Backup and Replication provides two different backup modes to process Hyper-V backups, both relying on the Microsoft VSS framework.On-Host backup mode, for which backup data processing is on the Hyper-V node hosting the VM, leveraging non transportable shadow copies by using software VSS provider. Off-Host backup mode, for which backup data processing is offloaded to another non-clustered participating Hyper-V node, leveraging transportable shadow copies using hardware VSS provider provided by the SAN storage vendor or SMB3 functionality Performance wise, since both backup modes are using the exact same Veeam transport services, the only differentiating factors will be the additional time requested to manage transportable snapshots (in favor of On-Host mode) and the balance between compute and backup resources consumption during backup windows (in favor of Off-Host mode).When using Windows Server 2016 or later, On-Host proxy mode is very fast and requires less components, thus re
