A quick note on an important point that I missed originally in Microsoft’s announcement. As users are starting to find their basic authentication mechanisms are being actively disabled, Microsoft have provided one last mechanism to prevent a complete outage if you rely on basic authentication currently. Which Protocols Are Impacted? If you’re using basic authentication for any of the following protocols, you might find that suddenly it has stopped working:Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) Exchange Web Services (EWS) IMAP MAPI Offline Address Book (OAB) POP Remote PowerShell RPC I Think This Impacts Me, What Do I Do? Microsoft are offering one final time to re-enable Basic Authentication, via the self-service diagnostics, direct link here.From this link, you can see which protocols are disabled, and choose a specific protocol that you can re-enable. Warning: Microsoft Are Serious This Time Microsoft have stated that any protocols that are re-enabled will be automatically disabled in the first c

A Veeam storage plugin needs to control your storage device in a way. Therefore you need a user account inside your storage system. The same of course is true for the DataCore plugin.From a security standpoint one always wants to have only the least amount of permissions to be allowed to the user. Avoid using a global admin here to minimize your attack surface!Here I will describe how to achieve that with the Veeam storage plugin for DataCore:First create a new role inside your DataCore console. In the screenshot the permissions to attach to the role are shown:Veeam storage plugin for DataCore - Role permissionsOnce the role is setup, you can create the user inside DataCore and select the role to assign it to:Veeam storage plugin for DataCore - Create the user for Veeam accessFinally you will have to create a local user of the exact same name inside all Windows servers involved in your DataCore cluster. Usually one has two nodes in a mirrored cluster. As the nodes are not supposed to b

This is the second part of my SQL Instant Recovery posts. First part:I would like to list some of the software’s behaviors here.Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server is closed. One could gain the impression from the documentation Veeam Explorer does the whole work. This is not the case, if Explorer gets closed, just start it again. Mount Server, proxy or repository Server is offline. This is a problem, because these components are necessary for keeping your Instant Recovery database alive. Fortunately Veeam took this into account. So the system checks periodically (every 5 minutes) if needed components are online again and re-establish all connections. If you fixed the problem before next scheduled retry, you can trigger the retry manually by pressing the Retry button.Restoring to original locating with original database still in place. The Explorer wants to have your decision confirmed. Veeam VBR Server uses older SQL Server version than source Server. This is generally not a proble
Did you know you’re 30 minutes away from Orchestrated DR at any given moment?Veeam Availability Orchestrator takes just 20 minutes to configure, and it takes less than 10 minutes to create an Orchestration Plan, what we call your your fully documented and automated DR plan.Don’t believe me? I have proof! Those videos cover everything you need to get started after you have installed VAO, and run through the initial configuration wizard, which couldn’t be simpler.Here’s a few more tips I’ve discovered along the way and am sharing:Install the VAO agent on all of your Veeam Backup & Replication servers. Once you install the agent, VAO understands the jobs you already have configured, and can orchestrate their recovery. Simple! If you use NetApp storage, be sure to have your SnapMirrors configured ahead of time if they aren’t already. Once you add your storage systems, you guessed it, VAO understands the relationships you have and can orchestrate their recovery! vSphere Tags make t
In this quick quicktip I show how it is easily possible to show all jobs, a specific login account is used in. This can be very useful if you want to change the password or permissions of an account - to check involved jobs - or if you just want to clean up your configuration.To do so, open the Manage CredentialsTo show all jobs, just mouseover the account name. You see all jobs in popup: If account is used for no job, you see similar popup: There is also a popup, when mouseover the selected credentials in job:

So part one of the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 discusses the shared responsibility model and outlines both Microsoft and Customer responsibilities. I also took at why you need to backup briefly but will dive more into this for part two. You can find resource links and part one here - Part 1 When it comes to backing up your Microsoft 365 data, there are seven reasons why you NEED to back it up -Accidental deletion: This is actually the most common cause of data loss in Microsoft 65. If you delete a user, whether you meant to or not, that deletion will then be replicated across the netw rk. A backup could restore that user, either to on-premises Exchange or Microsoft 365. Retention policy gaps and confusion: Retention policies in Microsoft 365 are designed to help organizations comply with regulations, laws and internal policies that require that they retain or delete content; they are not back ps. But even if you do rely on your retention policy in place of a backup, these retention

In the past years, IT has changed dramatically. The pandemic accelerated Microsoft Teams and overall Microsoft 365 adoption, Office co-authoring surged, and organizational data found its way to all sorts of cloud apps.In this webinar, Jay Gundotra (from ENow Software, the fabulous Karinne Bessette (Technologist at Veeam) and I discuss how things have changed from their perspective.Working with organizations has offered us many insights in the way people think. While discussing our experiences, we found three common myths:We have a 99,99% SLA. Monitoring Microsoft 365 is unnecessary.Procurement is in charge of managing Microsoft 365 licenses. They’re in control.Microsoft takes care of backups as part of Microsoft 365. We don’t have to do anything in that area to ensure business continuity. Most organizations believe these myths to be true, but they are not. 😆In fact, it’s dangerous to assume these myths are true in this cloud age, as they may result in downtime and data loss at a highe

Switching to Seal Mode - User Guide for VMware vSphere (veeam.com) Hello I wanted to bring to your attention a really interesting and useful feature.Create new Veeam backup repository on new storage Insert new exent on existing SOBRSet seal mode extent to be decommissioned After the extent is sealed, no further data is saved to the extent, and only read operations such as restore, merge and remove are allowed.Wait for the chains of all your jobs to reach the set restore points.Then verify that no Veeamzip \ export backups or oneshot backups without schedules are allocated on the old extent to be decommissioned.Such data will not be migrated needs a manual operation of moving veeamzip \export backup files etc.I love this feature allows me painless storage migrations for both standalone VBR environments and Veeam Cloud Connect platform .thanks for your attention
This is the first post in my new blog series about small improvements and/or features in v11.The first improvement is a tiny one. Experienced User will not recognize it and for new users it will make it easier to proceed. It is about the item-restore wizard. More detailed: the last page of the wizard, before the item-browser starts. Here is a screenshot of the new page:Do someone recognize the modification?The word Finish was replaced by the word Browse!I still can remember when I started the wizard the first time, and I see Finish at a point I expected to select single files. I re-started the wizard and was afraid what's coming next. Did anyone else feel the same way? No one will ever go through this horror again.
