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
The Veeam Vanguard program is one of the best influencer/evangelist programs out there, and one reason you need to nominate yourself or someone else that deserves to be in this program. You will gain access to cutting-edge technology as well as resources. With 2023 just around the corner, now is the time to consider nominating yourself or someone you know who should be considered. Also, at this time, for the existing Veeam Vanguards like myself, it is renewal time to ensure I am selected for another year in this exciting program.Being a Veeam Vanguard means being part of an exclusive community of top IT professionals and thought leaders worldwide. As a member, you’ll have access to a wide range of exclusive resources and opportunities, including:Early access to new Veeam products and features Invitations to Veeam-sponsored events and webinars Opportunities to provide feedback and input on Veeam product development Access to the Veeam Vanguard private community, where you can connect
I had the pleasure of presenting this Kubernetes 101 session to the Veeam Community thanks to my work as part of their Veeam Vanguards program, and a special thank you to Michael Cade who co-presented with me!In this session we cover the following with technical details included:How have we got here? Kubernetes – The Building Blocks Policies Wrap-up I’ve also a number of Kubernetes related content on my blog. And I’m slowly completing 100 Days of Kubernetes tracked here on my GitHub.
VeeamONE allows you fire a script when alarms are triggered so given the time of year for the last Veeam User Group of the year I have created a Christmas themed dashboard and api to push alerts too and display them in real time.When an alert is received the dashboard which is subscribed to a websocket has the alarm detail pushed down to it and in turn has the alarm formatted and injected onto the page.Note there is a new experimental VeeamONE API I will look to show and provide an alternate dashboard where we are pulling the alarms directly.Here's an example of the dashboard running with one alarm having been pushed through.Ways you can use this yourselfRun the docker image I have already built For the time limited, use my demo endpoint at https://veeamonereceiver.benyoung.dev Clone the source code, modify if required and publish (built in aspnet core)There is a Get Started page that has links to the powershell script/alarm config, or a more detailed version is below.1. Run the docke

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

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

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
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:
Today’s post is a direct result of experience in the field, and it was certainly an interesting one!I was recently working with a customer that wanted to migrate to the Veeam Availability Suite. They had an Enterprise SAN solution that they were using for booting their VMware ESXi hosts, in addition to storing their workloads on. The customer’s virtual estate was large, with some servers that were highly transactional, and a great candidate for storage snapshots.Everything was going well, until I performed the storage integration with Veeam, and hit a severe issue. after performing the storage rescan, all of the ESXi hosts within the cluster suffered a PSOD near simultaneously. I’ve certainly never seen that before, and upon asking all of my peers in the wider Veeam community and even some Veeam technical contacts, NOBODY had seen this before. The Culprit: The issue thankfully was not one that required much troubleshooting to discover what was going wrong. Each of the ESXi hosts were
The #2MinTues series is aimed at showing something short and sharp in a video format to help the wider community.This will range across all Veeam products. If you would like to see something specific please leave a comment down below.This video will demonstrate how you can make sure that your backup tasks never affect your production workloads!
In this week's episode of #HomelabWednesdays, I show you how to easily configure the automatic startup of virtual machines in your home lab. This is very convenient if you don’t want to keep your physical host powered on 24/7 :-)Don’t forget to subscribe to get automatic notifications whenever a new video is released.
