Hey! Microsoft SQL Server backends some of the organizations' most critical applications. Any loss of data or even the inability to fully recover this environment can cause catastrophic damage to the business.Veeam offers several options to simultaneously protect the most business-critical applications and Microsoft SQL Server environments.Starting with version 12 of Veeam Backup & Replication, the Veeam Plug-in for Microsoft SQL Server was made available.This plug-in natively integrates with Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, the Microsoft SQL Server management tool used by organizations' DBAs (database administrators).With this plug-in, DBAs have complete control over the database backup and recovery processes, with zero friction with daily activities and an integrated manner with the organization's data protection policy.Therefore, the same Veeam platform protects virtual servers, Kubernetes clusters, physical servers, notebooks, desktops, and public cloud services.Some di
And the Veeam 100 Summit 2023 has now come to a close. I myself made it home yesterday, and I know others have stayed on a bit longer but the numbers are starting to dwindle as this becomes just a fond memory.For my final piece of Veeam 100 content here, I want to share with you the heart of what makes this event such a success. The people! And I welcome the other Veeam 100 attendees to share any green content photos and stories!For me, whether it’s been getting lost in the beautiful architecture of Prague, or having a cheeky pint after hours, the friends I’ve shared it with have made it unforgettable!Photobooth FunThe Vanny Passover CeremonyGreat Friends Great FoodGreat PartyThe Best People Here’s to the number one tech community in the world 🍻
Today kicks off with another all-star cast! @Julia F Morgado, Lyudmila, Vitaly, and Alec all on stage to talk the shared features of all Veeam Backup for Public Cloud, and individual product updates! Shared FeaturesFirst up, we’ll see Veeam enabling us to leverage more granular permissions for service accounts, with a built-in validation check to confirm the permissions are assigned.We’ll also see updates to the workers, with the ability to assign tags automatically to all worker nodes for their lifecycle.The biggest announcement from this however is that we’re going to see future Veeam Backup for Public Cloud updates only become available to Veeam Backup for Public Cloud instances integrated into Veeam Backup & Replication. This will make the Veeam Backup for Public Cloud instance appear as a ‘managed server’ within VBR. The standalone Veeam Backup for Public Cloud will still exist, and all existing functionality will remain. Veeam Backup for AWSWe’re going to see support for Dyna
We start the day with @kirststoner12, Roman Kuksov, and @jorge.delacruz First up is Jorge talking us through the Veeam ONE Threat centre.Jorge talks us through the data platform scorecard, made up of the following four contributing components:Platform Security Compliance - This is driven by the VBR Security & Compliance Analyser (Formerly known as the best practice analyser) Data Recovery Health - This score looks at backups marked as suspicious/infected, you should hopefully see a 100% health when you first deploy this Data Protection Status - This score is based on the percentage of protected workloads vs unprotected Backup Immutability Status - This score is based on the number of workloads that are not compliant with the immutability target.Within each of these widget sections are call to actions for a related report to provide drilldown information on the appropriate topicsEach of these widgets have options to include/exclude settings for example:Data Recovery Health can cho
A Deeper Look at the Smart-EntityIn my Veeam Amazing Object Storage Tips & Techniques Part 4 I provided a high level introduction of the Smart-Entity feature of the Smart Object Storage API (SOSAPI). In this article, I will explain how our Technical Alliance Partner (TAP) Object First has implemented the Smart-Entity as part of their object storage solution.Let’s start off with a reminder of how the Smart-Entity feature works:Veeam Backup & Replication will tell the object storage platform how much data VBR is about to send it as well as for what object (virtual machines, cloud vms, NAS file share, and Physical machines). The object storage platform can then use this information to determine what node/endpoint will receive the backup data The object storage platform then provides VBR the node name/endpoint address to send the data toBefore I dive into the details of how Smart-Entity works, let me define what an entity is. Veeam Backup & Replication uses backup jobs to pr
I have put together a blog post going through what we have hacked during the Veeam Community Hackathon. I wrote about why we have done the project, how we developed the main functions and how we published the modules.

Alt Text: Title image with the topic title as it’s textHi, a quick workaround story today from the field.I configured a NAS Backup job that was to protect an SMB share with a bunch of sub-folders & files. When the job ran, no files and only a few folders had been processed. When I browsed the backup, the folders I was critically aiming to protect were all missing.Upon further investigation of the share, the folders weren’t “actual” folders, but were instead unsupported symlinks. I discovered this because I attempted to change the scope of the backup job to a particular subfolder to confirm access. When I tried this, I received the following error message:Unable to backup root folder <Folder Name>: folder is unavailable. Invalid root item type: a file or a symlink is detected when a folder is required. Path: [Path [<Path>], RootId [ffffffffffffffff]]Well, that’s not good! Because these were soft symlinks, this was the reason why Veeam was unable to process the data. But
Today, I tried to restore a file for the Linux server, it failed and the error message was “Unable to obtain IP address for host ‘ubuntu2310”I check the Log from Restore Session, it show “Failed to mount restore point. Unable to obtain IP addresses for host ubuntu2310”Check the DNS records and it looks good.Ping the host from the VBR Server and it looks good as well.Check the hostname from the Linux server to ensure the hostname. It has no issue.Why Unable to obtain the IP address for help host the ubuntu Linux server? I solved it and the steps are as follows.Run sudo apt update at the Linux Server.Run sudo apt-get install samba at the Linux server.Try to re-run restore steps from the VBR console and the error has gone.
Hallo everyoneI am trying to figure out what the best way to transfer Running backup jobs with tons of restore points pr. job, to a new Veeam server, without loosing any backup data/historyThe “old” Veeam server has to be decommissioned - and so will the current repository, over time.The new Veeam server should have all jobs and backup data (restore points) from “old” Veeam server and run on new repository/storage as wellWhat will be the best way on migrating all, from old to new server - and from old repo to new repo, with out loosing vital backup data and historyAnyone ?
Behind the scenes of VeeamON Resiliency SummitBehind the scenes of VeeamON Resiliency Summit
Across the company, we’ve been working for the upcoming VeeamON Resiliency Summit. This online event will serve a number of objectives:A comprehensive view of Veeam cybersecurity capabilities and strategies in the market The latest look at Veeam Data Platform capabilities Expert perspectives from leading cybersecurity experts and customersThat’s a lot. What I thought I would do for the community here is share some our insights and tricks that go on behind the scenes. Whether we are preparing for the flagship VeeamON event, a regional VeeamON Tour or this latest iteration with the VeeamON Resiliency Summit; a lot goes into a cross-functional team’s approach. I had the opportunity to contribute to the event in a few ways, and I made the case that there should be an ‘All Demo’ session on the release of the Veeam Data Platform. This version 12.1 release in the product is incredible. Further I need to say, 2023 is an incredible year for Veeam Products. With V12 being released in February an
How to fix Veeam unable to allocate processing resources issues. Error unable to find Hyper-V hosts where VM 'xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxis registered
If the backup jobs fail and show an error message is “Unable to allocate processing resources. Error: Unable to find Hyper-V hosts where VM 'xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx' is registered: Failed to connect to Hyper-V Integration Service on host, port 6163”. I tried to review the settings, and all of them look fine, but the backup jobs failed always. I have run into these issues sometimes, it’s easy to solve, you just need to reboot the Veeam management server or restart the Veeam services of the Veeam management server.
Replication Job Errors: "Object Reference Not Set..." and "Failed to Create Processing Task for VM...Host ID not Found"
I wanted to share a couple Veeam errors I experienced on my Replication (DR-side) server after I replaced server hardware. Not sure if anyone has experienced either of these errors, but they were quite frustrating to work through. Let me know if you had a similar experience/occurrence and what you did to resolve it. Maybe what I share here will help someone.As I was replacing hardware in my DR side vSphere Clusters, on my VBR server, I would perform a vCenter rescan to make sure VBR would see the new Hosts and my Replication jobs would run successfully. Because all the tasks involved with replacing h/w is time-consuming, I was only doing 3-4 Hosts a day (took 3 days for 10 Hosts), so I had to do this rescan several times. I think I only verified 1 or 2 jobs out of around 12 I have, but they run good. On the 2nd day, I noticed 1 of my jobs failed. The error shown was below:So, it appeared to me like Veeam didn’t actually all references to any of my old Hosts and their associated ID from
That was not happening only at VM with the secure boot in the Hyper-V environment. It also impacts VMware.After installing this update on guest virtual machines (VMs) running Windows Server 2022 on some versions of VMware ESXi, Windows Server 2022 might not start up. Only Windows Server 2022 VMs with Secure Boot enabled are affected by this issue. Affected versions of VMware ESXi are versions vSphere ESXi 7.0.x and below.We may ask customers to put them on hold to install the October patch for Windows Server 2022.
Hi allI already read and know different articles and posts of different people like @MicoolPaul, @olivier.rossi, @Chris.Arceneaux and others regarding object storage and the used block size.In this article a bit more about that in combination with Veeam Cloud Connect. Goal : My goal is to setup a new Veeam Cloud Connect infrastructure for multiple hundreds of customers. Setup : The setup of the Veeam Cloud Connect is a infrastructure that consists of several SOBR’s that consists of multiple extents (performant block-storage physical servers with REFS - 64K) in a performance tier in 1 datacenter and a capacity tier with object storage (performant physical object storage devices) in another datacenter with using the copy-mode and immutability.Of course there is a performant interconnection between the 2 datacenters. Advantages of this setup : There are a lot of advantages in my opinion in using that setup : we use 2 datacenters and all data is being copied from 1 datacenter to another da
I was doing a production backup chains upgrade, and we saw an alert for Microsoft Defender Cloud.It was because the blobs were being rescanned and upgraded by Veeam during the backup chains upgrade. All was fine. It's just a triggered alert that could be documented internally as nothing to worry about.
Container runtimes are fundamental components of Kubernetes. It is responsible for managing the execution and lifecycle of containers, and it is necessary to choose and install a container runtime into each worker node in the Kubernetes cluster to run PODs. Container runtimes can be categorized into:• High-level container runtimes: CRI-O, containerd and Docker.• Low-level container runtimes: runc and crun.• Sandboxed and virtual container runtimes: runsc (from gVisor) and kata-runtime/the-runtime (from Kata Containers). The Container Runtime Interface (CRI) is the specification in charge of the communication between the kubelet and the high-level runtimes. The CRI defines gRPC APIs that allow the kubelet to interact as a client with different runtimes. CRI performs an abstraction layer for high-level runtimes. The high-level runtimes use a lower-level container runtime to run and manage the components required to deploy and operate containers. Open Container Initiative (OCI) specifica
Hey! The first version of Magic Quadrant for Container Management is around! If we compare the companies named leaders by Gartner with those that contributed most to the Kubernetes project last year, we will realize that they are practically the same. Coincidence? I don't think so.These solutions deliver many Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) projects alongside Kubernetes distributions, like service mesh, security, observability, etc. Container management is a foundation for cloud-native infrastructure and helps enterprises automate container image provisioning, operation, and life cycle management at scale.Remember to protect these platforms with Kasten! :-)
Hello All,Sharing update on a case where Jobs stuck in VBR, however does not reflect any Veeam.exe process under VBR, proxy or agent Machine From the task logs could find the PID of the job as below however no process shows up under task Manager on VBR, proxy or agent machine in this case oracle plugin VM.

If it happened Error 1327.Invalid Drive when you try to upgrade the Veeam server, don’t panic. This is likely caused by a stale registry entry for the Veeam server. In my case, the Veeam server had an F drive but removed it a long time ago. My error message is Error 1327.Invalid Drive F: and the upgrade failed.1.login to the Veeam management server.2.Run regedit.3.check the following registry path on the Veeam server. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Veeam\Veeam Backup Catalog\ and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wor6432Node\Veeam, do either of these paths show the F drive? Likely it will be the VBR catalog folder in my case.4.Right-click CatalogPath, select Modify.5.Change the Value data from F:\VBRCatalog to C:\VBRCatalog, click OK.6.Re-run upgrade again. The error message should be gone.
