Yesterday I got an error for two oracle databases which are backed up via the VEEAM RMAN plugin.Strange - there are several database instances on this system, all but the two are working fine. And these two had worked up to then, too…And… I did not change anything in the VEEAM and plugn configuraton After some discussion and research with our Oracle admin - bingo.He had moved these two databases to another Home directory and did not change the corresponding entries in the /etc/oratab. So - as shown in the picture - the backup of the database and the recovery logs worked, but the creation of the AUTOBACKUP failed and the ORA-01012 error was given.After the entries were corrected all worked fine again.Perhaps some of you will face similar issues, too. I did not find anything for this problemin the forums with a quick search.
Applicability and efficiency of each transport mode primarily depends on the type of datastore used by the source host — local or shared, and on the backup proxy type — physical or virtual. The table below shows recommendations for installing the backup proxy, depending on the storage type and desired transport mode.which one do you use?
This is going to be a quick post on how to backup a single OneDrive folder with Veeam Backup for Office 365.One of my customers developed an internal policy regarding the usage of OneDrive for Business.The policy is, that each user has a specific “Work” folder (root folder) which gets backed up with Veeam Backup for Office 365. All other folders are not backed up and the users do know that. So in this scenario we needed a OneDrive backup job, which backs up the whole organization with the OneDrive object and only includes that work folder.By the way, you are also able to exclude specific OneDrive folders by using the “-ExcludedOneDriveFolders” variable.However, in my case here it makes more sense to only include that specific folder.The scenarioI recreated that scenario with my own Office 365 Tenant, whereby I selected to only backup my webhosting folder. If you didn’t know it already, the ability to exclude or include specific folders for OneDrive backups is only available by using Po
Did you know you can easily schedule your disaster recovery tests to run with Veeam Availability Orchestrator?Orchestrator’s Lab Calendar makes it simple to run a DR test on a scheduled basis whenever you want - like on #DRTestTuesday.The best part of course, is being able to provide a copy of a production environment to your application owners when after the test has run.Just think of what you can do with a copy of your data - test patches and application upgrades, train new staff members, and do all of the testing you would never want to do in a live environment.Be sure to check out how easy it is to do right in the Orchestrator documentation.If you’re looking for the ultimate deep dive on everything testing (including running a DR test on demand and scheduling one in the Lab Calendar) in Orchestrator, don’t miss this great webinar which is nearly 100% demo (no boring PowerPoints from me!) and tackles Orchestrator’s amazing dynamic documentation as well. As part of every DR test you

Best Practices In my opinion it is very important to keep this best practice in mind If the integration API is unavailable due to licensing restrictions, or if any other deduplication appliance is used, the appliance should be considered non-integrated.In order to optimize throughput for deduplication appliances, please use the following configuration guidelines: Job configurationThe following settings are configured in the backup job “Edit” wizard under Storage > Advanced. Options not defined in this table are optional and not related to backup repositories using deduplication storage.Setting Value Tab: Backup Backup mode Incremental Create synthetic full backups periodically Enabled - if integrated Transform previous backup chains into rollbacks Disabled Create active full backups periodically Enabled - if non-integrated Tab: Maintenance Perform backup file health check Disabled Defragment and compact full backup file Disabled Tab: Storage Ena
What can I do, if the storage volume on which my Office 365 backups reside is corrupted, deleted or somehow lost ? That was the question I faced myself with. So I went into the lab to try out a few things ! In this blog post I’m going to show you how to recover a failed Veeam Backup for Office 356 repository. In addition to recover a failed repository, I’m also going to show you how to properly back up VBO repositories. Within this blog post, I will abbreviate Veeam Backup for Office 365 with VBO. Veeam Backup & Replication is abbreviated with VBR. However, lets jump into the lab and the scenario.The lab setupDue to the fact, that I still don’t have a “proper” homelab, I’m using VMware Workstation for this scenario.My lab environment for testing this case, consists of 2 virtual machines. One virtual machine is hosting VBR and the other one is hosting VBO.The VBO server itself, has an additional partition on which all backup repositories reside. All my backup jobs go into separate f
In case you missed it, a while back @tsightler presented an amazing webinar Building SecureLinux Repositories.The main topics covered in the presentation are:Securing the host system Isolating Veeam processes Levaraging snapshots Automated deploymentBONUS! Tom also does a side-by-side comparison of Veeam fastcloning on XFS vs ReFS!While Tom presents top content, I think one of my favorite parts was coverage of the fail2ban tool (at 41:47 timestamp).
HPE and Veeam are connected by a long history. HPE VSA and 3PAR were the first storages support integrated hardware snapshots. Nimble and Primera are supported as well.See this Veeam Customer Reference Book to read about 7 customer stories. Involved Industries are: Fintech, Retail, Non-Profit, Manufacturing and Healthcare. Quite impressive stories with real-world values!
