I wonder if v12 will support ESXi 8?

It will eventually but not right out of the box.  Typically, 2-3 months after release from VMware then Veeam works to support it.

Yeah that is where I watch these kind of things when they are asked. 👍

Is it still possible to easily extract the veeam accounts with a simple powershell script or is it finally fixed?

If you have direct access to the backup server you can extract anything you want from the database. This is the reason why the backup server should be hardened as much as you can.

Hello!

Any cloud provider features at v12?

Especially Veeam Self-Service Backup Portal (VBEM).

There are many features that help improve for Cloud Providers for sure but not sure about this. We are looking forward to many new features ourselves.

Does V12 also supports the OnPremise backup Repository that is Immutable?

AFAIK, Azure Storage account does not support Immutability yet as of this time I write the reply.

Yes, you can have an on-premise object storage repository with immutablility.

I’m hoping that Per-VM backup chains isn’t becoming a requirement.  The reason for not doing per-VM is to take advantage of dedupe.  If you consider a typical enterprise environment with Prod, Test, and Dev VMs running a largely duplicate dataset being backed-up to disk, the ability to group these into a single backup file that dedupes this data results in huge space savings.

As far as I can see it is turned on for any repository you add but you can turn it off as well.  So, it is not a hard requirement.

Based on it being configurable as per documentation here:https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/repository_repository.html?ver=120

 

and  the note about object storage located here: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/sobr_add_extents.html?zoom_highlight=Per+machine&ver=120

 

“For object storage repositories that you add as performance extents, this option is selected by default and you cannot disable it.”


looks like it only impacts object storage currently!

Great job @coolsport00!  

 

My favorite is the Vmover.  It’s nice being able to move backups between object storage buckets, or between on prep repos with RefS /XFS without having to rehydrate data.  And it’s great being able to move from an on-prem repo to a object repo and have the repo changed in the job as well!

I think this has been one of the best enhancements for this release.  So many possibilities.

Can we change backup repository in Veeam console.   version 12

@ShrikrushnaBhutekar - read the post @Rick Vanover shared last week and see if this is what you’re wanting. He talks about VeeamMover, but also changing Repositories.

I can confirm it works as well using ESXi 8 in my homelab for a while now. 😎

I just had a situation where the vmover saved my bacon. Had to free up some SAN space, and had to data I didn’t want to delete, but didn’t REALLY need to keep around. I moved it off quickly and we are back in business.!

I’ve also bee moving jobs around and it’s been so convenient!
