If you do no know much about Hardened Repository in Veeam VBR v11, read here to learn more about:I was asked, if a hardened repository can be a extent of a Scale Out Repository (SOBR). Good news: yes it can! But you have to take some facts into account.Hardened repositories can be Performance Tiers of SOBR. A SOBR can contain a mix of repositories: ReFS, XFS, Immutable and mutable. Even in mixed SOBR, Performance Placement Policy can be set. That leads to, for example, immutable increments and mutable fulls. When you mix, for example, ReFS with immutable extents, you can use Evacuate backups to free an extent. I would not recommend any points 1 - 3!In my opinion the point 4 is the most important. With evacuating an extent you can easily migrate from ReFS to XFS with immutability.Notice: If you evacuate an immutable repository, Veeam performs a copy, not a move operation! Which makes perfect sense! When backups are evacuated to a hardened repository, files will be immutable as long as
Hi All. Hope you great. I most likely corrupted my veeam DB after upgrade. Even after repository re-scan my Veeam B&R is upset with my default repository. I recall there was a regedit command to force veeam to rebuild its DB. If anyone can help I will really appreciate it. Here is the error as attached.I would love to solve this. If anyone can assist.
Hi,I’d be interested in getting feedback from people that are already using HPE Apollo’s or other high density servers with local storage as repository server. It seems that a lot of people are currently planning to use them.what is you setup? Number of servers? Number of disks? Which type and size of RAID? Number of VM’s / source data how is your performance? do you use them only as backup target or as copy source as well? which filesystem ReFS/XFS with blockcloning/reflink

Good day everyone !In November 2020 I created a PowerCLI script which creates a vSphere role with cumulative permissions for Veeam Backup & Replication version 10.In the meantime VBR v11 was released and I needed to update that script and wanted to create “new awareness” of it. The fact that I see A LOT of Administrator@vsphere.local users being used with adding the vCenter to Veeam makes me nervous, that’s why I wanted to fight against this with a simple script so no one needs to manually go through the privileges. Now there is no excuse to use highly privileged user accounts !This PowerShell / PowerCLI script lets you create a new vCenter server role with all the cumulative privileges and permissions to use them with Veeam Backup & Replication V11.The privileges used are based on the recommendations out of the Veeam Help Center which you can find here: Cumulative Permission for VMware vSphere – Veeam Help CenterSimply execute the script and follow the steps to fill in the rel
Hello Veeam, I would like to ask regarding on how to size repository needed for Veeam via http://rps.dewin.me/If customer gave the data size that needs to backup which is 28tb and backup policy must have 2YR retention and the sched will be 24months Full, 4 weekly Full and 7 Daily incremental.So technically I will create a "Backup Copy Job GFS” in Dewin, and will enter 24 in Months the total for that one is 219.2TB, will create another one for weekly will enter 4 in Weekly and total of 44.2 TB, and last for Daily incremental will select "Forever Incremental” and retention will be 7 and total of 31.89 TB. For all type of backup i checked the Refs/XFS, 10% conservative for change rate, and 50% on data left after reduction. So it means i will add the total for all and that is equivalent to 295.29 TB of storage. So i need a total of 295.29 TB with 2YR retention? I think is is too much give that Veeam have dedup/compress features, if you will size can you share the details as well. Thanks

IntroductionIn a previous post, I covered the SOBR Capacity tier Calculations and Considerations. Today, I will be exploring the Archive tier and discuss how to estimate Archive storage requirements, expected API calls and Proxy Appliance uptime. Before we jump into more details, remember that the Archive tier only works with “Amazon S3 Glacier”, “Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive” and “Microsoft Azure Archive Storage” in Veeam v11. In the SOBR configuration, under Archive Tier, you define after how many days (1) you want to free up space from your more expensive capacity tier by offloading to the typically** less expensive Archive Tier.**Keep in mind that the Archive tier is meant to store data for a long time (i.e. more than 1 year, up to 7 or more years). It is not meant for active day-to-day restore operations.You will find that storing data in the Archive Tier for less than 1 year won’t make much economic sense (at least at the time of this write-up!). It is also very important to re
Good morning I wanted information.I have a vmware environment and with veaam I backup the VMs.I wanted to know how I can remove an esx host from veeam licenses and thus freeing 2 sockets assign the license to another esx host. attached in file 1 I want to revoke socket for 22.214.171.124 and I want to assign it to another esx host that is managed by the same vcenter. kind regards
The special-purpose .local top-level domain (TLD) is not designed for use in the global Domain Name System (DNS). Rather, multicast DNS (mDNS) uses it to resolve hostnames to IP addresses within small networks, eliminating the need for a dedicated DNS server. Specifically, mDNS operates on the local network link and uses the .local TLD for this purpose. When an mDNS client needs to resolve a hostname that ends with .local, it sends queries to the mDNS IPv4 link-local multicast address 126.96.36.199 or its IPv6 equivalent ff02::fb.Top 5 reasons why it is a bad ideaLet’s dive into why using the .local top-level domain (TLD) can lead to a handful of issues.Standards Compliance: The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) reserves the .local TLD for mDNS in RFC 6762. If you use it in another context or within a traditional unicast DNS context, you may face non-compliant behavior and conflicts. Compatibility Issues: Systems, particularly those running Apple’s Bonjour service, frequently use mD

UPDATE: Please see Update 3, as the hotfix/workaround needs to be undone because of possible side-effects.Just a quick information.Currently there could be an issue with Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 and Sharepoint. Some sites will be backed up with the following warning:Processing site XYZ finished with warning: Failed to backup list: XYZ.

Frequently I'm ask in how to monitor backup jobs of Veeam externally Veeam servers.I know that we can do this easy with Veeam One. But here I’m going to show you a solution to monitor backup jobs having only a Veeam Backup Server (without VEM or VONE).So, the application I’m talking about is Checkmk. Checkmk is a monitoring software usually used on NOC (Network Operations Center) environments. However, this is an easy tool to deploy and very light to hav in our backup environment. VersionsCheckmk has a free and commercial version:Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE) – Free and 100% Open Source. It even incorporates Nagios into its core. You can use it to monitor entire environments. Support for this release is available through the Checkmk community forum.Checkmk Enterprise Free Edition (CFE) – version already based on the standard edition, with Checkmk Micro Core (CMC), which means that it is no longer based on Nagios and is aimed at small IT environments with a single site and up to 25 monitore

It there a limit function for this storage in the communitiy edition?Many thanks forwards Stefan
You might or might not know this, but Wasabi does have a minimum storage duration policy in place.What's that?Depending on your pricing model, each uploaded object will be billed for a minimum amount of time.Pay-as-you-go customers have 90 days, reserved capacity customers (pre-paid) will have 30 days.If you delete an object before this minimum duration is over, the remaining time will still be charged.You can find more information on this website:https://wasabi-support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058734492-How-does-Wasabi-s-minimum-storage-duration-policy-work-ExampleYou upload 1TB of objects to Wasabi and have the 90 days minimum storage duration policy in place. After a week you decide to delete the whole 1TB.This means you pay for:7 days timed active storage 83 days timed deleted storageCan I recover deleted objects?You might think, that as you pay for deleted objects, you may be able to recover those. Unfortunately this is not the case, so you can’t use this as a recycle bin.
