Hi everyone,recenly i’m doing some test on the veeam backup&replication community edition on my Dell R710 which is running server 2019 standard. And at the first time, i can add a hyper-v server which is running server2019 (standalone) to the backup job, but once i deleted the job, i cannot add any hyper-v again.It always shows :Failed to connect to host 10.178.3.41Access denied or timeout expired. (sometimes is invalid namespace)Check if you have local administrator privileges on computer '10.178.3.41'.Possible reasons:1. Invalid credentials.2. Specified host is not a Hyper-V server.================what i did for this issue:https://www.veeam.com/kb1914 https://www.scribd.com/document/421024195/Veeam-Backup-Invalid-Credentials-Error-Adding-a-Hyper# I added both the target server and the server with the veeam installed to the domain created the local admin account for both server, using same account and pwd using domain admin account cannot work checking the port and disable the
With the newest release V12, Veeam Backup & Replication is now capable of implementing immutability with HPE StoreOnce Catalyst stores. HPE calls this ‘Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Controlled Data Immutability (ISV-DI)’. With this post I want to quickly describe the requirements and configuration steps.RequirementsThere are some requirements, that need to be met in order to use immutability with StoreOnce systems.you need to have a Gen4 StoreOnce system with at least firmware 4.3.2 you need to configure Dual Authorization Maximum ISV Controlled Data Retention needs to be set to 365000 in the StoreOnce Catalyst Store you need to use forward incremental backup jobs and/or enable GFS for Backup Copy Jobs → For more information check the helpcenter Enable Dual AuthorizationWith Dual Authorization certain tasks on a StoreOnce require a second factor before they’re executed. This second factor isn’t a OTP token or something similar but rather a second user/password which you need to
Morning, Just to copy this sentence directly from the latest “Word from Gostev”:“So I do expect the on-prem object storage adoption to go through the roof after V12 comes out with its support for backing up directly to object storage.” There’s been talk of it before, but it’s great to see this as near to a commitment from Veeam as possible, prior to seeing it in the final product. This will do wonders for efficiency and scalability, I’ll be interested to see how this changes the dynamic of ReFS/XFS volumes vs just deploying object storage. V12 is going to change the game!
The restore point was created at 10/4, but the VIB file was remove from the disk already, on the resotre point portal, it still show normal status for this resotre point, so i cannot remove it. Also try to rescan bakcup repo, it say below:added 0 unencrypted, added 0 encrypted, updated 0, removed 0, skipped 1, failed 0
During troubleshooting a backup environment, it’s common the necessity of test ports responsivity of our backup servers, like Veeam backup server, mount server, proxy or repositories.We normally do that with telnet. However, by default telnet client is not installed during Windows Server and the Veeam Backup Server often is our principal component our backup infrastructure.So, if you want to test some communication port without install telnet client, you can use PowerShell for it.Use the sintax below:Test-NetConnection -ComputerName <IP> -Port <port>Here is an example for the command:An interesting point is that if the communication port is not well succeeded, the utility make an aditional ping test:
I see one more change in VBR V11 Beta - the handling of exported backups and of backups with no associated backup job. Exported Backups:Up to V10 exported (disk) backups were put in the section “Disk (imported)”In V11 the exported backups are put in another section - “Disk (VeeamZIP)”. Up to V10 I have seen this section when creating a VeeamZip archive intentionally only. Backups from deleted backup jobs:Backups which were created from deleted backup jobs were put in the section “Disk (Imported)”, too. In V11 there is a new section: “Disk (Orphaned)” I think this describes the status of these backups much better than before.
I know this might be a superfluous post, but I write it anyway because I know that someone will do a google search about it.Windows 11 is out today (and if you are an IT you doesn’t install it today definitely in some production device, aren’t you?)Anyway Veeam Agent for Windows 188.8.131.5201 has issue with it, and it’s not supported.So.Please.Wait.As @MicoolPaul said:You want v11a which currently has “Windows 11 readiness” based on pre-release, still not officially supported of course! But v11a includes 5.0.1 KB4215: Release Information for Veeam Backup & Replication 11a
IntroductionV12 is launching (register here) on Valentine's day and one of the most anticipated feature is the ability to backup directly to object. As my Valentine's gift to you, I wanted to highlight what's required to get your first V12 backup Direct to AWS S3 going. What do we need?An S3 bucket, an IAM user with the proper policy and a VPC for the helper appliance. A quick note about the V12 direct to object "helper" applianceIn the context of direct backups to AWS S3, the helper Appliance is a temporary EC2 instance that Veeam leverages to perform backup file health-checks.The benefit is to avoid having to "pull-down" any of the backup data on-premises to perform that maintenance operation. You configure the helper appliance settings at the Mount Server step of declaring your Object Repository.Giving the proper permissions in your policy, Veeam gives you the option to auto-create the required VPC, Subnet, Security Group and Route table.I personally would rather set all of this up-
Hi there,Veeam B&R 12 is installed on a Windows 2022 Server, which is installed on VMWare ESXi 6.5 U3. From there I backup our produtvie Server, which is a VMWare ESXi 6.7 with a Windows Server 2016 and a Windows Server 2012 R2 (Exchange Server) installed on it. Everything works fine, exept the backup of the Windows 2012 R2 Server. It does backup, but I receive the Warning “Failed to index guest file system. VSS Control: Index failed". Is there any way to fix this, except disabling the file indexing?
Any idea for this? It’s pure Hyper-V with Azure, not AWS. 1/31/2023 10:06:49 AM Warning Failed to connect to AWS plug-in: Failed to login to platform service: The HTTP resource that matches the request URI 'https://vbr11:9402/api/v1/account/login' is not supported.
Yesterday I saw the error a second time, so I thought it would be helpful to others to share.Error happens when VBR tries to read vSphere information for the VM to back up. Error says "Error in the application" like you see in the screenshot.After some troubleshooting we found the reason for this. It was because TCP-port 902 was not allowed (in all firewalls) from the Veeam proxy server to the ESXi host that was hosting the VM to back up. After the port was enabled in the firewall(s), backup ran without further issues. Notes:Used ports for VBR see here: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/used_ports.html?ver=110 Vanguard @Cragdoo also shared this error some time ago. In his case the error was caused by a name-resolution problem on a new Linux Veeam proxy server.I hope this post safe others some time when this error appears.
I had the discussion two times last week, so I think it is worth sharing here.You may have noticed, VMware deprecated image level backup of its vCenter Appliance (VCSA) with vSphere 7. What does this mean? Basically, it is still supported to do image level backup and restore with VCSA 7.0. But it will not be supported in future releases. Notice that U1 and U2 are still 7.0 versions. With 7.n, with n>0, VMware will not support image restore of VCSA any more. From my perspective, this step was taken because problems arise when restoring this Linux appliance. I have seen many appliances requiring a filesystem check after restore or crash. When you are lucky, everything works fine afterwards. If not, you have to file a support ticket.To avoid this, VMware offers a new way for VCSA backup. Since 6.5 it is possible to run file-based backups and restore of VCSA. Since 6.7 this can be scheduled. With this, new protocols are supported as well: FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SFTP, NFS, or SMB. Pleas
Block Sizes As can be seen from the field, optimal value for the stripe size is often between 128 KB and 256 KB. However, it is highly recommended to test this prior to deployment whenever possible.During the backup process data blocks are processed in chunks and stored inside backup files in the backup repository. You can customize the block size during the Job Configuration using the Storage Optimization setting of the backup job.By default Veeam’s block size is set to Local Target, which is 1 MB before compression. Since compression ratio is very often around 2x, with this block size Veeam will write around 512 KB or less to the repository per Veeam block.This value can be used to better configure storage arrays; especially low-end storage systems can greatly benefit from an optimized stripe size.There are three layers where the block size can be configured: Veeam block size for the backup files, the filesystem, and the storage volumes.Let’s use a quick example: The Veeam block size

It’s time to build the hype and readiness for V12! And as I announced on the special episode #100 of the Veeam Community Recap, I’m going to make a news hub here where everything you need for V12 can be viewed in one place leading up to the launch. Upon GA; I’ll also put a link to the V12 Upgrade Center (like I did for V11). I will target updating this weekly, and if you have a blog/external resource about V12 - be sure to put it in the comments below.

Good day, I am new to veeam and just installed veeam backup and replication 184.108.40.2061. when i connect to the server i am getting the error which reads “Failed to connect to Veeam Backup & Replication server: Remoting Channel Sink UriNotPublished. RequestUri is ‘/VeeamClientUpdateService’” Can you advise what could cause this problem Kind regardsSibusiso
Inspired by @Geoff Burke‘s post about immutability for Kasten with Wasabi, I decided to post the same for Veeam Backup & Replication. If you want to check out Geoff’s post, then follow this link:What/who is Wasabi?Probably Wasabi doesn’t need to be introduced. But if you can only think about the paste you get with Sushi, then you should check out their cloud object storage. Besides AWS and Microsoft, Wasabi is one of the Vendors, who often gets recommended for usage with Veeam Backup. The reason for that is their really competitive pricing, combined with great functionality/quality and low complexity.How to create an immutable bucketAfter registering an account with Wasabi, the creation of an immutable bucket isn’t complicated at all.Just make sure that you select the right region for your location, and also enable bucket versioning and object locking.Afterwards you need to create an access key. For testing purposes you can use the root account key, but for production you should cr
Good day all, hoping to find someone who has either seen this or may know where I could start to troubleshoot (I'll open a ticket with support as well, just hedging my bets here). We've used Veeam for server/VM backups for a few years and it's awesome.For workstation backups, we've used Carbonite (don't ask, we've tried to get rid of it in the past but got shot down by higher ups/non administrators) but it has been decided that we're not going to renew this year (got about a month left on our annual term).Over the last year, I implemented OneDrive KFM so that our desktop and documents folders are resilient and more "portable", which has made our hardware swaps much smoother and reduced the need for Carbonite.But I digress...while nobody actually said to go find a replacement for Carbonite (it seems to be the thought that OneDrive KFM is a replacement for backups,.which I know it's not), I am looking into alternatives, and Veeam would seem like the logical choice. So I've been doing som
I am new to Veeam and would like to restore the backup to a new location. The wizard takes me through steps to restore. In the datastore menu does it automatically create the VM with the new name. This is production server just need to know more before proceeding. Is this the only wizard for restore or after completing this wizard there will be another wizard to be completed. Is the live server online when the server is restored?
Anton Gostev has just announced the official support for vSphere 7.0 U3 in his weekly R&D Forums Digest. The only requirement is to run the latest VBR release v11a. And don't forget to update to 7.0 U3a because of the bug with thin-provisioned disks (link at the bottom).Onto the Veeam news next! Our QC has just completed the full testing cycle of VMware vSphere 7.0 Update 3 and we're now ready to declare its official support with the current version of Veeam Backup & Replication 11a. However, be aware that the original U3 build has a regression which can consistently cause PSOD on multiple hosts in cluster. This issue really plagued one of our labs to the point where we had to stop using it for testing completely. Luckily, right when we finally finished our testing on Friday, VMware dropped the new Update 3a build which supposedly addresses this issue. So be sure to download and use this newer vSphere build instead of the original one! As someone just told me, it always pays to
Hi, I have downloaded a trial of Veeam Office 365 backup after hearing how good it was in several places as we currently use another product but it's not the best in terms of features. Initial setup was simple enough but when it came to running the backup job, the performance was dreadfully slow. Averaging between 500-800kbps, it will take months to backup at this rate! Bandwidth is not an issue, we have a leased line and easily get 200meg down. Surely something must be wrong? I have read about auxiliary accounts but that option is greyed out for me...? I have the latest version, downloaded only last week. A bit disappointing since the rest of it seems to be pretty sweet.Any help is appreciated, thank you.
