It's been almost a month since the release of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v6. If you're looking for all the details of v6, then check out @MicoolPaul’s post: Until now no bigger problems were discovered or reported. There's only a known issue, that the CPU load in idle is higher then usual; no big issue, but if you want to solve that, there's a hotfix available: https://www.veeam.com/kb4294 One change, which didn’t get much attention so far, is the newly designed setup: I really like the new fresh look, compared to the old setup. It’s clean, modern and good looking. And it also updates the Veeam Explorers during the setup/upgrade process; in previous versions, those had to be manually installed. Want a comparison to the old setup? Here’s how it looked in v5. What do you think? Which setup is the better one?
Hi, I have one VBR Server 11 wherein I have created the SOBR having capacity tier of azure blob. While creating SOBR I have defined move policy with 0 days. My retention policy is 7 days with 1 full and 6 incremental. My requirement is to move the data onto azure blob automatically as soon as it reaches to performance tier. In my case data is not offloading to azure blob and veeam is taking its default counter of every 4 hours with 0bytes of data offloaded to azure. Can anybody help? Regards,Sunny
Hello, 3 days ago I upgraded Veeam Backup & Replication from 11 to 11a (126.96.36.1991).Since then in the notifications in case of Warning I’m not getting the Details anymore.Actually I know the details of the warnings because they are “historical” and I can still see them in the console, but why they are not written in the e-mails anymore? (see example picture attached, the last column is empty even in case of Warning)Thanks for your help.
Customer is running backups of their VM’s at PROD site to at SOBR and running a backup copy for that job to their DR site (also to a SOBR). They want to replicate some key VMs to their DR site as well and was hoping to seed those replicas from a the backup copy at the DR site. Apparently seeding replicas from a backup (or backup copy) on a SOBR is not supported. Trying to understand why not and how to work around this other than going back to non-SOBR backup repositories?
We attempted a disaster recovery test for servers backed up at Wasabi and 7 of our 8 servers recovered just fine. We have a decent sized file server (2.4 TB) that won't restore from the capacity tier storage. It gets to the same point each time and fails. We have a support ticket and have attempted some fixes and no luck. We would like to clear out both the performance and capacity tier of this one server so that it can create a new full backup at performance and then send the new backup to wasabi. What is the optimal way to clear this out? Just select this server from that object storage and select delete from disk on that server? Or should I create a new job with this one VM and run it?
I have installed Veeam B&R Community Edition. I have to take backup from x.x.x.6 to x.x.x.10I have successfully created Backup Repository for x.x.x.10Now I am creating Protection Group where in I am adding x.x.x.10 from where I have take backup. As soon as I Test the credentials (Either Local Host / Domain ) in both cases I am receiving the below error. I tried to OFF the Windows Defender but then also no success. Kindly advise
Just a quick post; the latest Windows Server updates for 2012R2, 2019 and 2022 (haven’t seen 2016) can cause ReFS issues. After the installation, ReFS volumes are shown as RAW and are no longer accessible; so if you’re using ReFS for your repositories, then take be aware of this when installating the update. Besides that, those updates can also cause bootloops for domain controllers and break Hyper-V.Depending on your Windows Server version one of the following updates could have caused the issue: KB5009624, KB5009557, KB5009555 If you’re affected then removing the mentioned update should solve the issue. Don’t (!) try to repair the ReFS volume, because this could cause a dataloss.This should remind everyone why 3-2-1 for Backups is so important.

Hello to share a new vulnerabilitySpringShell attacks target about one in six vulnerable orgs (bleepingcomputer.com)(1) New Messages! (checkpoint.com)Spring4Shell: Detect and mitigate vulnerabilities in Java Spring | Dynatrace | Dynatrace newsWhat is Spring4Shell?Spring4Shell is a critical vulnerability in the Spring Framework, an open source platform for Java-based application development. Because 60% of developers use Spring for their main Java applications, many applications are potentially affected.Spring is popular because it enables software engineers to more easily write and test code to maintain modular applications. Other libraries enable developers to become less dependent on enterprise web servers and, therefore, reduce configuration complexity and cost.Spring4Shell is one of three vulnerabilities published on March 30:Spring Core RCE (critical): CVE-2022-22965 a.k.a.

With the release of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v6 the Self Service Portal was also unleashed. In this video we run through a scenario where a new tenant is being onboarded from the Service Provider point of view as well as what steps need to be actioned by the tenants.
Veeam Backup & Replication supports and understands vSphere tags allowing the creation of Backup and Replication Jobs by selecting VMs to backup based on Tags.Tags concept was introduced in vSphere 5.5 and basically it is a label you can assign to any object (VMs, storage and so on...) in the vSphere inventory. You can assign a tag to a specific category to better identify a VM type or simply the installed OS.The use of Tags during Jobs configuration is pretty easy to configure. In the configuration wizard click Add button to add objects to backup. Click the tag icon to display VMs and Tags, select the item you want to include in the job then click Add.Using Tags you no longer need to edit a specific Backup or Replication Job to add or remove a VM. A simple click in the Tags panel of the particular VM in vSphere Client does the trick.No Backup tag?... why you should use it? Well, the No Backup Tag can be used to specify which VMs are not included in any backup on purpose. In big en
Happy Friday everyone, Interested to see people’s opinions on this subject. RAID for backup storage, most (I really hope all) organisations will use RAID for the storage underlying their backups. But, what type of RAID do you typically use, and why? Vote in the poll and then share any particulars below. For example, if you use RAID 60, but choose to have 4x stripes vs 2. I want to add, there are no right or wrong answers (even you RAID 0/ No RAID brave people!), but there’s always a reason behind the decision, were you after maximum density, improved write vs read, maximum durability, reduced durability due to multiple copies etc.

Hello Team, I am working on a project where customer would like to backup their M365 data (mailbox, onedrive, sharepoint etc.) using Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 and also backup Azure VMs using Veeam Backup & Replication. I see Azure has both these available in the market place. So if I use them and deploy them directly on Azure Subscription it is good enough right? Or should I need any other instance of Veeam Backup and Replication or Veeam Backup for M365 in on-premise infra or Azure VM etc.? Cause I saw this video - Here I see the Veeam is installed else where and we are trying to connect to cloud appliance. So I am confused
Hi team, I have a new backup I am running that is failing at the first full. It fails and says that it cannot find a VMDK file that is located in an excluded disk. The error reads: “Processing servername Error: File 'X.vmdk' was not found. This disk is a USB attached storage device, but it was added to vmware as an iscsi drive so that we can exclude it in VBR. I have double checked the disk exclusions and confirmed that I have told the job to only back up the correct disks (the disks that aren’t this USB attached storage). I have also checked the checkbox to remove excluded disks from configuration. The file is present in vcenter. I checked. I can’t figure out what is going on and why this job is failing due to a file that should not even matter because I have excluded from the job, the disk the file is located on.
This is more of a processing issue but . . . I have one VBR system that processes some rather large file servers. We’re going to be setting up Scale Out Repo to Wasabi into an object locking bucket.When Veeam locally merges the latest incremental into a new full, does it push the complete newly created full out to the bucket or is there some magic that happens where Veeam is only updating the current full that’s sitting out in the cloud. People with small internet pipes want to know. With a small domain server it’s no big deal to push 20gig but when it’s 25TB…..I’m also going to assume since Veeam is in control of the object locking and retention, I won’t have to figure out when things will be unlocked and the magical merge is going to happen.Thanks ahead of time.
Hi !I’m using the extract utility for test all the password of encrypted jobs and it work well. Just a problem when the password contain a double quotes (“).I pass the good password but it seem that the extract utlity fails when we used password with double quote.The main command i use is that one : .\Extract.exe -dir $full_dir -password $mdpI got the error message “Password is incorrect”obviously I already have verified the password and he is correct. Does anyone have an idea ? or do i have to change all the password that contain a double quote ?
HI,We are doing a POC on client with all instalation parameters OK.
