Veeam recently released Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v6, as part of getting up to speed with the release, I’ve been reviewing the help center documentation. Today I came across an interesting note within the backup applications section, something that was completely missing from the release notes.

It is quite interesting to say the least and nice to get exposure to another virtualization system.Today I see that patch 1a has been released for RHV so it is time to update the lab and continue testing. Information found here - KB4280: Release Information for Veeam Backup for Red Hat Virtualization 1a
I hope you’ve all been enjoying these Fun Fridays, I have nothing technical or even remotely Veeam related today, but just a funny incident from my Christmas gathering this year. I picked up my son and he swung his head forward at the same time. And now I’ll be starting my new job next week with a black eye.How bad/funny is it you ask? See for yourselves!It’s still getting darker and bruising more! Did you have anything funny happen this Christmas/year that you want to share? Comment below! And I look forward to seeing you all in the community in 2022! 🥳🥳🥳

If it is staging server how is it going to backup the SQL workloads without sql credentials ?
