Hi, I am the end user and currently subscribe to cloud connect from a service provider. I am running into an issue where I have totally crushed my bandwidth limits at my DC location because of backups. I would like to shift my backup traffic to use a different gateway, much like I am able to do with object storage, but I am not seeing an option for the service provider configuration to select a different gateway. Is the only option for my backup copies to go to the cloud connect provider through the Veeam server and not a different gateway?
Hi Team, I would like to verify if we will backup the NAS (which is located in Prod), how can we replicate it to the other site? via Backup Copy job?I believed veeam replication is for VMs only, but customer have NAS and must have a copy as well in DR sitereference; https://forums.veeam.com/file-shares-f57/nas-backup-copy-job-with-restore-points-t64904.html Thanks
For those that use Veeam VCC there was an online reference by Luca Dell’Oca which was a reference architecture and best practice on setting up VCC. He has now updated the online resource to v11 so you can check it out here - Veeam Cloud Connect 11 Reference Architecture - Veeam Cloud Connect 11 Reference Architecture (vccbook.io) Very great reference for those in the Service Provider realm.
Sorry if this appears twice. I thought I had created the question, but cannot find it.Veeam backup&restore has an application config file that is protected by a password.How to I test this password? I do have something written but I want to prove it is correct.I’m hoping to do this without installing a new copy of the applicationMany thanks
Hello All...We are moving from one Veeam Cloud Connect Partner to another. We have already finished the migration. We have disabled all of the Backup Copy jobs to the old partner and are ready to sever our relationship. However, we want to make sure that the VCC Partner does not have access to the remote repos. We do not suspect they will do anything but we just want to cover our bases. I know when a backup copy job is created there is a setting to “Allow Veeam Cloud connect partner to manage this repo”. Is it a simple matter of unchecking that box to prevent access? Or should we completely delete the VCC partner from the service provider window? We would like to avoid deleting them for a week or so since we still do not have 7 days of retention with the new provide so we want to option to get to that data if needed over the next week or so. So will unchecking allowing them to have access achieve what we want?ThanksDave
I’ve just been informed by support that Veeam does not allow restoring more than one file per restore job from a NAS archive repository. They suggested I create a feature request, so here goes. Can I suggest adding a “feature” that allows for multiple files and whole folders to be restored from archives? Restoring one file at a time is a ludicrous proposition if you need to restore 1000’s or even 10 files. We’ll need to find an alternative solution as we are already concerned about user requests for future data restoration from our already archived repos.
We are testing nutanix ahv proxy backup,Install and Backup job is very simple.But I think only snapshot task is available.In my proxy web console, Setting-Manage B&R Server - [Import backup] is greyed out. What point should I take? Thanks.Best regardsJaeseong Lee

I tried to update veeam 5.0... but it didn't work. I tried to install the patch and it didn't work. I uninstalled version 5 to install version 6 and it didn't work. I tried to install version 6 on two other stations and it still does not work. I get a windows installer popup when I try to install VEEAM and then it crashes. can you help me please.
Listen as I talk through what’s new and enhanced in Veeam Backup & Replication v11a.https://anchor.fm/virtualization-is-life/episodes/Veeam-Backup--Replication-v11a-Release-e181pln/a-a6jua5bThis is sourced from the sister podcast to the blog, Virtualization if Life! by Anthony Spiteri https://anthonyspiteri.net/backup-replication-v11a-release/
I was reading an excellent article by Randy Lee, https://www.randylee.com/misc/dr-temperatures, and wanted to see what is your DR temperature? Do the categories align to your business?What is your range for RPO and RTO? “Who” was involved in deciding the values? When was the last time you confirmed the numbers are achievable?
If you setup a VBR agent based backup on a machine that has 3 volumes listed in the OS (one volume being the VBR backup repository), and you set the backup type to entire computer; VBR by default will backup all 3 volumes listed in the OS, including the backup repository volume, correct? For context, in this scenario, the Veeam repository volume points to a NAS setup via iscsi initiator.
Hi, Veeam newbie here looking for recommendation on how to make optimal use of our network cards. Our servers are HP DL365s with 4 x 1Gbps on a single module and 2 x 10Gbps on a separat module. The plan is to follow the VMwar Best Practice document to allocate 2 x 1Gbps for Management and vMotion, 2 x 1Gbps for the VM traffic (VLAN 111) and 1 x 10Gbps for storage traffic to our NetApp (from where we mount the VMDKs via NFS). Our Veeam BaR server and proxy are both VMs and not physical and we have a separate VLAN for backup and replication (VLAN 333), and for storage (VLAN 222). A colleague says we are over-engineering this and backup traffic should just flow thru the same storage network. Any suggestions?
Good evening folks,got a question for you, hopefully the last one before Christmas, for an “issue” I’ve got with Veeam.B&R has a job that backups a list of vms, and that’s all good.Then I add a vCenter in the structure, and vCenter updates all nodes’ certificate.Ok.At this point, B&R Console needs a refresh and it’ll see all vms as new ones.Perfect, but.Next backup Veeam will save them as full backup, creating a duplicate of the vm in the backup file.Is there any way to avoid it?
I recall from one of the recent Veeam R&D Forums Digest newsletters that Reverse Incremental for Hyper-V is being removed or has been removed in VBR. This is useful for sending full backups to Tape, otherwise we have to do synthetic full to Tape (heavy use of virtual memory for our TB-sized backups) or create a synthetic .VBK (use more disk space).Which VBR version did Veeam start doing this? Luckily still on 9.5I feel like Hyper-V is getting short-changed ...
