Friends,I have a backup scheduled to automatically run daily to a network shared folder on a windows 2019 server, which I access through a share as the local admin of that server.After executing this backup, the hd where this folder is located becomes available, showing the error stating that the folder is not accessible with the warning of "incorrect function".That server is a virtual machine and runs on hyper-v.This hd that is unavailable is mounted on this virtual machine (hyper-v).For me to solve this problem I need to turn off the virtual machine and also the host, when it starts it goes back to normal.Thanks,JJ
The best way to deal with problems is to acknowledge them, and address them. Story time: I often say, there are two types of people in the world, those who’ve lost data, and those who are about to. Why do I say this? Because I’ve lost data. My PC is approaching a decade in age, with a motherboard that was always slightly questionable, it would periodically boot into BIOS/UEFI instead of booting, despite seeing the SSD attached within the boot menu, a reboot would always fix it.Suddenly the boot problem became more apparent, requiring multiple reboots to successfully connect. Then suddenly one day, it wouldn’t boot and wouldn’t see my SSD. I tested the SSD in a caddy and it was completely dead. No SMART warnings beforehand either. Thankfully it was a smaller OS device so after licking my wounds, reinstalling Windows onto a new SSD and a lot of manual retrieval of data from the various cloud services I use, I was back up and running. But clearly, a backup would’ve saved me from all that
Probably the following is widely known. But I did not know up to now and found out today. Maybe it is new for others too.After the Upgrade to v10, suddenly Linux VMs are not getting backed up any more, because defined guest interaction user was domain-based and could therefore not login into Linux VM. So solution would simply be to disable guest processing for this VM. Problem was, VMs were selected by vSphere Tags for this job. Fortunately solution is quite simple:Edit the job and got to Guest Processing and click Application Here you can see the selected vSphere Tag. When you edit this line, options are set for all VMs this Tag was assigned to. Press Add → VMs and Tags → expand Tag of choice → select exception VM Select new line and press Edit Set option as desired for this/these VM(s) That's it! This also works for custom Guest OS Credentials: BTW: If you suffer from the same behavior after upgrading to v10 (and probably to v11 as well): Curiously this is not a bug, it is a bu
Hello, We have Veeam Backup & Replication v10. We do backups of our file servers VM’s (in ESXi 6.7) with guest file system indexing option enabled. Also we have tape backup jobs of these servers.We need to restore an individual file from a tape media set, is there a way to restore that file directly from the tapes? or I need always restore all the vbk file to a disk before to do a file restore from tape? Thanks in advance, Omar De Souza.
Hey guys,With two weeks to go the hype is getting real for Veeam now.I saw one of Rick’s bloopers on Twitter and got an idea for this little mash up Avengers Infinity War / Veeam teaser. It fits a little too well IMO! I’d like to thank @Rick Vanover / Thanos / Ricknos? for being a good sport about this abuse.
Hi, everyone I have some copyjobs that have been running for a significant amount of time due to a catchup-scenario we are in. I have noticed that on some of the jobs, it seems as if they start over. I check the jobs at some point the next day, and instead of the “Last Run” column showing days, I will see 8 hours ago, 3 hours ago, etc. The job will still be in running status. But it also looks like the job may not have started over. These jobs are immediate copy.

Hello Veeam,In Veeam 365 backup for SharePoint online, I see that can backup the SP online sites and also has a category for “Personal Sites”.Can anyone explain what is these Personal Sites and where can I find them in SharePoint admin portal?I couldn't found any explanation even in Veeam documentation about Personal Sites.https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbo365/guide/back_up_sites.html?zoom_highlight=personal+sites&ver=60 Thank you in advance,Nikos
Hello, I would like to know what is the best design for Simple and Advanced.For Simple, I have 1 server with the veeam backup, proxy and storage. For Advanced, I have compute as veeam backup and a third party storage. if customer have 16tb source backup, (1) what will be the best design to position, have a Simple to lower the cost or position a Advanced Deploy since date is 16tb?(2) For Simple, what will be the basis to position the Simple Deployment? atleast 5tb and 10 jobs? or how many jobs or source data, so we can consider that as Simple?(3)For Advanced as well, how many jobs or source data? I am reading the article below. Thankshttps://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/deployment_scenarios.html?ver=110https://bp.veeam.com/vbr/
Hey all,I’m just working with a 30-day trial and really focused on backing up my MS 365 environment. I set up a test using my on-prem backup server as the proxy and offloading the data to an Azure Blob (also a trial). And it worked! :DBut it’s slow. Like 1.2 MB/s processing rate.My question is, has anyone setup something similar with an Azure VM as the proxy? And if so, does it improve performance? Thank you very much for your time!
Today’s post is heavily influenced by @Geoff Burke’s awesome post around weather forecasts in the terminal.For those who missed it, check out Geoff’s post here:Today I ask, what’s your favourite use of ASCII? For me it’s the Star Wars ASCII movie:http://www.asciimation.co.nz It’s not the full movie, but it’s still approx 20 mins long which is an amazing amount of effort to recreate! Well worth the watch!

Let’s face it, we live in a world where security vulnerabilities and threats are top of mind. There’s some new exploits in the news daily...and often software patches are required to protect our assets.I’ve talked to many out there and the consensus is similar: patches are a must but, the need to be tested first, and testing is terrible.So I ask you all - what makes patch testing so terrible?
