I have used both. Internal SQL express, external SQL server, SQL server in an Always ON cluster replicated to our DR site. All 3 worked great, I have never noticed a difference in performance, and never hit the limits.Here are my questions about SQL and Veeam.Has anyone here ever hit the SQL Express limits?Has anyone here ever installed a full blown SQL instance on their Veeam server? Did this make much difference than an external SQL server?We have a DB admin, so using external is pretty easy for me, but I really have no clue when I'll outgrow SQL Express. I suppose I can change it up in V12 as well with the new option.
Hello, Recently, the Veeam B&R server was updated to the 11.1.0. (). When I first opened Veeam Console, The “Components Update” wizard was initiated and the update processes were started. The update of the veeam server failed with the status “Failed to upgrade host components. Error: 'Error 1714. The older version of Veeam Agent for Linux Redistributable cannot be removed.” What can I try?
Hello,I’m trying to add a Cluster object in a new Protection Group as `Microsoft Active Directory Objects` and at the credentials tab when I click on `Test Now` I get this error.9/23/2022 5:19:21 PM :: Processing Microsoft failover cluster XXXX.XXX.local Error: Failed to get cluster nodes
Happy Friday everyone! I’m back for another Fun Friday question: What do you use to lab/test/play with technology? Whether you’ve just got a preferred cloud provider, live on the “hands on labs” of a particular vendor, or have a substation in your garden powering a giant datacentre in your basement, I wanna hear it! I’ve currently got a 48 Port 1Gbps PoE switch with 6x 10Gbps uplinks, 2x HPE quad core servers with 32GB RAM each running ESXi and if I need to overflow I’ve got VMware workstation on my quad core 32GB PC, all sat under my desk!

If I were to create a new copyjob to replace an old one, and I want it to only move over the very latest restore point and none of the previous restore points that are currently in the repository; can this be accomplished by taking a new active full on the source jobs and then running a sync now on the new copyjob and telling it copy over the latest? If not, can this only be accomplished by wiping out all current local and cloud and starting from scratch?

Hi everyone, Today VMware have announced the 7.0 U3 release for VMware vSphere and Update 3 for vSAN 7.Announcing vSphere 7 Update 3 - VMware vSphere BlogAnnouncing vSAN 7 Update 3 | VMware Virtual Blocks Just to remind everyone that v11a is going to be the minimum required version for this as per the release notes:VMware vSphere 7.0 U3 readiness based on the pre-release build. The official support will require full regression testing of the GA build when it becomes available. This article will be updated with a support statement afterwards.This doesn’t mean that Veeam actively support this, once Veeam confirm compatibility we’ll know if v11a has full support or whether a later CU will be required to be in a supported state.UPDATE 05/10/2021ESXi 7.0U3 is now GA: https://customerconnect.vmware.com/downloads/details?downloadGroup=ESXI70U3&productId=974&rPId=74484As is vCenter 7.0U3 of course: https://customerconnect.vmware.com/downloads/details?downloadGroup=VC70U3&productId=
I ask this question which I think is very important starting from the thread in the forum veeam .There is a best practices in a small environment (<4TB) about using only synthetic full backup, active full backup or both togheter alternating?What do Veeam recommend, since synthetic is selected by default?Use only Synthetic full lead to risks in terms of reliability and consistency of backups?On the other hand, using active full requires a lot of space in repository.I ask you Veeam gurus.
After reading MicoolPaul’s question “Linux Distribution of Choice” the answers to MicoolPaul’s question seemed to be more geared for a desktop.So I began to wonder what Linux distribution do people choose for servers in a production environment. Are people’s choice the same for a production server as their desktop choice? Of course, when you’re creating a Linux production server you don’t install an X11/Wayland Desktop Environment.In my environment, there some RHEL and Ubuntu servers. Linux appliances, provided by a vendor, seem to be CentOS, Ubuntu, and SuSE.What’s your production distro of choice?
I have setup a new server on our network. Connected to domain, network, hyper-v installed and I am unable to add this server to the Virtual Infrastructure > Microsoft Hyper-V > Standalone Hosts > (server). I have my Veeam server trying to contact our new server and there seems to be a road block. I am running Veeam V11a trying to setup a new 2019 windows server. During the hyper-v setup process I have added the name and/or IP address, I have selected the last option (standalone) which matches the description of the new server. My credentials do work because I ran a test to setup a VM running server 2019 and I was able to set that up right away. For some reason the physical server is blocking the Veeam connection. Is there a firewall exception I need to add? I did attempt to manually add the physical server to Veeam so the agent might create its own firewall exceptions. I was unsuccessful at that as well.
For this post I planed to share some time and bandwidth comparison for backups in my lab. But it is some kind of difficult to get representative data in a fully virtualized demo environment.So I am very happy @Gostev pointed out this topic in his last Words from Gostev (Veeam R&D Forums Digest) from 8.2.2021. If you are not subscribed to this newsletter: do so! https://forums.veeam.com/I want to summarize important facts here:Backup performance per appliance (all-in-one box) doubles in v11. Revise and optimize basics: How are backup files written to disk. Shared memory transport engine, when source- and target-datamover on same box. Implemented full NUMA awareness Enhance the data movers placement logic to ensure they never end up on different CPUs. All this, and I assume much more, leads to an incredible performance. Veeam tested with an HPE Apollo 4510 Gen 10 Server – which is really a perfect backup target – as a all-in-one appliance. Veeam was able to peak at 11.4 GB/s (!) b

Throughout these years, I have been to many talks and events of Veeam, I have given many VMCE courses, and a lot has happened to me on this side in South America, the customers did not use Surebackup or Surereplica, they have told me that they did not know that they could use it, among other answers. And I think it is one of the most important features that Veeam has . Has it happened to you? I would like to read them …
Hi! Sometimes I receive Twitter Direct Messages asking how I can receive the latest Veeam News that fresh. It is actually very simple, on this quick tip we are going to learn how to keep up to date with everything that happens in the Veeam Knowledge Base, starting with new articles into the KB to updates or revisions of them, following those simple steps, we will be updated of any change or new support for X, or Y.In a perfect world, these steps we would have to make them for all the manufacturers that compose our Datacenter, as good practice, but for today I show you how to add the KB of Veeam How to add the Veeam Knowledge Base to FeedlyThe first thing I want to tell you is how to add it to your Feedly, which is probably your favorite RSS reader, at least mine, from the main Feedly website, we will click on the + icon on the left:We will introduce the URL of the RSS of Veeam Knowledge Base – https://www.veeam.com/services/open/kb/rss-feed and the following will appear:Once we subscr
I want to share my experience of an Active directory migration through the VB Replication software related to an Active directory environment 2012 R2 - forest and domain functional level 2012 R2.The customer asked me to migrate 3 Domain controllers from an old VMware 5.5 to the new VMware 6.5 infrastructure for a technological refresh.Given that the best solution from Microsoft is to create new VMs and promote them Domain Controllers and transfer FSMO roles.That said, there are scenarios like mine, where this type of approach was not possible as it was mandatory to maintain the same FQDN and IP address due to application configuration problems.Microsoft advised against demoting and promoting a DC with a different OS but with the same FQDN and IP, even if my environment was relatively small 3 DC one forest \ domain and not complex it could be done with the metadata cleanup procedure but the customer did not give the approval. So I have adopted the solution of VM replica. Scenario -----
One of my favorite new little thinks in v11: Veeam provides a PowerShell module instead of a PowerShell Snapin. Modules are the more modern way compared to Snapins. See here some details about the differences.Here is the list of available Veeam modules in v11: New in v11 are Veeam.Backup.PowerShell and Veeam.Teams.PowerShell. The first one replaces the PowerShell Snapin VeeamPSSnapin in v10. At least in theory, scripts should perform as before. PowerShell should import the new module as soon as one of it's commands is started. Existing scripts will show an error when they try to add the missing Snapin to the session.In the course of this, attention was also paid to the user experience. So there are now defined default fields shown in different commands. See here the output of get-vbrbackup for exampleIn v10 all data fields were shown. This was not very useful at first.The range of functions also increases with v11. We see 213 more commands than in v10. Most of them are for operating fe
Hi Folks, I have had a love/hate relationship with SOBRs. I am hoping I will be more on the love side going forward with the ability in V11 cloud connect to evacuate individual Tenants from a SOBR. I am finding that it is best to keep the number of extents down to low numbers, maybe even just 3. Also if using VMs, then one VM per extent otherwise your cpu and memory resources get divided by each extent. Keeping in mind that each concurrent task requires 1 core and 4gb of memory you don’t want this divided. Also if leveraging fast clone both on REFS and XFS you need even more memory. What has been your experience with SOBRs?, especially for cloud connect?
I work pretty heavily with backups in my current role, and we use your product and another product with some of our clients. The other product has a feature that is incredibly helpful and I think would be an amazing feature to add to Veeam. How feasible would it be to add a “Force Retention” feature? I really believe we need this for situations when we run into low disk space. In Veeam’s current state, if I run into an issue where I need to reclaim disk space, I am forced to break my backup chain and delete data. If I could lower retention on my backup and then force retention, that would effectively eliminate the need for me to have to lose data and break a backup chain. For example: if I am in a situation where I am getting failures due to low disk space, and I have retention on said backup job set to 30 days, if I could cut retention down to, say, 20 days, and force retention, I could maintain my current backup chain and then address the disk space issue accordingly (adding more dis
