Hey Community, I received a few messages from community members asking how to get notifications when there is a new content published (in this case we talked about “Blogs and Podcasts” category). I thought I would do a quick post about it. First, there is a possibility to subscribe to every category at Community Hub Let’s say, you would like to subscribe to “Blogs and Podcasts” category. To do so, you have to push ‘SUBSCRIBE’ button at the right side as shown at the screenshot below: Once it’s done - you will start receiving notifications about new topics created!Again, you can get subscribed to any category: whether it’s Discussion boards or News. You can also manage notification settings at your profile.If you experience any issues with notifications - please let me know!
I wanted to ask the community on here to get a discussion going about whether using VMs for Veeam is good, bad or indifferent? It is based on a question from the forum here - VM as repo - Veeam R&D ForumsI added my thoughts to this post as I disagree with some of the comments about having to use physical servers as the BP site mentions both physical and virtual. I also work at an MSP and everything we build is virtual for Veeam other than a few tape servers we have which are physical boxes since they perform better this way with direct connect to the FC fabric.Anyway just wanted to see the communities opinions here and not to put one or the other down just thoughts and what everyone is doing now.And go……. 🤣
Happy Friday everyone!Today I'd like to see what you're all talking & reading about.I'm talking blogs, podcasts, vodcasts etc.Have you got a blog that you're actively writing in? Share it below! Got a blog/podcast/vodcast that you read the moment anything new is released? Share it below and WHY you like it so much?With tools such as Feedly, Reeder and other RSS clients gathering so many sources of data, it's interesting to see what keeps you "in the know".For example my RSS feed is full of Legends, Vanguards, and even Veeam staff, so I can see what's going on in the other corners of Veeam. But in addition to that, there are some great sources of information that I love to read up on such as: Security:Bruce Schneier - https://www.schneier.com/ - A wholistic view of securityOrca Security - https://orca.security - This company has found some incredibly high profile AWS/Azure vulnerabilities with great post-mortums.Microsoft Security Response Center - https://msrc-blog.microsoft.com/ -

This wasn’t on my 2022 bingo card… According to MinIO, Nutanix Objects has been using MinIO for years without disclosing this, and after years of discussions, they’ve been unable to find a good faith solution to this. Therefore MinIO have revoked Nutanix’s licenses to MinIO software. I don’t want to misinterpret this as MinIO’s blog post has strong legal vibes to it, but MinIO are advising customers of Nutanix Objects may have legal & security risks by continuing to use Nutanix Objects. You can find MinIO’s statement here: https://blog.min.io/nutanix-objects-violates-minios-open-source-license/As of the time of writing, I’ve been unable to find any announcements from Nutanix relating to their perspective on the matter, via their social media, blog or news resources. If you utilise Nutanix Objects, you certainly need to question how this impacts you, and sooner rather than later!
I wanted to ask here in the community if anyone has developed a Veeam Tape report mainly for size reporting that they can share? I am looking in to VONE but the reports there are not sufficient enough for our reporting.We have a service that clients send to VCC then it tapes out for long term offline storage. So each month we need to automate reporting on size for each tenant of consumed data on tape.I am also asking in the Vanguard slack too about this so some of you may see this there as well. Also doing my Googling too. 😋
I foolishly used an IP address for a ‘temporary test system’ which became a permanent fixture.A change of network schema means the repository is now on a new address.It does not appear to be possible to change the IP address in VEEAM (I should have used a fqdn). I could start again with new backups - but is there a method to resume backups to the same repository after re-defining it? All advice welcomed.Latest v11
Happy Friday! We’re over halfway to 2023 (sorry to depress you!), it’s not uncommon for people to start a new year with goals or wishes for the year. How are yours shaping up? Are you on track? Have you had a busy start to the year but still have time to get on track? Share how you’re doing and any achievements below! For me, I knew I was starting a new job, so I wanted to make sure I passed my probation (I did), move house (I have), and either advance my Azure, VMware or Kubernetes knowledge and pass an exam in one of these subjects, I haven’t yet but now I’m getting into a better frame of mind I can start on this! I also had a great year with my blog last year and I wanted to prove its not a fluke by getting a similar view count this year as last year, I’m also proud to say I’ve smashed that 😁 Your turn community!
Hi TeamWe have a customer where we have VBO deployed on premise with a local onpremise repository attached to an Object storage.Customer was requesting for option to perform a monthly full backup to cloud and also a yearly backup to cloud .Would this be possible ? Please confirm on the possibilities .I have created an archival object storage repository for the same .Based on my understanding of the technology , only backup copy to archival storage can be configured which will do a direct copy of the existing backup job.

Hi TeamI have a customer where we have configured VBA for AWS backups across different tenants..KMS encryption configured for at the repository level.VBA integration with VBR using the VBA plugin to assist with centralized licensing and a single pane of glass for VBA management has also been configured.Customer was hoping he could create a backup copy job of data residing on AWS to an Azure or GCP bucket.Would this be possible ? If Yes How and if not possible would it be possible to configure a backup copy to a different region within AWS itself. Was unable to bringup any details of the same .Someone from Veeam presales had stated that it would be possible with regular password encryption and not KMS but how would this be achieved. ThxKarun
Hello,I would like to clarify the configuration of my capacity tier in my SOBR. I used a Wasabi bucket with object-lock enabled.I have a backup job set to run daily with 14 days retention and weekly synthetic fulls. I have a gfs policy defined with 6 monthly and 1 yearly.The immutability set on the capacity extent is 14 days. If my understand is correct all gfs backups that sit on the capacity tier still only immutable for the immutable days set on the capacity extent. Right?How do you protect this backup? I read a solution with AWS Glacier but I m not using AWS services.Regards.
Looking for guidance on which object storage performance tool provides the most reliable results. We’ve worked with COSBench and with S3-Benchmark Tool. Wondering what experience you’ve had with these tools or other tools… Thank in advance for your responses.
I created a test Backup Copy Job for a test to a new cloud provider, naming the job “provider test”. Now I am switching to that provide and even with a new Copy Job the Server is appearing under the test job name.How can I rename job listed under Backups/Cloud to the new Copy job name?
Please help with adding a Hyper-V host. Veeam 11. New Hyper-V Server > Credentials: Added Domain User to Administrators Group on Hyper-V Host. Veeam B&R and Hyper-V Host on same domain. Window Firewall Off:Windows Firewall On: RANT:Hours in, this is frustrating that Veeam doesn’t nip this in the bud and does not rely on MS technology (Ports, WMI...etc) to install, and shifts responsibility onto the customer and offers unhelpful dialog boxes and similar push back in forums.
Morning,I’m currently trying to figure out exactly how to acheive my backup strategy in Veeam and am scratching my head a little bit… Essentially I want to do the following:Run incremental backups weekly to disk Once verified write these backups to tape and delete the files on disk - These should be written to the weekly set in a GFS media pool Once a month perform a full backup Once verified, write these backups to tape and delete the files on disk - These should be written to the monthly set in a GFS media pool. As above for yearly backups.How does one achieve this? I’m a bit confused by the job configuration process as to how the tape jobs “know” which backup run to write to each type of tape?Any help would be gratefully received.
Hi guys, Hope you are well.I have a little question. Currently I backup my Azure Vms with Veeam for Azure. I have a Backup Copy Job to copy this backup on my VBR server Onpremise.Now I want to implement an offline backup from this backup copy with a tape job.Ideally I would like to have an externalization everyday of a full backup.Unfortunately the “virtual full” can be scheduled only once a week. is there a way to do it more offen with powershell script?What are the possibilities for my need. :D I thought to use File to Tape and backup all the chain but it will consume to much media...
Dears,I would like to ask if it is possible to let a sister company to replicate their vmware VMs servers to my replication site.Keep in mind i am replicating my VMs to a ESXI attached to a storage that has alot free space.Is it ok to let our sister company's veeam to connect the my esxi and they create replication jobs to replicate to my esxi aswell, so this esxi will be serving two companies as DR site at the same time and two different veeam servers communicating with it.
Hi,after backuping ubuntu ever since without problems, the first fresh installed ubuntu 22.04 came up with this warning message in our latest veeam b&r 11: Failed to index guest file system. mlocate was not found. As since ubuntu 22.04 the package mlocate is just a transitional package to plocate, there is no mlocate binary.So I did a ln -s plocate mlocate and expected the message to be gone - but it keeps reporting, that mlocate was not found. updatedb and locate do not show any errors:root@ubuntu2204:/var/log# updatedb -Vupdatedb (plocate) 1.1.15Copyright (C) 2007 Red Hat, Inc. All rights reserved.This software is distributed under the GPL v.2....root@ubuntu2204:/var/log# locate -Vplocate 1.1.15Copyright 2020 Steinar H. Gunderson...So whats to do now?
