Happy Friday! Today I’d like to talk about technology. Whether software or hardware, it’s amazing the ways that it revolutionises our lives. I recently came across some technology I’d love to share, and get your own tech & stories. The technology I’m going to share is called Bionic Reading. It is a technology focused on complimenting the brain’s reading process, by guiding the eyes through text with artificial fixation points, such as bold text or different font sizing. It has been especially well received by people diagnosed with ADHD due to its ability to retain attention of the reader for longer. I’ve found this handy when used with technical documentation or other text heavy works, to avoid eye fatigue. Bionic Reading is available as an API, a traditional document converter tool is available, a Chrome extension to process websites for Bionic Reading, and then API is integrated into multiple RSS Reader apps such as Lire, Reeder 5 and Fiery Feeds. I’ve purchased Reeder 5 and foun
Morning, I’ve noticed that Veeam have slightly amended the end of sale date for existing customers seeking to purchase new socket licenses. Previously, Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Backup Essentials and Veeam ONE were all due to migrate to support renewal only for socket based licensing on the 1st July 2022. This is changing slightly. Veeam ONE and Veeam Backup Essentials will still be committed to this date, however Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Availability Suite additional licenses will still be purchasable for existing socket customers through to the 1st January 2023. If you believe you’ll need additional socket licenses and have no intention of moving to VUL (you really should though if you can), be sure to factor these deadlines into your purchasing timelines!
I was wondering if anyone have a nice Word-template I could use for reporting the results of disaster recovery tests. It doesnt need to be created dynamically from the data of the test. The report is meant for the board members and the CEO on a higher level. So its basically just a nice, clean layout (of course a Veeam logo somewhere...) but also look professional.
Hey guys,Now we all know the backup workflow for Veeam. During backup workflow Veeam instructs the client to create a snapshot. But I have seen in customer environments where backup jobs have resulted in failure or warnings where it says not enough space to create snapshot. What is the recommended solution for this outcome?
Hello, I want to ask about something belongs to Veeam Backup & Replication 11 Community EditionI had a machine with total size 4.3 TB on vCenter and all disks are on vCenter Datastore, I had to restore it yesterday to a specific old backup and hit enter and this deleted all current VM and started to restore from the old backup after that I got a call from the team to stop it (at 1%) and restore to some another old backup but when I was restoring to this one I checked the option Quick Rollback, I know this is not recommended at the current situation but that's what happened.My question now is it going to finish successfully or it will fail ? actually it's now 36% (1.6 TB / 4.3 TB)I just want to make sure it will finish with this checked option (quick rollback) Thanks and Regards,
Hi all,I would like to use Quantum DXi V5000 as deduplication storage appliance Unfortunately, when adding deduplication storage appliance, there is an error message, that there is no Veeam Data Mover service enabled on the virtual storage appliance To enable Veeam Data Mover service I need to install Veeam Data Mover on the appliance…. The issue is that I do not know default root password for Quantum DXi V5000 and adding non-root user to sudoers file didnt help.Is there any option to manually install Veeam Data Mover on linux based machine?
Hi everybody, I just asked my self the question: ‘what will I do when I need to restore my SQL-server-VM and do need to rollforward to the latest state of the database’. Assume you have a vm with a SQL-server. You’re backing up this vm every 5 hours and you have configured a transaction log backup every minute. Now something bad happens inside your vm and you know you have to restore the vm from a restore point the day before - say you cannot access the product vm anymore to keep it simple. Whatever you do (IR, CDP replica, normal replica), your vm runs but the database contains old data, you need to rollforward to the latest backed up transactions. If you just restore you vm with the networks connected, some applications might access the database and would probably insert data - that would be a huge mess. So you’d disconnect the networks, probably login to your vm to delete the database, then connect your networks. Then you could run the instant database recovery added in v11 (I lov
VMware Tools is a set of services and modules that enable several features in VMware products for better management of guests operating systems and seamless user interactions with them. Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, the guest OS will lose some performance functionalities.Impacted Product: VMware Tools for WindowsVmware has released some updates to remediate this vulnerability. The VMware tool can be directly downloaded from the VMware Customer Connect page. Do ensure to select your desired version. It can also be downloaded directly from the VMware Workstation etc.Issue descriptionVMware Tools for Windows contains an XML External Entity (XXE) vulnerability. VMware has evaluated the severity of this issue to be in the Moderate severity range with a maximum CVSSv3 base score of 5.8.How can this vulnerability be exploited?A malicious actor with non-administrative local user privileges in the Windows guest OS, where VMware Tools is installed, may exploit th
I recently added 4 new “Backup Accounts” to my O365 Organization to assist in a throttling issue I ran into earlier with running my whole organization backup job with no additional Backup Accounts.The Backup Accounts show as Configured with a green check mark.I started my regular whole organization backup but I don’t know how to verify that the added Backup Accounts are doing their job. Do I just look in the Veeam.Archiver.Proxy or Veeam.Archiver.Shell log files found under C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365\Logs?
If you are like me and can’t turn down something that is free, you should try out the Quantum DXi V5000 Community Edition download. What you get is virtual backup appliance that has all of the features and capabilities that Quantum’s physical DXi dedupe appliance has. What is wicked cool, a New England way of saying “awesome”, is you can store up to 100TB of data on the DXi V5000 using only 5 TB of disk capacity. This is assuming you see the full 20:1 deduplication of your data, so based on your data you might see less than the full 100TB. Like I said, I can’t pass up a good thing that is also free. So, I am going to download the DXi V5000 and install it in my home lab. I will also write a future blog on how to use the DXi V5000 with Veeam. Hope you take a look at the DXi V5000 and find it useful.
Morning all,Am getting this error when trying to push agent to win svr 2012 r2 :Error 1920. Service <display_name> (<service_name>) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.I have tried the solutions given in KB1059 but still fails, anyone with idea how to solve this? Regards,
I’m trying to restore backups from my S3 object storage as EC2 instances in AWS. I’m receiving this error after the EBS snapshot is created:Importing VM Error: Failed to import machine to Amazon EC2: Using an encrypted snapshot as input is not supportedThe reason for this is the “Always encrypt new EBS volumes” setting, which unfortunately is mandatory in my company.Is there a way to work around this?
Hello,I’m trying to restore a Veeam backup from Capacity tier (S3) into an EC2 instance in AWS.However, I’m facing a problem with the proxy instance. Once I start the restore process, the proxy instance is created, but after abou a minute I get an error:“Preparing proxy appliance VM Error: The destination would not be a correct SSH server.”I tried ssh to the proxy, but the connection gets rejected, while connections to other hosts in the same subnet with the same security groups are successful.So I manually created an instance using the same settings Veeam uses for the proxy, same subnet, security groups, AMI, and found that connections are successful, but only a few minutes after instance creation with that particular AMI Veeam chooses for the proxy instance (aws-parallelcluster-3.1.4-ubuntu-2004-lts).Now, the question is, is there a way to configure the AMI, the timeout or the number of SSH retries for the proxy appliance?Thanks!!!
Hello All,I have a VM on standalone Hyper-v 2019 with a backup checkpoint that I can not delete.The checkpoint was created by veeam during backup.There is no opting in the GUI to manually delete the checkpoint.I ran the backup again and it was succesfull however it did not delete the checkpoint.What can I do? the checkpoint is growing quite rapidlly.Version: Veeam Backup 10a Build: 10.0.1.4854 P20201202
Hi there in Virtual World :)Running Veeam 11 - We experienced a complete full “Files to Tape” backup when the daily Tape job ran for the first time after entering Daylight Saving Time (DST) last weekend.ALL files in our backup Disk repository (xx TB) - that means UNCHANGED Veeam backup files from the last 4 months - was all sent to Tape once again - taking several job-runtime days to finish - and filling up a lot of new Tapes, which we needed to supply into the Tape library.Have anybody else experienced similar issues?As far as I have read - Veeam operates in the UCT format - which should not be sensitive due Server time changes or DST - except changes in the local job time schedule:Daylight savings time - Veeam R&D ForumsDaylight saving switch changes job start time - Veeam R&D Forums We didn`t have any other issues running the usual VM Machine jobs to disk.This issue has been raised to the Veeam Support - and it has been escalated to their RnD engineers.So hopefully they wil
I’m looking at my Veeam B&R and all of my VMs show backed up and they even show restore points. You can see from the attached pic that my VM has 10 restore points. I’ve even done a restore from one of the restore points and it is in fact the VM from 5 days ago. Now, in Veeam ONE, when I look at my protected VMs report, I see zero VMs as protected no matter what time frame I select. My “other” reports that I run look accurate, but my protected VM report literally shows all of my VMs as unprotected, meaning no backups or no restore points for the RPO. It sure seems like I’m missing something. Only just now looking at reporting so hoping for some guidance here. Thank you
Can’t find an exact answer to this scenario. Is it possible to run a Linux vm (Ubuntu) on a synology (via VMM), and expose (or give access to) the underlying storage to the vm so that we can use the immutable feature?example:1: 40tb storage in one volume2: ubuntu vm having access to that storage somehow (I’m unfamiliar with vms aim synology)3: somehow configuring the veeam server to point to the Ubuntu vm storage so that it can use immutability
