Hi TeamWe have a challenge with one of our customers .They have requested for a monthly full backup to be stored for 12 month retention.They had requested for the same to be stored on cloud for the same considering onpremise storage space .We have added an blob object storage from Azure and created a SOBR with the same as capacity tier and onpremise performance tier. We have configured the data to move after every 5 days from performance to capacity. Configured a monthly full backup with 12 restore points to be run on the last day of the month.Movement of backups donot happen and currently 2 full backups have happened and have stored on the local onpremise repository.Support initially stated that we would need to wait for 2 backups for the previous backup to move but this has not happened.Now they have stated the configuration should be part of a GFS configuration.Nothing substantial interms of configuration has been provided clearly .Need some help or recommendations for the same .Not
The roadmap for LTO tape has been extended up to generation 14 which is projected to store up to 576TB of uncompressed data and a unbelievable amount of 1440TB of compressed data on one tape.It will be interesting to see if this can be realized and the capacity be doubled with each of the coming generations...See more here:https://www.lto.org/2022/09/lto-program-announces-extension-to-the-lto-tape-technology-roadmap-to-generation-14/
For those that happened to attend the VUG Canada or even those that will watch it later can please drop some feedback over in my other post so I can ensure we have great content for the next one. Any comments welcome on content, flow, improvements, things you did or did not like, etc.I am working on the next VUG and hopefully we will cover something like Orchestrator in this one. 😎Feedback thread is here - VUG Canada Feedback
I’m curious how long you all wait to update to the latest version, firmware, or software release in your production systems. For me, I would say I am on the early end of the spectrum, but I usually try and roll things out to TEST first if I can and verify for a few days. This doesn’t always work as there are times it won’t fully mirror PROD. VMware is one I’ll try and wait a little bit due to some pretty significant issues in the past I have had with host failures. Being extremely critical infrastructure downtime isn’t allowed AT ALL for us. Another thing I use to decide is the support I get. With Veeam, I have had so many good experiences I am confident they will resolve my issue. I also tend to keep my config backups and having to reinstall once or twice it’s quite doable in a pinch.
A customer uses the copy function for capacity tier to instantly copy on-premises Veeam backups (retention of 30 days) to object storage. They’ve configured object lock on the object storage (60 days) that has a duration longer than the local backup policy. As Veeam cannot delete a backup in object storage at 30 days, will it delete it after the object lock expires (60 days) or does the customer need to manually delete the files on object storage?My thoughts are Veeam will clean up those files once the the 60 day lock has expired, but got me scratching my head for sure
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.
Hello, Customer have an existing veeam on prem setup plus tape, they do manually tape vaulting - they manually transfer the tape from HO to dr site (vaulting site).What is the best and seamless approach so that customer no need to go to Dr site to do vaulting.Can we relocate the Tape from HO to Dr, setup veeam resources (server and storage) and have copy/move from HO to Dr then do the tape backup jobs? Thanks
I have scheduled a year end backup and it’s not working as expected. What I have done is grabbed all of my VMs and set them to backup at 10PM on the last Friday of the month of December. See screen grab.What is happening is that it’s running on odd and random days. For example, the year end backup started on Sept 4 at 4:51AM. It’s not chained to any other job. It’s not scheduled to run at any time other than what is shown in the screen grab, but that’s three months in a row that’s the job has fired off at random times during the month.Anyone seen this before or have any thoughts?PS: Let me add that both jobs show scheduled to run again on Oct 10 of this year!
Good afternoon Group.It is the first time that I am going to install veeam with a client, I have been reading a lot of the documentation and watching the how to videos, but I can't find anywhere that recommends me how to partition all the installation paths and on which disks to put the installation paths for 100 VMs. From what I've read, it would be something like this: 1.-Installation folder at least 40 GB in path A, in this path the database is installed, wouldn't it be better to install the database in another path? 2.-Write cache folder of at least 10 Gb in SSD in path B:? 3.-Guest Catalog Folder, on SSD in path D:, how much space? Hopefully someone can give me their recommendation.Thanks in advance.
Hi everyone 😊 With so much Veeamazing content being produced daily, it’s great if we can keep this all tidy. Once thing I’ve noticed recently is an increase in content that’s been miscategorised. When creating a topic, such as this one, the very first thing you’re asked is “What kind of topic are you creating?” Alt Text: Image showing the new topic layout, it asks the question ‘What type of topic are you creating?’ with two radio boxes, one labelled ‘Question’, the other labelled ‘Content’ Today I want to discuss, when is a ‘Question’ appropriate? To put simply, a question should be chosen when you are in need of a specific answer for your needs/information. This would be questions that have a specific goal in mind, and can clearly be defined. Examples include:‘How do I create a backup job to tape?’‘Where do I find the latest patch for Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365?’‘Why does Veeam keep reporting low disk space on my backup job?’‘When does Veeam plan to release VBR v12’‘What is a bac
Dear concern, I’m looking for a way (if even possible) to migrate a Windows Server 2012 Foundation(!) to an upgradable Windows Server 2012 Essentials or higher. Final goal is to get this system on a 2022 Essentials including all installed applications. The Server 2012 Foundation is not a DC !A direct upgrade of a Windows 2012 R2 Foundation to any other Windows Server version is imho not possible.Previous steps so far:New machine running main lates ESXi7.02 Migrate physical Server 2012 to VMware host. All test have been successful executed. Install Veeam Community main lates to the VM Backup VMNow my question concerning the restore. Will this be done to an existing VM e.g. running on a Server 2016 Essentials or even higher? What restore method will be applicable?highly appreciate your comments/hintscheers
Here we go, another Friday, another Fun Friday chapter!As an architect solution, we normally develop, deploy and maintain a vast number of data protection scenarios. We often take care many backup environment and occasionally, we have contact with many technologies and professionals.So, what was the stranger thing that you saw in a backup infrastructure?It could be anything:Strange kind of deployment scenarios. Bad behavior during backup executions. People doing strange things during the project.Starting now....
Hi Everyone, The new Veeam Legends were just announced and it got me thinking about all the effort everyone puts into the communities. I am finding it a big challenge to keep up. As an IT person you not only need to participate but keep abreast of the all the technologies and ever evolving knowledge base. I have had periods recently when I have struggled to keep up with all my commitments, social media feeds, work, life etc. What are your strategies to keep things moving and keep your sanity at the same time? I am certain that among all the very smart people here there could be some great systems, strategies that we can all benefit from.
Hi all As you all know, Microsoft is deprecating basic authentication from the first of October.So if you are using basic authentication in VBO365, it will no longer work.Personally we never use basic authentication, only modern authentication.Only when the customer is using public folders we are activating the option legacy protocols.What will happen with the backups of public folders after the deprecation of basic authentication when using modern authentication with legacy protocols.I assume that the backups are still working, except for the public folders. Am I correct?If so, what is the solution, alternative?Migrating the public folder to a shared mailbox or sharepoint online, so a backup is than possible?What if the customer still wants to use public folders?I know that Microsoft wants to get rid of public folders and is now in this pushing this 🤔.I already read the article on the Veeam forum, but no real solution or feedback from Microsoft.Public folder backup after October 1st
Good morning Community!I’ve a question to you folks, based on a true story.Do you often have not enterpries customers that ask you to NOT enable backups encryption to avoid having to manage “keys” in case of recovery need?And if so, how do you handle it at the security level?Having them not encrypted need to make backup repositories super strong and access notifications enabled.But. Other than that?Do you guys have any other tips to share?
Hi all. There is the possibility that this weekend I might need to restore all of our domain controllers in our domain (hopefully this does not come to pass). It is not a very active AD domain so hopefully but I might have to go back about 3 weeks to get around a problem.Can someone point me to documentation as to how to do this from within Veeam with all the DCs down? This would mean that no dns resolution will be happening (do I have to create a hosts file on the Veeam server to get around this?).Another hiccup is that for one of the DCs, I notice now that application aware processing has not been turned on so it is going to be restored as just a member server without any special processing for the AD database.Thanks.

Hi everybody!Im writing this question more like as curiosity and to re-think in my home lab, I've been using a HP 360 Gen8 with 128GB Ram and 2TB SSD with vsphere 7 to host my full home lab: 3 hosts Vsphere cluster, TrueNas for NAS & NFS storage, and pfsense for routing and firewalling, and a Windows Server 2016 with Veeam B&R.Now Im thinking in something more “electricity friendly” , but I would love to read some setups and ideas from all of you, and maybe mixing them up a bit we can get with the SUPER HOME LAB!thnx!read you in the comments!

Dear Veeam I need your help,1-I would like to know, How Veeam names each file. Exam xxx_Backup_2022-08-18T22018I refer to the last numbers. 2- I don't want to change the name of the backup job, I want to be able to edit or change the naming convention of the backup objects in the repository. like YYYY-MM-DD.
