I am trying to make a second scale out repository (not overlapping with the first) and I keep getting the following message when trying to save it… “Summary: Failed to save scale-out backup repository: F:\Backup Copy” I got this message another time but pointing to a different directory, which linked to some orphaned backups. I deleted those in hopes this would fix it, but it just keeps throwing a different backup path each time. This specific one doesn’t even exist on my server under backup repos or disk backups (copies or orphaned), so I have no clue how to get past this. When I check the logs, all I see is this… [13.10.2022 17:08:05] <01> Error Failed to save scale-out backup repository.[13.10.2022 17:08:05] <01> Error Failed to save scale-out backup repository:[13.10.2022 17:08:05] <01> Error F:\Backup Copy (System.Exception)[13.10.2022 17:08:05] <01> Error at Veeam.Backup.UI.Sobr.CSobrWizardCtx.SaveRepository(String& warni
After a long time fighting with it, I just disabled the ping test and things worked pretty good. It appears when the VM’s boot, unless you are watching the console and click OK to the network discovery, it will fail. If you do they work fine and stay up.They are all static IP, auto MAC address from VMware. I do notice SureBackup gives them a new MAC, which could be causing this, but I’m not about to change 100’s of VM’s to static MACs in VMware as it’s not even concurrent if I wanted too. To skip all the time wasted troubleshooting, It appears when the new MAC boots up, it was hitting the private network instead of the domain network firewall. Odd, because it’s still “on the domain” with the DC’s in my Veeam Lab. a GPO added allowing inbound from the specified networks of my machines to the private network as well as domain network has solved this issue and Ping test is now working, along with RDP and not having to click the Windows notification. That was a pain, but happy it is fi
hi there, the last couple weeks i face a weird issue which i will describe below.i have Veeam B&R installed on a physical domain joined server 2012 r2. up to now i was able to add all other servers in the infrastructure (one more physical server 2012 r2, some VM servers 2012 r2 and a Azure file server 2019) without any issue.even a remote non domain joined server over a VPN connection.my issue is that i cannot add a non domain joined physical 2022 server located on a remote site which we have VPN connectivity, as a standalone server. need to add it as we are going to have a VN running there.please see attached, thank you in advance for your assistance.ps: i can ping the server and credentials are tested and working just fine since i can connect to that server using RDM
VMware vSphere 8 and vSAN 8 are GA now, anyone will try to test in Veeam v11?😁 https://blogs.vmware.com/virtualblocks/2022/10/11/announcing-initial-availability-of-vsan-8/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=announcing-initial-availability-of-vsan-8 https://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2022/10/vsphere-8-now-available.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=vsphere-8-now-available
Hello,our data backup policy is as following:incremental backup from monday to friday on a disk repository full backup every week on the same disk repository A second copy to tape is performed for all full data stored on the disk repositoryNow we only want to start a duplication to Tape of all full backup data that are only generated by the jobs started the 1st-2nd of each month. How can I achieve this data backup policy?Thanks for your help!
For those of you that were looking for ways to convert physical to virtual or V2V the new VMware Standalone Converter 6.3 went to GA today along with the initial release of vSphere 8.You can find release notes here - VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 6.3 Release Notes
anyone have experience with SOBR using a de-dupe device , then offloading to capacity tier ?so local backups landing in performance tier of SOBR, but then moved/copied to capacity tier, best practise is to disable Veeam inline de-dupe, so when moving/copying data to capacity tier, is de-dupe still disabled?
How can I identify VMs that were never properly configured for backups. Or somehow aren't being backed up at the frequency intended?
Create a knowledge graph with data from my Veeam backup servers in order to verify that backups were configured and running for intended VMs. For example: The data could be compared via query against data in your IT Asset Management that defines which machines are supposed to be protected.You may find it helpful to also have your VMware data within your graph
Here is something that I don’t see enough of. First, what is the fastest or average job you have? If you could follow it up with some hardware specs, or config design that would be super helpful too.If you can also add, what is the single best thing you have done to improve your Veeam performance? I average around 1GB on most jobs. I have it 2GB and the smaller incremental sometimes hit between 100-300MB but only for a few minutes. I feel I get decent performance but was wondering if anyone is hitting significantly higher speeds while they backup? My source SAN’s are good. IBM V7000’s and FS7200 flash systems. My Veeam SAN is an older IBM V7000 with all spinning disk which could probably use an upgrade, but performance doesn’t change much backing up to SSD for me. I have all fiber, and 16GB for everything but 8GB for Tape as that is the LTO8 max.I created about 8 Volumes on the SAN as per IBM best practices to use more of the cores on the controllers, but doubtful it makes a diff
We are around 2 weeks out from me starting the long journey to Prague for my first #veeam100summit.Covid spoiled the last couple of chances, so I am super excited my flights are booked!Trying to be brave and will likely regret the amount of work this is going to be but I thought for those not going or who aspire to apply for the vanguards or push to become a legend then this might give you an idea of what it is all about.So. what do you want to see?I would love your ideas for things you may want to see, people you may want to hear from, places or landmarks in Prague, food etcPing them below, ill try get as many covered as possible.See you for episode #1 in a wee while
I have two data center sites, one in Indianapolis and the other in Olympia. We have Dell Data Domains at both sites as our backup storage. I am currently in the process of moving our cloud connect storage from an old HydraSTOR to the Dell Data Domain. With the hydraSTOR I was able to seed backup copy data from a portable NAS directly onto the cloud connect repository as it was presented as a CIFS share. With the Data Domain it is using something called ddboost and I’m not sure how to run a copy job to import that initial backup copy data onto the Dell Data Domain. Has anyone else been able to successfully seed backup data onto a Data Domain?I need to…run the initial backup copy to a local/portable NAS on the customer’s site disable the job ship the portable NAS to our data center copy backup files onto the Data Domain configured with DDBOOST update the backup copy job to use the cloud repository enable the job to run confirm the job is running successfully and call it doneStep 4 is whe
As we’re getting close to the end of the year, I’m curious if anyone has heard anything about a new VMCE exam. I passed the 2021 in Dec last yr. From my recollection, I thought the exam only lasts 1yr. But, if there’s not a new exam, or is severely close to being released at the end of the yr, isn’t that cutting it a bit too close for those of us who need/want to renew?Thanks.
Hi colleagues, I’m wondering, whether there is a solution to backup a machine with Veeam Agent to multiple HDD disks. Unfortunately, the available disk size is below the machine size, which means the backup would need to “overlap” to the 2nd disk. Is this somehow possible? BestManuel
What is the best compression or dedupe you have received with Veeam.Feel free to expand on what type of job, compression settings, type of VM (sql, app, web server etc). If it is a file server what type of data does it host? For SQL I can get up to 7x Dedupe and 4.5x Compression I have a few application servers around 20x deduplication in my environment as well. The highest application server I have with an internal DB hit 46.8x Dedupe and 1.9x compression which is pretty crazy. The full backup was 13GB on a pretty large VM haha. I have a few big file server 30+TB that get 4.7x dedupe and 1.7x compression for example. Pretty good to see 30TB shrunk down to 4TB or so. I also have some 30+TB VM’s that get 1.1 dedupe and 1.0 compression . All videos however.
Hello guys , I was wondering if one of you know how Veeam selectionne a proxy when you leave the default option in automatic.Cause I have a remote site with a proxy deploy on my standalone ESX during the job is not my remote proxy that is used but my local one, so I let you imagine the backup performance.In my memory Veeam classifies the Proxies in groups : 1.SAN, 2.HotAdd and 3.NBD.Group 1 having the higher priority. If all proxy in group 1 are busy (max tasks used), Veeam switches to group 2. Group 3 is only used if groups 1 and 2 have no responding proxies.But in my case the remote proxy do absolutely nothing...Of course I changed the default settings to selectionne only this proxy in my job, but I curious to know the exact process.
Happy Friday Everyone! Yep, I’ve used the words “fun”, “security” and “compliance” in the same sentence, and I’m not trying to sell you anything! In line with cybersecurity awareness month, I want to talk about functional security vs security ‘compliance’. Simply put, security compliance is about achieving the correct tickboxes on a form, to say you’ve done something, rather than functional security, which is about strengthening a security weakness. Like a few of these, this is inspired by some tech battle scars… Here’s my example: The client wants to comply with a security standard. The timescale: Yesterday. I’m sure by now, most of us have had a client like this, they want the piece of security conformance paperwork for their bosses to be happy, but they don’t want to put in any work for this. I was asked to consult for a client requiring a firewall and some professional services to be utilised, easy enough! But oh boy, was it an interesting scenario when I got there. The client want
Hi,we are moving a lot of environments to Azure cloud and we already have 150 Blob storage containers configured to make the backups using Azure Backup. The problem is that they offer only 300 days of retention policy and i need more time for LTR and granular backups (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) for compliance and governance purposes. As we are studying to move the backup workloads to VAB and VBR at azure, but we felt that this feature for blob storage container its missing in the VEEAM tools for Azure.This amount of blob storage container it is just the begining, because aplications moved to Azure will use their individual storage account, instead of using a centralized file server to persistent data.Thanks a lot and hope you guys help us with this request.
What is the most challenging thing you have done using Veeam, or solved with Veeam? For me it was the Veeam Lab as I have some very odd networking requirements and trying to solve why it would work but I couldn’t get the machines to talk was a challenge. Some others were wrapping my head around retention policies when I first started and Tape. Now it’s all just day to day :) As for something challenging I have solved, it’s mostly internal stuff at my company such as our insane retention requirements and large data. With Object storage I'll be able to archive to the cloud and also to tape (as per policy), delete data from production and retrieve it in 20 years if I am required. This saves having to restore a full VM from Tape to get one file.
Hi all. I can't solve the problem. There is Veeam 9.5. There is a host on winserver2012r2. Inside the host is a virtual machine on Hyper-V with WinServer2012r2. When Veeam makes a backup, the virtual machine is frozen, that is, it does not turn off, the time counter does not stop. But the user is thrown out of the server, there is no ping. On the virtual machine, the role of the Domain Controller.1. Integration services updated2. Transferred to a separate task at another time that is not loaded3. Turned off the queue on the network card on the host. The virtual switch did not recreate after thatThe task starts at 22.15. Below Hyper-V-VMMS EventError. The normal state of the workflow is essential for the functioning of the virtual machine "RUVLD6ADSM01" (virtual machine ID BC4668C5-23A4-42E0-97BA-DB09654396FC).Intelligence. The worker process is now in normal state for VM "RUVLD6ADSM01" (VM ID BC4668C5-23A4-42E0-97BA-DB09654396FC).Error. Metrics Service failed to manage metrics for Mana
I was thinking in how to collect those “epic Phrases” you had heard regarding backup justifications, the worst ones, in my personal experience were:We don't need that, I usually create a copy on my Desktop! Backups are for weak IT, we use snapshots…Please share your best phrases to have fun, and share those “crazy moments” with a bit of humor!😂
File does not exist. Failed to open storage for read access. Failed to restore file from local backups
Hi All, I trust everyone is doing well. Please assist one of our Backup Copy is not running due to the below error. File does not exist: [********.vib].Failed to open storage for read access[******.vib]. Failed to restore file from local backups. Agent failed to process method (DataTransfer.RestoreText). Thanks in advance. :)
Interesting Scenario here. I have a VERY isolated environment separate from my production environment. The SAN is the only thing that shared between environments. No networking at all. Is there any license wizards in here who could tell me if this is supported, or if the following would be against the Veeam license rules? In this isolated environment we don’t have Veeam. We are in the process migrating all of those servers to our production environment , but I’d like to archive one to tape before hand to free up 50TBIf I were to do a storage snapshot of the VM’s volume from within Veeam (Same SAN) , I could then run an instant recovery to our production environment. While its running from the Storage Snapshot in our production environment, I’d like to do a VeeamZip, then export it to tape from the VeeamZip. It should be no different than exporting to OVF and importing it into production from vCenter which wouldn’t be against any license rules and it does save me moving 50TB 2 times
I'm trying to recover files in my backup using console -> Restore guest files -> Microsoft Windows...and it is giving the following message:- Connection Problems: No connections can be made because the target machine has actively refused them.and then another window opens with the following error:- Mount wasn't foundUntil last month it was working normally. What can it be?
