Thought I’d quickly post this to end the week. Our current backup strategy utilises a virtual tape library with GFS with tapes periodically expiring after a set retention period. When tapes are archived to the vault, even though they will expire, the data is still recoverable when the tape is retrieved. Anyway, we needed to recover a folder that our user remembers working on quite a long time ago but was no longer able to find it. A quick look on the Veeam B&R Tape Infrastructure tab to determine which tapes were required, perform retrieval, import the tape, retrieve the data and folder recovered. Could not be simpler. Have a good weekend!
Most of you know vSphere 6.5 and vSphere 6.7 will end of general support in 15-Oct-22. You must upgrade vSphere 6.x to 7.0 before 15-Oct-22. What problems did you encounter during the upgrade process?VMware KB (End of General Support for vSphere 6.5.x and vSphere 6.7.x is on October 15, 2022 (89305))https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/89305
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
I am a keyboard junkie - use keystrokes rather than reach for the mouse if I can.I love Veeam’s use of the F1 keybind in any dialog window of Veeam Backup Console will bring you to the Helpcenter web page document specific to that dialog.I was playing around in the Job Session - detail window pane and you can use CTRL+A and then CTRL+C or right click any line or just white space in that pane and Copy to Clipboard.The resultant line(s) will be available to be pasted as text to your text/word/email application.Great. 💡 What about in the wider other views of Veeam Backup Console. 🤔When I have been wanting to show someone overview of Repositories I would screengrab... switch to the view and press WIN+SHIFT+S (brings up Windows Snipping Tool) drag select and then switch to application and press CTRL+VMaybe screengrab is not best for say something that might later on want to be searchable. Certainly OCR and the like have become more quicker and much easier available. Take Microsoft OneNote
Happy Friday Everyone! This week I took part in some Kasten partner training, which I’ve got to admit, was pretty awesome.It got me thinking, how ‘ready’ is the data protection community for Kubernetes? For this I shall bring back one of my favourite Community Hub features, THE POLL! So please, answer honestly, it’s anonymous after all! And contribute to the conversation with anything you may have achieved in Kubernetes you might be proud of, whether it’s the creation of your first lab environment, your first data protection policy live & working, the creation of your own blueprint, whatever it is, I’d love to hear it!
hello,i have two Vmware Clusters now both in 6.7 version i want to upgrade to 7 version but for some hardware reaseans i can’t upgrade replication cluster. i already have a replication job in veaam replicate VMs from the master cluster to the replication cluster, my question is if i upgrade the master cluster to 7 version is the replication will work ????
Well, this was an unexpected email in the mailbox this afternoon.Veeam are bringing back VeeamON Update this year! Be sure to register:Register for VeeamON Update 2022 Can tell we’re gearing up for v12 as that’s the first (and only) technical session announced on the agenda so far:With LabWarz set to make a return,with both snackboxes and a PS5 up for grabs as a prize, be sure to register! It’s a virtual event taking place on 3rd November for AMER & EMEA regions, and 4th November for the APJ region.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a best practices/recommended process for doing maintenance on VBO repos, for example doing hardware maintenance on the VBO repo server, and want to move the data to another storage location, either temporarily or permanent migration?Seem to be running into a lot of Jetdb errors, after we tried to figure out the best process
According to this KB https://www.veeam.com/kb4264 I successfully configured restore to AWS EC2 via endpoints and VPN. So I can restore VM from vsphere to EC2 via VPN.And now I have question :)Is it possible to make restore from EC2 to on premise via VPN, not thounght Internet?
Trying to clean up data from an old backup copy job, after deleting the backup copy job.It’s now showing under Disks(Orphaned) and Object Storage(Orphaned) - All needed restore points are available from Capacity tier(Azure Object storage). No more restore points are available to move to Capacity tier(because all have been moved already).Still multiple TBs are stored on the Performance tier, but if I select Delete from Disk, it tells me it will delete the dependent restore point also in the Capacity tier…? There are 3 restore points available on Performance tier, and 60+ on capacity tier.I would like to keep all restore points in Capacity tier until I manually delete them according to retention policy. Can I say Yes to this, and still have restore points available from Capacity tier?
Hi,Please can you clarify if it is possible will Veeam to do a backup copy job directly to say an AWS bucket, or Azure Blob? We want to move away from using tape, but do not want to implement Veeam Connct and all its associated complexity.Kind regardsAndrew Rycroft
Hi.I use restore from on-premise to aws via veeam. It works perfect but I need option to run scripts on aws after restore. Something like user data on aws ( Specify user data to provide commands or a command script to run when you launch your instance. Input is base64 encoded when you launch your instance unless you select the User data has already been base64 encoded check box. )Is there such a functionality?
Hello, I attempted to upgrade a v4 Veeam Agent (free version -- this is at home) to the latest v188.8.131.5208 and it failed, saying I needed to install Sql Server 2012 Express localdb, which was already there. (FWIW I successfully did this upgrade on two other similar PCs before trying this one.) I tried uninstalling the old version of Veeam and it still failed. I then uninstalled Sql Server Management Objects and CLR Types, trying to get a clean slate. The installer said it was installing the prerequisites, then died again. The logs say that Sql Server installed successfully, but either Veeam just doesn’t think so, or it can’t see it. The “endpoint<timestamp>.log” is showing an exception that just doesn’t say much of anything.[16.09.2022 14:28:53][INFO] Checking presence of Microsoft Universal C Runtime redist.[16.09.2022 14:28:53][INFO] 'ucrtbase.dll' module is found, redistributable is already installed.[16.09.2022 14:28:53][INFO] Checking presence of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Sy
Hello Veeam community!I have been trying to determine best approach for a backup migration from one object storage bucket to another and need some help. My customer has a large amount of data in the 100’s of TB’s of backups and a bucket copy will take 30 days which is too long. They also don’t have the space to pull it all back down locally to copy to the new bucket so that option won't work. I am going to have them setup a new capacity tier in SOBR and start new jobs going to the new bucket. But the issue is the old backups on the old bucket are left orphaned. i need to move some but not all of the backups due to retention policy. I was trying to determine which backup objects are related to which backup jobs but can’t determine backup_id via powershell. my thinking is this would allow me to “grab” the backups that need to be moved to the new bucket. Does anyone have a helpful tip on how to get this accomplished? Thank you!
Happy Friday everyone! So, next month it will have been two years since the Veeam Community Hub was first revealed during VeeamON Update 2020. During this time, there are now over 13.6k users, nearly 20k comments, and over 2.6k topics. Lets take a moment and reflect on those numbers, it’s VEEAMAZING. What’s also amazing is the visibility this platform gives to amazing content, even content that isn’t directly related to Veeam can get hundreds or thousands of viewsExhibit A: Exhibit B:Exhibit C:Now I turn to the community and ask, was there any particular topic or content that you were especially impressed with? Maybe it didn’t get the visibility you thought it deserved at the time and want to re-share it? Whatever the reason, please share your favourite topics below and why you like them! For me, it’s actually this awesome recovery post from @falkob that I wish had got more attention:It’s a scenario we never want, but will inevitably face due to one reason or another, having someone ex

I would very much like to have ANY storage target be allowed to be targeted/used for a SOBR capacity or archive tier. As a for instance… the primary performance tier for the SOBR lands on a RAID 10 of either HDD or SSD and then rather than being forced to use object storage for the Capacity and Archive tiers it would be possible to simply offload to another repo that sits on a much slower but more capacity efficient RAID 60 array of disks. That would be much appreciated. That’s just one example of course, but the point is that I would like to have the system admin ultimately determine what they want to qualify as “performance”, “capacity”, and “archive” worthy storage. If they determine that based on their needs that the “performance” tier is a RAID 10 of SSD and their “capacity” tier is a RAID 10 of HDDs, and their “archive” is a RAID 60 of HDDs… let them be the judge of that. Don’t force their hand into using object storage.For all anyone knows, what the backup/storage admin want as
I’ve just been informed by support that Veeam does not allow restoring more than one file per restore job from a NAS archive repository. They suggested I create a feature request, so here goes. Can I suggest adding a “feature” that allows for multiple files and whole folders to be restored from archives? Restoring one file at a time is a ludicrous proposition if you need to restore 1000’s or even 10 files. We’ll need to find an alternative solution as we are already concerned about user requests for future data restoration from our already archived repos.
