Hi,Task is to backup our customers Sharepoint365 to Azure storage.Customer is without on premise solutions except bunch of laptops, no mailboxes are used (mail is hosted elsewhere) , so plan is to use “Veeam backup for MS 365” from Azure marketplace, some blob storage and licenses of course. My question is : if i backup only Sharepoint how much licences do i need?Regards, Drazen

When you start your journey to becoming a Legend or Vanguard the road ahead can seem lonely and even frighteningMuch work must be done and in the beginning it is easy to become distracted by things on the side and loose focus You need to be careful not to break any rules or run into areas of dangerYou will cross many work rivers and then face a steep climbYou might be tempted to turn back and avoid the effortYou might think that you are almost there and then face yet another challengeDon’t let yourself feel caged inWhen you finally become a Legend or Vanguard the reward is in reaching new heights and seeing things in a different and omnipotent way!Veeam treats you like Royalty and you feel as if you are finally in the Castle that you deserve!#veeam100summit
Hi there,I’ve created a backup repo in my Veeam for 365 backups and also specified an extent to offload to Azure:Since that’s live I have no backup data on my local disks other than some sort of a cache… looks like everything has been pushed to Azure. Is there a way to still have local backups and then offload to Azure like we do with Veeam B&R ?Thank you.
Hi Experts, could you please help me for one of the important query.We have a scenerio. with azure as main dc and aws as DR DC. also we have iron mountin for long term archive. i am want to copy data from azure to aws also i need to copy data from azure to IM. could you please help with best practice . please help. with different options.
The Veeam Availability Suite v12 is fast approaching, when it arrives, you’ll be able to utilise a Postgres database for VBR and VBEM, will you be using this? Or sticking to your tried and true SQL Server? Further, do you use a standard edition of SQL or higher? Or still using Express? It’d be interesting to hear the split of the people the intend to move to Postgres and what they’re coming from!

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.
Most of us love and embrace SOBRs as well as hardened Linux repos for obvious reasons.Once in a while a SOBRs shifts out of balance because VBR cannot predict sizes of VMs and especially chains with changes.Therefore, for a non-immutable repo we have ways to rebalance the SOBR: KB3100: Manually moving backup files between Scale-Out Backup Repository extents (veeam.com)V12 will even bring us the conservation of space optimizations here: New in VBR v12: True per-machine backup files - vNote42This though is and will not be an easy task for the hardened Linux repo, as it will prevent files from being moved between the extents. I e.g. currently face a customers SOBR with one extent having 0% free while the others all have more than 80% free...Question is: Did you ever face this challange? How did you solve it? (Build chains from scratch? Disable immutability, reorg files, enable immutabilty?)
Hi guys,first of all, hope this is not a duplicated post.I would like to discuss about best options for DR solutions of VMware on-prem environments.Working for a small-medium SP, I can use our datacenters as target of Veeam Cloud Connect replicas.Sometimes it is difficult to make a large amount of resources (cpu, ram, storage, bandwidth..) available to the customer in a short time.Furthermore, in my opinion it is not the best approach in terms of cost optimization and resource efficiency.One solution might be to use public clouds as a target, but using VMware the options are narrow.What do you think about it?
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
Perhaps the Service Provider section of the R&D Forums is a better place to ask, but I figured I’d check here to see if anyone has an easy button for resetting MFA on an AD login specified by AD group for an Admin in the Service Provider Console. I reloaded my phone and the Duo app didn’t import my 3rd party MFA logins. Fortunately, I have other admin logins I can use.So far what I’ve gotten is that you have to apparently use the REST API (which seems silly to me if that’s the case, feature request coming up…..) because the user only exists in an AD group that was specified for access. While I’m not great with API’s, the the Swagger UI should make things easier. That said, I haven’t yet figured out how to authenticate with Swagger using an account that has MFA enabled. I might be able to get it once I get past that hump. I was hoping that if I disabled the MFA requirements, I could log in and reset MFA from the user access, but it appears to prompt for MFA once enrolled even if
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
When creating agents / policies in the VCSP console you cannot control aspects of the agents such as logging! It would be wise to allow the configuration of the agents, specifically the loggin from a central location otherwise, we constantly need to patch things and run all sorts of automations to make sure the logfiles are manageable.
Hi everybody, I’ve got a private instance (without support) of a veeam agent backup. Now the thing is that the latest VIB in the chain got deleted and now the backup starts with a VBK… I’ve tried to delete the backup job, created a new one and mapped the backup but still no difference. Also I’ve tried to remove the vbm file, but it still starts with a vbk. Has anyone got an idea how to continue with that chain?
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?
A data integrity checksum error occurred. Data in the file stream is corrupt. - Synology NAS, REFS, RDM
Had a client contact me this morning that is getting corruption errors on their backup copy jobs to the performance tier for their SOBR, but data appears to be making it out to their capacity tier, Wasabi, as far as they know (I didn’t check available restore points on that tier, but for sure the data is not sitting on the performance tier when I look at that filesystem).Background configuration is that they are using in both their primary and secondary datacenters a Synology NAS that is connected to their Windows Repo server as an RDM disk presented via ISCSI to their ESXI hosts, volume is formatted REFS, 64k blocks, the usual. I realize that NAS’s are less than desirable, and my standard procedure is now to no longer use REFS when using a NAS as the backing array, but this is where we’re at. I will point out that another copy job, not going to a SOBR but to the same NAS is copying data successfully. I can’t say for sure off the top of my head if it’s the same volume or if this is
Veeam has just published a new KB that details how to set up AWS PrivateLink for moving data to Capacity/Archive tiers. Check it out - KB4226: How to offload backup files to Capacity and Archive Tiers via AWS PrivateLink (veeam.com)
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.
