Hello,Refer below setting:- backup job vm_to_disk with full and incremental keep 14 days- backup job file_share_to_disk keep 14 days, it should be full and incremental for file share backup- backup job vm_to_tape- backup job file_share_to_tape- two jobs vm_to_tape and file_share_to_tape backup to one tape setup with "Do not create, always continue using current media set", manual execute end of every monthrefer two jobs backup to one tape and it will require use "Do not create, always continue using current media set", t will append backup content to the content that was written to tape with a previous backup session. If, however, a backup set is started with a new tape, Veeam Backup & Replication will create a new media set for it.Does it mean jobs vm_to_tape and file_share_to_tape execute full backup when insert new tape? Best regards,
Today VMware released a new Important Severity VMware Security Advisory. The VMware Tools was impacted by this vulnerability issue (CVE-2022-31676). Resolution: Upgrade VMware Tools to 12.1.0 For details, you can go to below link.https://www.vmware.com/security/advisories/VMSA-2022-0024.html
In this KB https://www.veeam.com/kb4027 The Huawei Plug-In for Veeam Backup & Replication reached End-of-Life on 2022-04-22 and is no longer available. VBR cannot call Huawei storage with it’s API to complete the backup job with storage’s snapshots. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/system_requirements.html?ver=110In user guide of VBR v11, Veeam Backup & Replication does not offer integration with Huawei storage. According to the above, Veeam VBR cannot support any backup integration with Huawei storage. If the environment only includes VMware ESXi 7 and Huawei storage, what is recommended backup mode can be selected in VBR v11?
Hi all!I stumbled across an older post from Tom Sightler here: https://forums.veeam.com/post137077.html#p137077The content still holds true and to summarise:If using LTO5 or older (which hopefully no one is doing for new deployments): Disable hardware compression unless your Veeam backups have compression disabled For LTO6 and newer: Keep hardware compression enabled but don’t expect big savings, maybe put 2.6-2.7 TB on a 2.5 TB media.The reason it makes sense to keep it on is the new algorithm recognises already compressed data and passes it through.
Hi There!I've just shared this story in my VUG Group, Spain,But I wanted to translate it to English and share it with all of you,Its a Personal experience, Hi,I want to share with you my latest experience as a IT Infrastructure responsible, just a week before moving into a new company.August 10th 2022, enjoying my holidays, I was celebrating my birthday with my family, my mobile dings and I saw the message:“We’ve got a Virus in our Systems”I left everything I was doing, quickly went to the office to get a better understanding of what was going on, and execute the necessary actions to mitigate and solve the issue.Into my head I had the crazy idea:“Its just a joke” my colleagues are doing this to scare me and its a surprise… I was wrong.We confirmed that the virus was a ransomware called <DonkeyF*cker> and hit our servers and spread himself like gunpowder into our Servers.After a huge effort, we finally find the origin of the Infection and encryption, we took it offline, formatted
How would you configure the rule for this infrastructure and limitations.Infrastructure:HPE Simplivity - 4 nodesRunning Policy-based backups for near line native restores.Veeam Backup & Replication 11aVeeam Backup Server is a VM Veeam Backup Server is a Proxy Server Additional VM running as a Proxy Server 1x HPE StoreOnce 3650 33TB as the backup target. Wasabi for S3 Storage (25TB capacity) (No physical server in the environment) Enterprise license editionI would like to use the StoreOnce on-premise as my long and deep backup storage say 6 months and only use Wasabi for disaster with say 1 month - 2 month retention on there.Have Production VMs that want offsite, Dev and QAS can stay onsite.If I only use a Backup Job with SOBR for offsite VM’s how do I get that level of retention onsite and that level offsite.Or do I have to stretch to BCJ with SOBR, but that increases data stored on the StoreOnce as near two copies or data stored. Thanks. Appreciate any insight.
Hello everyone! It’s Friday again! Recently I saw this music video:(115) Silas Fernandes - Heavy Droids (Official music video) - YouTube At the beginning of music, we can see three sentences about AI: Artificial Intelligence is like nuclear energy - both promising and dangerous. - Bill Gates With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. - Elon MuskThe development of full Artificial Intelligence could spell the end of the human race. - Stephen Hawking They are 3 influence and smart guys that have peculiar and interesting point of view about Artificial Intelligence.So, I would like to know about all of you… What are your conceptions about this theme?Do you have any concern about that? Let's talk about it! Happy Friday!😀🤖

Hi,From a backup I want to try and restore a file. We go through the process in Veeam to browse and restore files but when the file browser pop up window appears it never displays any files from the AWS instance. I left it for a long time and it’s not go that much on the instance. Any idea why this doesn’t work?As an aside, we also can’t restore any instances either so wondered if anyone would know of a paid service we are able to use to help check Veeam is set up for our AWS account correctly. I see snapshots but not much use without being able to restore them.Many thanks,Bob
Hi,We have just taken a trial of Veeam for AWS backup. It expires on the 11th of Sept so we want to get a licence for this product. But when we go to the ‘Production licences’ link in the menu the page is not available.eg. Page not found. Sorry, the page you were looking for doesn't exist, was removed or the URL you are using is not correct. We are on this trial licence:Veeam Backup & Replication Sept. 11, 2022 1000 InstancesCan someone explain how we buy a licence and where from please?Many thanks,Bob
One of my customer upgraded the vSAN cluster to 7.0 U3d from 6.7 U3, unfortunately my customer reported the performance of some virtual machines is dropped. We have opened the SR to VMware GSS, but they do not find out the reason. I search some useful information in the internet, it may be related to a known issue exists on vSAN 7.0. I shared the following information to VMware GSS, now we are waiting for confirmation from VMware. https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-vSAN-Discussions/vSAN-7-0-poor-write-performance-and-high-latency-with-NVMe/td-p/2807761https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/88832
Hi Community, I have configure my secondary backup location as aws-s3 object storage. previously I used virtual tape backup to aws via aws tape gateway.

Hello,I'm using Veeam 11 community edition. I'm having trouble booting from the recovery media. First of all the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" is displayed in German. When I do press a key the system hangs at a screen with the blue 4 pane window image, a MS Windows image. I also noticed I don't get the option to include drivers when building the image. Please let me know if you have any ideas.Thank you,Frank

Hello,I have an interrogation, about how Veeam works with Forever forward Incremtal backup job and immuability.I know that’s not possible to use this kind of job with an hardened repository, even if you try to configure it, Veeam will pop up an error message. But how it work with capacity tier with object lock enabled?Veeam doesn’t transfer all data block to the capacity tier but only the new data blocks and metadata from each new backup file. (System similar to ReFS/XFS). I read the documentation about block generation but it’s not really clear in my head.If someone have a schema that would be nice.thanks
I am attempting Connect to Repository in community edition to my Google Cloud account. I have my access and secret keys and am able to connect to my bucket but do not see any folders listed when I browse so I am unable to complete adding the repository. I made sure the folder was created before I created the secret keys and I have tried several attempts with new/different projects within G-cloud. Any idea why it can see my bucket but not the folder? I have given the service account within G-cloud owner rights. Thanks for any help or suggestions

Hi,we have 4 different backup priorities and vCenter Tags which our VMs are assigned to. Now i would like to implement 3 different vCenter Tags for application-aware processing options. Unfortunatly i can’t remove the Prio4 Tag from aap settings, because it’s used for default. Whats happens if a VM has assigned 2 Tags in aap options? Is there some kind of hierarchy which option will be used? What would be best practise in this case?
Hi, I am the end user and currently subscribe to cloud connect from a service provider. I am running into an issue where I have totally crushed my bandwidth limits at my DC location because of backups. I would like to shift my backup traffic to use a different gateway, much like I am able to do with object storage, but I am not seeing an option for the service provider configuration to select a different gateway. Is the only option for my backup copies to go to the cloud connect provider through the Veeam server and not a different gateway?
It’s that time of the week again! Happy Friday everyone! Following on from last week’s Fun Friday, what’s your favourite tech YouTube channel or TikTok account? It hasn’t got to be related directly to backups, just anything technology related 😊 For me it has to be John Savill’s YouTube channel:https://www.youtube.com/c/NTFAQGuyI’ve used him extensively to help study for exams and expand my knowledge of the Azure platform. What’s yours? 😁
