Dear Veeam Technical Community, By now, I’m sure you are all aware of the planned launch of the next major release of our flagship solution Veeam Availability Suite v11 on the 24th of February (Click on the link to set up a reminder to join the launch event). In the meantime, I’d like to collect a list of any specific topics that you would like to see any deep-dive technical contents from Veeam for, either in the form of blog posts here on the community hub, or on our frequent Veeam product webinars etc, in order for you to understand the new Veeam products and solutions or their key capabilities better? Can you please share your asks via comments? To get you started, I’m guessing the below V11 specific topics would be of interest? Continuous Data Protection Immutability via secure Linux repository Veeam agent for MAC Archive Tier with Scale Out Backup Repository Estimating AWS Glacier and Glacier Deep Archive consumption costs with Veeam Cloud Tier How to set up Google Cloud Storag
Hello friends, Can Veeam perform a file level backup by specific file name prefix? If a file starts with dept1 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository X.If a file starts with dept2 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository Y. Our retention policy require us to keep specific files for a short period of time while other files for a longer period of time. There are several file servers with TBs of data to backup this way. Is this even possible? Any feed backup would be appreciated. Thanks, Derek
Dear All, we have following data protection requirement, so looking forward for your guidance for creating a Backup & retention policy. File Server - at present we have 5TB files & folders currently backing up using Veeam. The requirement is that we need a 36 months of retention period of data and the backup job should run every 1 hour. The objective is to restore any file or folder with in the period of 3 years. VM Backup with at least 2 restore points with daily incremental and weekly full. Thank you in advance
I recall from one of the recent Veeam R&D Forums Digest newsletters that Reverse Incremental for Hyper-V is being removed or has been removed in VBR. This is useful for sending full backups to Tape, otherwise we have to do synthetic full to Tape (heavy use of virtual memory for our TB-sized backups) or create a synthetic .VBK (use more disk space).Which VBR version did Veeam start doing this? Luckily still on 9.5I feel like Hyper-V is getting short-changed ...

Hello everybody! I have a brazilian blog that I started to produce some contents about data protection and Veeam. So, I’m gonna write about Veeam too. The first post I wrote was about 3-2-1 rule and now I’d like to know what kind of subjects y'all think that would be interesting to write about? If you have any tips for me, just let me know!
Hi All,I have 3 destinations for my backup and it’s all in the same network. I would like to secure my last copy of my backup.

Hi, A feature I believe would be extremely useful would be scheduling SureBackup around the completion of a Backup Copy Job. Backup Copy Jobs aren’t scheduled the same as usual jobs so I understand the additional complexity around this however the reason for my request is simple.One of SureBackup’s primary limitations is Disk IO, if we create a SureBackup job to run after a backup job is complete, a Backup Copy Job could then start consuming IO to transmit this backup to an archive tier, Cloud Connect or to some other secondary repository. This creates contention for IO with SureBackup, impacting the ability to validate virtual machines.A key example of this behaviour is when VMware Tools fails to start within the traditional 30 seconds (I’m aware of registry keys that can amend this behaviour, but it’s just one example). If we could chain either BCJ’s to run after a backup is validated (so we know we’re copying good data firstly) or even inversely whereby we run SureBackup after the c

Hi everyone, I want to post a step by step guide of a migration from an old Vmware DC to a new one with focus on Migration \ Replication of an Active Directory environment, unfortunately the guide is quite long and over 50000, it is possible to increase it or I have to fragment my post on the blog?Thanks, I look forward to a kind reply.
A very interesting feature in Veeam Backup for Office 365.You can get an email alert when data from defined users is accessed in VBO V5.I think this would be a great feature for the “normal” Exchange backup, too.https://benyoung.blog/get-a-notification-when-restricted-user-data-is-accessed-in-veeam-backup-for-office365/ Thanks to Ben Young for the detailled description.
Hi, Hopefully I’m not alone in my wishing of this but I believe that Veeam need to adopt an MFA offering for their sign in systems. The amount of services covered by the Veeam single sign on is increasing and there are some services that would really benefit from the increased security such as the ProPartner portal. Also I’m interested to hear everyone’s experience with the “keep me signed in” setting for Veeam. I don’t find it keeps me signed in longer than a day on average. MFA + keep me signed in for 14/28 days would be awesome improvements this year IMO.
I just wanted to post about my upcoming book for those that might be interested in learning about Veeam v10. The book is title - Mastering Veeam Backup & Replication 10 from Packt Publishing. It is in pre-order now on Packt and Amazon. It will cover some of the more advanced topics in Veeam v10 and requires some knowledge. It will be a great reference for anyone wanting to learn more about Veeam. If you have any questions just let me know. The publishing date is noted for March 9th but I have fast tracked the chapters which are all done now so that we can move the date up sooner to February timeframe hopefully. I can post more news once I have some.

Hello community,I have an issue with a file to tape backup in combination with the usage of VSS.I have to copy the files of the RMAN Backups to tape. The backup files of the RMAN and SAP plugins are not recognized as backup Jobs with the tape jobs, so I have to copy them as files and not as jobs.The RMAN backups are running 24/7 - so there are some open files every time the copy job runs. And therefore I have activated the usage of VSS in the file to tape backup job.Every time the job runs an VSS error is given - "Shadow copy provider vetoed the operation"I did not find useful information to this error.Does anyone have some idea why VSS is not working properly? A reboot did not help. On the drive is enough free space (around 62,5 TB free of 105 TB total).
Just read a excellent and very comprehensive article about VMware vSphere VM quiescing. This is the necessary process - within a VM - to get a consistent status of the guest OS (especially virtual disk) and applications. So VM gets quiesced before vSphere snapshot is created. Because VBR uses (like I think any other backup software vendor) vSphere snapshots for backup/replication, I thought this article would be interesting to share. It is definitely worth reading and I highly recommend to do so!https://blog.zuthof.nl/2020/11/26/vsphere-vm-quiescing-essentials/Here a short overview:What is quiescing? Consistency options Non-quiesced Crash consistent Quiesced File-system consistent Application consistent Interfaces Veeam uses Network (RPC) vSphere VIX Usage in Windows VSS Script Linux Script Quiescing impact on app recovery Transaction Logs Quiescing impact on performance Snapshot based Impact because of vSphere
Hello All,I have a VM on standalone Hyper-v 2019 with a backup checkpoint that I can not delete.The checkpoint was created by veeam during backup.There is no opting in the GUI to manually delete the checkpoint.I ran the backup again and it was succesfull however it did not delete the checkpoint.What can I do? the checkpoint is growing quite rapidlly.Version: Veeam Backup 10a Build: 10.0.1.4854 P20201202
