Hey guys, in this link it says veeam cannot backup failover cluster with CSV and CSV will be excluded if you are backing up that cluster. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/agents/cluster_support.html?ver=110Is there recommended way to backup those volumes? Can volume or file level backup solve this?
We currently have a situation where we need to copy backed up files on a different subnet from the Veeam server.The backup files are on the proxy server in a different subnet and I need to copy them to a different server on the same subnet. Veeam is across a VPN so copying 1 TB of files from Veeam across the VPN would take too long.When I mount the files to restore it would be great if they were available in the VeeamFLR folder on the proxy server. Then I could copy them directly on the same subnet. Right now the files to restore are only available on the Veeam server.As a workaround I’m going to install Veeam on the Proxy server so I can access the backed up files without using the VPN.
Hey guys,A customer of mine has asked whether I could create recovery media for failover cluster but in this linkhttps://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/agents/image_create_before.html?ver=110 tells that I cannot create a recovery media and I should enable creation of a Veeam Recovery Media for such clusters with a registry value. Has anyone faced this situation and enabled recovery media with registry value. Also I referred this link https://forums.veeam.com/servers-workstations-f49/unable-to-create-recovery-media-for-server-t73845.html

Hi,Whats the best practise evacuate an extent with immutalbe backups?I need to evacuate an extent from an object lock repo with 7 days immutalbe backups.I put the extent in maintenance and started the evacuation. What happens with die immutalbe backups? They will stay on the locked repo?
Morning, I’ve noticed that Veeam have slightly amended the end of sale date for existing customers seeking to purchase new socket licenses. Previously, Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Backup Essentials and Veeam ONE were all due to migrate to support renewal only for socket based licensing on the 1st July 2022. This is changing slightly. Veeam ONE and Veeam Backup Essentials will still be committed to this date, however Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Availability Suite additional licenses will still be purchasable for existing socket customers through to the 1st January 2023. If you believe you’ll need additional socket licenses and have no intention of moving to VUL (you really should though if you can), be sure to factor these deadlines into your purchasing timelines!
Hello everyone,We’ve a huge Oracle DB on 3 clustered servers which is backed-up using EMC NetWorker but we’re planning to switch to Veeam.Any ideas on this plan? What to do before starting? What to consider while switching? Leave NetWorker running with Veeam for a while? Thanks,
I have recently added a standalone Hyper V 2019 host to Veeam infrastructure. It added successfully. SO i created a HWP for my customer, see the host and the network. When the customer creates his job, he see his plan however when he runs the replication job it fails:“Failed to process replication task Error: Cloud gate has rejected connection. Reason: Unable to establish target connection. All aliases have failed….” My VMware replications are running fine.Please help!!
Hi, I was reading the manual on Instant Disk Recovery Manual and I have a question.When you click “Migrate to Production” does this suspend the VM? The problem is that I have a VM which I restored the disk using Instant Disk Recovery, but on reading online further, it seems that when I click “Migrate to Production” the VM will be stopped until the disk has been completely restored. Is this correct? Thank you,Paul

Curious what y’all are doing in this sort of situation. I have a client with a rather large VM (95 TB, consisting of VMDK’s at 100GB (OS), 30TB, 19TB, 20TB, 9TB and 17TB). The repo (Synology NAS) is about 90TB of usable space with a second NAS at 24TB. The volumes are ISCSI presented as RDM’s to the virtual Veeam server running 2012 R2. Volumes are formatted REFS.The backup job for this server is split into three jobs...one for the OS disk and the 9TB and 30TB disks (active data) to the primary NAS, one for the 19TB and 20TB disks (Archive Data) to the Primary NAS, and one for the 17TB disk (Archive Data from an old location) to the secondary NAS).Current backup jobs are forever forward incrementals keeping 31 days of restore points, but as such, we have defragments and compactions running, but they take a VERY long time (the first mentioned job has been running for almost 16 hours and is at 6%, and that’s with only 3 restore points due to an issue I fixed yesterday where the volume

I’m trying to restore backups from my S3 object storage as EC2 instances in AWS. I’m receiving this error after the EBS snapshot is created:Importing VM Error: Failed to import machine to Amazon EC2: Using an encrypted snapshot as input is not supportedThe reason for this is the “Always encrypt new EBS volumes” setting, which unfortunately is mandatory in my company.Is there a way to work around this?
Happy Friday! Today I’d like to talk about technology. Whether software or hardware, it’s amazing the ways that it revolutionises our lives. I recently came across some technology I’d love to share, and get your own tech & stories. The technology I’m going to share is called Bionic Reading. It is a technology focused on complimenting the brain’s reading process, by guiding the eyes through text with artificial fixation points, such as bold text or different font sizing. It has been especially well received by people diagnosed with ADHD due to its ability to retain attention of the reader for longer. I’ve found this handy when used with technical documentation or other text heavy works, to avoid eye fatigue. Bionic Reading is available as an API, a traditional document converter tool is available, a Chrome extension to process websites for Bionic Reading, and then API is integrated into multiple RSS Reader apps such as Lire, Reeder 5 and Fiery Feeds. I’ve purchased Reeder 5 and foun
I was wondering if anyone have a nice Word-template I could use for reporting the results of disaster recovery tests. It doesnt need to be created dynamically from the data of the test. The report is meant for the board members and the CEO on a higher level. So its basically just a nice, clean layout (of course a Veeam logo somewhere...) but also look professional.
Hey guys,Now we all know the backup workflow for Veeam. During backup workflow Veeam instructs the client to create a snapshot. But I have seen in customer environments where backup jobs have resulted in failure or warnings where it says not enough space to create snapshot. What is the recommended solution for this outcome?
Hello, I want to ask about something belongs to Veeam Backup & Replication 11 Community EditionI had a machine with total size 4.3 TB on vCenter and all disks are on vCenter Datastore, I had to restore it yesterday to a specific old backup and hit enter and this deleted all current VM and started to restore from the old backup after that I got a call from the team to stop it (at 1%) and restore to some another old backup but when I was restoring to this one I checked the option Quick Rollback, I know this is not recommended at the current situation but that's what happened.My question now is it going to finish successfully or it will fail ? actually it's now 36% (1.6 TB / 4.3 TB)I just want to make sure it will finish with this checked option (quick rollback) Thanks and Regards,
