One of my clients (public sector) has high security requirements for his IT environment – including backup and storage.I found the following statement from VEEAM about the used encryption standards and methods in Veeam Backup and Replication:“Veeam Backup & Replication supports the following encryption standards and methods:Data EncryptionTo encrypt data blocks in backup files and files archived to tape, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the 256-bit AES with a 256-bit key length in the CBC-mode. This is designed to support the FIPS 140-2 standard. More information around that standard can be found here. As a part of Veeam Backup & Replication’s ability to generate a key based on a password, it uses the Password-Based Key Derivation Function, PKCS #5 version 2.0 as a part of NIST Publication 800-132. Veeam Backup & Replication uses 10,000 HMAC-SHA1 iterations and a 512-bit salt. More information can be found here. Veeam Backup & Replication uses the following hashing a
Hello, I have been asked by one of Veeam partners about my take if it comes to Veeam support for VMware Horizon VDI platform, despite the choice of taking the POC option I also chose to take your input on this. Considering that VMware Horizon VDI is based on ESXi, do we still consider the desktops(Instances) or sockets as unit of licensing? If so, is there any operational implication or/and limitation if it comes to operations and protection of the VMware Horizon components? Just to mention I was able to get this old article (posted 2011) but with many Veeam versions since then I decided not to fully reference ithttps://forums.veeam.com/vmware-vsphere-f24/vmware-view-best-practices-backing-up-vdi-server-clients-t6517.html
Full details here: https://www.veeam.com/kb4135 Shoutout to @AnthonySpiteri for blogging about this! Anthony’s blog post goes into more detail about this and is well worth a read! https://anthonyspiteri.net/veeam-backup-for-office-365-v5b/
Hi, One of my customer currently has “Veeam Availability Suite” License and has “Veeam One” Deployed. They did a Failover and Failback of a Single VM Manually using the VBR console and would like to get a report from Veeam One with the following information:Start time of the Failover. Time it took for the failover. Amount of Data Replicated during the failover. Start time of the Failback. Time it took for the Failback. Amount of Data Replicated during the Failback.I have checked Veeamone and unable to find a report that can provide this information. Is there anyway without using “Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator” to get this information. ThanksRavi
Hello,I need recommendations and perhaps solution on this issue. I have got to archive on-premise data to Microsoft azure.When I got to the point where I had to scale out repositories, I keep getting an error that the target repository is being used for jobs.I tried creating another repository but it got to a point the wizard asked if I will be Ref file type to format and had to stop because I don't know if that will format the entire volume that the backup jobs resides.Kindly help on what to do.Thanks.
I would be interested to know which tool for IT infrastructure you use for your or your customers environment. Here is a completely unsorted list of tools I use frequently in various environments:PowerShell with various modules like VMware PowerCLI (by the way, version 12.3 was released today) and Veeam VBR. RVtools. I think this is a widely known and used tool. Get a very detailed inventory of your vSphere environment within a few mouse-clicks. New version 4.1.2 was released yesterday. Brocade SANHealth. I think, this tool is not that well known. For me, it is THE tool for Fibre Channel fabric documentation. Just install the tool, put in data of FC switches, capture date. Then upload to brocade (respectively Broadcom). After a few hours you get a link to a extremely detailed, fully automatically generated documentation (Excel und Visio). As an alternative to putty, I prefer MobaXterm. There is a free and a paid version. It offers features like sending commands to multiple sessions
Hi all!With the release of Veeam Backup & Replication version 11, the following KB article is continuously updated to reflect the most recent patch available: KB4126: Release Notes for Veeam Backup & Replication 11 Cumulative Patches.Since there is no easy way to subscribe to Veeam updates in general, I have personally setup a monitor on https://visualping.io. It has been very helpful to configure a monitor to this support article, to get notified via e-mail every time there is a new patch available.As a bonus, you have 65 free scans per month. This should be sufficient for two endpoints with daily scanning.I hope you find this helpful.Best regards,Preben
Hi Folks, I have had a love/hate relationship with SOBRs. I am hoping I will be more on the love side going forward with the ability in V11 cloud connect to evacuate individual Tenants from a SOBR. I am finding that it is best to keep the number of extents down to low numbers, maybe even just 3. Also if using VMs, then one VM per extent otherwise your cpu and memory resources get divided by each extent. Keeping in mind that each concurrent task requires 1 core and 4gb of memory you don’t want this divided. Also if leveraging fast clone both on REFS and XFS you need even more memory. What has been your experience with SOBRs?, especially for cloud connect?
Good afternoon,I am with V10 version With Enterprise manager I try to hide jobs and vm depending on user.ExampleUser1 : could see Job1 and vm Vm1 and vm 2User2: could see Job2 and vm Vm3 We have two roles : Portal administrator and portal user. With the role portal user, I filtered the vm for each user. It works fine the User1 sees vm1 and vm2 and User2 sees VM3.But the two users see job1 and job2. My question is how do we filter the jobs by users as we can do with vm? Regards
Hello, We have Veeam Backup & Replication v10. We do backups of our file servers VM’s (in ESXi 6.7) with guest file system indexing option enabled. Also we have tape backup jobs of these servers.We need to restore an individual file from a tape media set, is there a way to restore that file directly from the tapes? or I need always restore all the vbk file to a disk before to do a file restore from tape? Thanks in advance, Omar De Souza.
Happy World Backup Day, Veeam Community! First of all, come and join us today for the celebration of World Backup Day with LinkedIn Live event hosted by @Rick Vanover and Didier Van Hoye, Microsoft MVP and Veeam Vanguard Secondly, you have probably noticed Alfred the Cat on the new home page header banner? (YES, he’s back!) Well, there are some easter eggs hidden, each based on certain Veeam features and technologies! Will you be able to find them all? Share your answers in the comments and let's see who'll collect them all first!
A lot of us are really busy and while it is nice to read the “create your own Kubernetes” posts, sometimes you just don’t have time to do so. If you just want to jump in and learn to swim as @Rick Vanover said in the last Weekly recap 20 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wn7m1F3lvI then there are some ready to go free clusters that you can play around with. My favorite is the O’reilly Katacoda kubernetes playgroud https://www.katacoda.com/courses/kubernetes/playground but many big cloud providers will give you some free time to evaluate as well. A nice full list has also been composed by a github user name salaboy and learnk8s with various contributors here https://github.com/learnk8s/free-kubernetes Kubernetes is very much a hands on technology. The more you practice the easier it gets. Good luck and most importantly have fun!!
What does “Warning: some restore points failed to process” mean? I got this warning on a cloud copyjob and I can’t really find out what specifically it means or why it happened? Does this mean the copyjob failed or in a disaster recovery scenario that I’d have missing data that I couldn’t restore to from the cloud because it didn’t copy over? I ran a new sync and it was successful, but I am wondering what this warning means and how can I present it in the future?
Hi Everyone, I have been documenting the learning curve and journey and continued on to exploring what managed Kubernetes offerings there are from the public clouds, this is not the end of my content creation on this topic but it covers the main 3 (at least in my region) Getting Started with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)Getting Started with Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) - Azure CLI Getting Started with Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) - Azure PowerShell Getting Started with Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) I will keep adding additional links as I get them published, as always open to feedback here. Expect to see some OpenShift being covered and VMware Tanzu options soon enough.

Veeam Backup & Recovery 9.5 (VMWare)When setting up my Backup Jobs. “I Enable backup file encryption.” If I am correct this would mean that the file is “Encrypted at Rest” on the backup disk.After 30 days I move this to a Amazon S3 Bucket. I have set up the Capacity Tier to “Encrypt data uploaded to object storage”. Is the Backup “Encrypted at Rest” in the S3 Bucket or do I need to turn on disk Encryption in Amazon?Is there some documentation that explains the above scenario?
Hi, Has any one had the below error on the new CDP Proxy function on B&R v11?Source Proxy Replicator error: encryption; Cannot decrypt message, possible due mismatching key.I can see that the disk are replicating, but now and then it shows the error? Note this is a new CDP job
