VeeamOn Update Labwarz - How'd you do?
Apparently I knew all of the linux commands...and I’m not really a linux guru by any means but guessed well on a few of them. Also didn’t realize that I can do malware scanning in a SureBackup job until now.... Scored a 39121 which I think is decent? I see a bunch of folks scored higher, including @JonahMay. How about the rest of y’all?https://labwarz.veeam.com/
Veeam backup offload to azure is getting cancelled when backup runs

Merge two VEEAM servers into one
Hi all, I need support to find the correct way to merge 2 VEEAM Server into one.We have VEEAM A and VEEAM B, both with their data domain. for now these two servers are separate and we want to merge A and B to have only A.In my head we have to:Configure the DD of the VEEAM B on VEEAM A and rescan it. Configure a backup job with the VMs of the VEEAM B on the VEEAM A and, during the configuration, map the backup.if we take these steps are we OK or I’m missing something?Thank you.

Tape Media Set Naming – Configuring Variables
Hello,we want to change the naming of the media sets in our tape media pools and encountered a situation with the available variables.Our goal is to include date and time in the media set name in format ”yyyymmdd_hh:mm”The variable %date% gives date and time in the format “dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm” (ok, the date format is based on the system locale). But we cannot change the system locale for this…. 🙁With the variables %year%, %month%, %day% and %time% it should be possible to build a date_time string in the desired format. But unfortunately, the value of the %month% variable is the name of the month, not the numberDoes someone have an idea or a trick how to get the number of the month? Are the variables configurable? Just asking all the experts here before opening a support ticket. 😎 Documentation mentions nothing about this…https://helpcenter.veeam.com/archive/backup/90/vsphere/add_media_pool_set.html Please forget my question 😂😂😂You should look at the documentation for the correct vers
Veeam Agent - Backup too big for available disk
Hi colleagues, I’m wondering, whether there is a solution to backup a machine with Veeam Agent to multiple HDD disks. Unfortunately, the available disk size is below the machine size, which means the backup would need to “overlap” to the 2nd disk. Is this somehow possible? BestManuel
How would you deploy the Veeam Plugin for RMAN to 100 clients?
I’m prepping for the upgrade from Veeam v10 to v11. I have 80+ RMAN clients that use the Veeam Plugin. The documentation says the RMAN clients plugin version should match the VBR server version. Do I have to upgrade each client one by one?
How to do a lot of IT courses Tips and Tricks
HI Everyone. I seem always to be doing at least 2 IT courses at the same time. The reasons are many but I can enumerate a few: One I enjoy IT :), Two I am worried about getting behind, Three I want to get ahead, Four I am addicted to getting the course completions certificates and certifications because it makes up for my years of goofing off in grade school and all but the last year of High School. Back then teachers were not very politically correct so I was called a moron, a pain in the a, imbecile, lazy, annoying and many other attributes which in today’s world would land the teacher in court :) . This obviously inflicted me with deep impostor syndrome whenever I find myself sitting at a table with smart folks :).So I am always doing courses. Now no one really pays you do do courses so you have to somehow fit them in with the boring stuff. i.e. work. I have a few tricks but wanted to know if you had any as well. For one thing on most courses you can turn up the speed of the lecture

Veeam M365 - Modern App Only Authentication best practices ?
Hello guys,Following the Disable Basic Auth in M365 since Oct. 1, 2022, I m looking for the best practices to implement the Modern App Only Authentication.I ll not explain why it’s important to protect M365 datas @Iams3le already did it very weel right here: To improve security, I would use the least privilege approach and only assign the permissions which are required for the task at hand. But I m a bit confuse with the best way to do it.Regards the required permissions in the help center (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbo365/guide/vbo_required_permissions.html?ver=60), we need Veeam Backup Account Permissions and Azure AD application permissions.Is the Veeam Backup Account Permissions mandatory with the Modern App Only Authentication? In my understanding is only needed when we need to use the legacy mode.For the creation of the Azure AD app, we need to provide a user to login to M365. What kind of account do you use as this step? A dedicated service account or an admin user accou
Feature Request - Remove Capacity and Archive Tier Object Storage Restrictions
I would very much like to have ANY storage target be allowed to be targeted/used for a SOBR capacity or archive tier. As a for instance… the primary performance tier for the SOBR lands on a RAID 10 of either HDD or SSD and then rather than being forced to use object storage for the Capacity and Archive tiers it would be possible to simply offload to another repo that sits on a much slower but more capacity efficient RAID 60 array of disks. That would be much appreciated. That’s just one example of course, but the point is that I would like to have the system admin ultimately determine what they want to qualify as “performance”, “capacity”, and “archive” worthy storage. If they determine that based on their needs that the “performance” tier is a RAID 10 of SSD and their “capacity” tier is a RAID 10 of HDDs, and their “archive” is a RAID 60 of HDDs… let them be the judge of that. Don’t force their hand into using object storage.For all anyone knows, what the backup/storage admin want as

Weird replication job issue
Hi, everyone! I have a weird error popping up in a replication job for one of my client’s and I need some insight. We have a replication job with a number of VMs that are replicating to a local repository. For some reason, the job has started failing and saying the job can’t continue because the replica has been found in an inaccessible state. I’ll paste an example below. I have tried rescanning the repositories and rescanning the managed servers, but no luck. Retry of Replication job finished with Failed.

Tape drive cleaning alert message
TapeDrive alert: The tape drive is due for routine cleaning: Wait for the current operation to finish. Then use a cleaning cartridge. Check the tape drive user manual for device specific cleaning instructions. We have the cleaning tape in the library, and it is set to Perform drive cleaning automatically. Not sure why we would get the alert. Would ejecting and adding back to the drive resolve this issue?
Cleanup Backup copy job data already offloaded
Trying to clean up data from an old backup copy job, after deleting the backup copy job.It’s now showing under Disks(Orphaned) and Object Storage(Orphaned) - All needed restore points are available from Capacity tier(Azure Object storage). No more restore points are available to move to Capacity tier(because all have been moved already).Still multiple TBs are stored on the Performance tier, but if I select Delete from Disk, it tells me it will delete the dependent restore point also in the Capacity tier…? There are 3 restore points available on Performance tier, and 60+ on capacity tier.I would like to keep all restore points in Capacity tier until I manually delete them according to retention policy. Can I say Yes to this, and still have restore points available from Capacity tier?
Created S3 compatible object storage, but not available on backup menu
I followed the Veeam setup guide as well as Microsoft 365 to Veeam Backup to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage. Everything looks great, I have the following Backup Proxies and Repositories. I used modern authentication. No errors anywhere. However when I create a backup the only choice is the Default Backup Repository.What might I be missing here?
