Long running copyjobs seem to "start over"
Hi, everyone I have some copyjobs that have been running for a significant amount of time due to a catchup-scenario we are in. I have noticed that on some of the jobs, it seems as if they start over. I check the jobs at some point the next day, and instead of the “Last Run” column showing days, I will see 8 hours ago, 3 hours ago, etc. The job will still be in running status. But it also looks like the job may not have started over. These jobs are immediate copy.
I'm Sure You've Head, But If Not...Watch Your SD Cards! with vSphere 7U2!!
For those who don’t go to the VMware forums (another ‘communities’ based vendor website) often, there was finally a VMware employee who somewhat unofficially acknowledged the issue of running ESXi on SD cards, specifically with vSphere 7U2. I say U2 because v7 and v7U1c, of which I both have run on DELL IDSDMs, runs flawlessly; and has for the past year.To read a little more on the issue, you can review the VMware Communities post here. The issue, it seems, has to do with their newly formatted boot partitions. But honestly, I think the mishap (Hosts disconnecting/hanging) is mostly due to a new vmkusb driver. VMW is currently working on a fix, though they’re really recommending orgs to start using ‘high-performance’ storage (i.e. disks) for the boot device moving forward. All that to say is, if you haven’t upgrade to 7U2, I recommend not to. If you’re running your boot on disk, I think you’ll be fine. Otherwise, hold off. One of the Veeam Vanguards, Luciano Patrao, did a nice little p

Garbage Files in Veeam and Cisco UCS
I ran a report in Veeam and found out that there were several garbage files in Veeam. But, we have CISCO UCS sentinal snapshots. Do you think that what Veeam shows in Garbage files could include the Sentinel Snapshots also? As, we do not want to delete the Sentinel snapshots in UCS which might be appearing as Garbage files in Veeam. Anyone could explain more about this Garbage file and which one we should delete.

Initial configuration Ubuntu Server regarding RAID and partition
Hello, I would like to try the immutable backup functionality of V11. A first trial was successful but I would like to continue. The repository machine is an older desktop PC where I have installed 4 x 1TB SATA HDD. How do I have to configure the initial configuration script of Ubuntu in order to realize a 100GB RAID10 for the OS and the remaining space as RAID10 for the backup files? BRFrank
Veeam Service Provider Rental Licensing Questions
Require some clarification on Veeam Rental licensing. Do rental licenses follow the same offering as the Veeam Universal License (VUL) offering listed in the Veeam Licensing Policy? Meaning, for every 1 license of Veeam Backup & Replication, they are offered in packs of 10 instances? We report per workload type (VM, Workstation) on a monthly basis to our aggregator. With that said, does that mean it’s a 1:1 ratio for rental licenses? for every protected workload you have to license per unit (VM, Server, Workstation).Generally a little confused with the different offerings between commercial and rental, and whether rental licenses follow the VUL offering.
Veeam Datastore Remaining Capacity
Hello Veeam Community, If customer have 500gb left in their datastore, how can I know or compute If how many days/months the 500gb will be? Assuming the daily trend average backup size is 900gb definitely it will reduce since there is dedup and compress in Veeam and have forever incremental sched. Thanks
Veeam O365 how to delete some specific repository data like Sharepoint, OneDrive, Teams, etc.
Hello, We have Veeam O365 5b (184.108.40.206). By mistake we enabled the backup job for the entire organization, so that means it includes Sharepoint, OneDrive, Teams, etc. and now our Repository disk is full.We need to do a clean-up of the repository disk, in order to leave just emails (users, groups, shared mailboxes, archives, etc.) and delete all data of Sharepoint, OneDrive, Teams, etc. Finally create a job only for emails (users, groups, shared mailboxes, archives, etc.)How can I do that?Thanks for your help, Omar De Souza.

Issues of Veeam backup on physical machine
Hello everyone,I Have been learning about veeam products and recently for practice, I setup a windows server VM & installed veeam backup & replication in that. I was trying to backup a physical machine and the backup job failed. I feel the reason is veeam is not able to identify details such as hostname and credentials. I looked various documents related to this but still I am missing out something. I even installed veeam agent on physical machine during initial setup. Can anyone help me out with this?

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions 2021
@wolff.mateus asked what Brazil community thinks about latest Gartner Report for Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions. I think this is interesting globally as well!According to Gartner, Veeam is about 1 cm (or inch, if you prefer) behind the leader in Vision Honestly I have no deep knowledge about other competitors. So I looked at Veeam’s Strengths and Cautions. Strengths:Instant recovery True! More and more workloads are adding to this feature. Like Database and NAS in v11. Cloud cost transparency Yes, with Build-in cost estimation. Like for Veeam Backup for AWS 3.0 Technical support Customers are very satisfied with support. I personally too. What is not mentions is the satisfaction level of the software quality, which is also extremely high.Cautions:Deployment complexity In large-scale environments, this can happen. Veeam roles can be distributed over a lot of Windows/Linux servers which can be physical or virtual. Veeam does a good job in distributi
