For legal purpose we have to make a full backup of one of the server and store it in either the server or tape for infinite retention. If I click on inventory, vcenter server, server name, there are few options like Quick backup, add to backup job….. Can the copy of the backup job be stored for infinite retention in the server since we do not have tape copy activated. Can this job be also used to restore files from backup.Backup server stores files(.vbm and .vbk) for 5 months but the edit backup job retention policy is 12 days. Not sure how the files in the backup server are stored for 5 months.
Hypothetically - How would you go about restoring data with infinite retention 30/50/100 years from now
This little thread got me thinking, and makes me wonder….if you’re tasked with backing up data with a 50 year or 100 year or infinite data retention, this is more than just running a backup and storing it somewhere. Because what good is a backup that is 30 years old if you have no infrastructure to do anything with it? On a somewhat related topic, I once had a client that needed to keep their Dell/Quest RapidRecovery backups for 7 or 10 years. They were looking to move to something like a Dell IDPA appliance (I proposed Veeam with a DataDomain). But the question what, what do you do to keep the servers and MDxxxx DAS’s appliances with the data available for the next 7-10 years? Or do you somehow convert or restore all of the data and move it to your new backup solution whenever there is some sort of major change? And then avoiding bit rot?Hypothetically speaking, or practically speaking for you folks that are tasked with such extraordinary retention policies, what is your plan for
HelloSorry if this is a basic question or a topic already discuss in the forum, but I really need advices regarding GFS before doing an upgrade from version 10.0.0.1 to version 11 .In the documentation it’s said: “Do you have backup copy jobs with synthetic GFS full backups? Before the upgrade, make sure that all GFS candidates (incremental restore points created on days when GFS was scheduled and that are expected to be transformed into full GFS restore points) are already transformed into GFS restore points. To force the backup copy job to transform all GFS candidates, you can temporarily decrease the short-term retention to a value less than the number of restore points between the latest restore point and the most recent GFS candidate and then wait till all the candidates are transformed.” I’m not sure what they meen by “short-term retention” This is my config:thanks for your help
k10toolsTried to use cephfs provisioner: rook-ceph.cephfs.csi.ceph.com by the “k10tools” command and portal. Both the result is failed to create snapshot and backup with PVC and data. May I know if there is any method to use cephfs provisioner with Kasten to backup? And, Since the PVC has to set AccessMode as ReadWriteMany, the rook-ceph.cephfs.csi.ceph.com provisioner can’t be insteaded with rook-ceph.rbd.csi.ceph.com
Hi All,I’m receiving this error on within Veeam running a Backup Copy to a QNAP. I’m a novice at Veeam so any help is appreciated. Looking in the C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup folder, which log file in particular will detail where exactly this error is happening? Below is the summary of the Failed ‘Backup Copy to QNAP’ job.
Hi allWhat is the best practice to physically rotate backup drives.I have a remote system that I will go to once a month to change or rotate the drives. So ejecting the drive and connecting the new drive with out effecting the backup repositry.System is a physical Windows 10 Pro with Veeam Backup & Replication not VM. Thanks,
Hi guys, have you ever happened to upgrade your servers, for example Veeam for Office 365, and then hear customers complain because they can no longer connect to the provider using Veeam explorers?How frustrating and tiring is it to have to update all clients' explorers every time!Please Veeam, allow us to update them remotely with VSPC! :) Marco

Hi, I had an unexpected network error on my windows server 2012R2 and Veeam Agent for Windows ver. 5.0.3I have setted “keep backups for 35 days” and I have on my nas 2 Tb free out of 3 Tb total. Now, I have 34 backups and when i run a backup, after about a minute, I get “processing finished with errors” and “error: unexpected network error. Failed to read data from the file”. I tried to free up some space, to stop and start Veeam agent service, to restart nas, to modify the number of backups (trying 30 and 40) but every time i got the same error. what else can i do?
I know this question has been mentioned several times on various boards, but I have not found one specifically for SQL Express.Anyone have an idea?Unable to truncate Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs.

Hi,We are having some backups copied to an AWS bucket using Veeam Backup and Replication 11. The backups have been copying up to the bucket okay but today I was going to practice restorations and am a little confused about whether I did a restore from the internet or from the performance tier. The log said the restore was from AWS Veeam Object1 which should be the Amazon server. It seemed kind of quick. I was expecting it to take hours for a small server. It was 34 minutes. Maybe de-duplication is really good.This was in the log:Restoring Hard disk 1 (40 GB) : 30.3 GB restored at 18 MB/s [nbd] 3.9 GB downloaded from capacity tier, 9.9 GB copied from performance tierSo far I haven’t seen any documentation that specifically walks us through restoration from a bucket.It’s possible I’m still thinking of our network speed with a 2015 frame of mind. I want to be sure I’m doing this right. Thanks,Bob
Hello All...We are moving from one Veeam Cloud Connect Partner to another. We have already finished the migration. We have disabled all of the Backup Copy jobs to the old partner and are ready to sever our relationship. However, we want to make sure that the VCC Partner does not have access to the remote repos. We do not suspect they will do anything but we just want to cover our bases. I know when a backup copy job is created there is a setting to “Allow Veeam Cloud connect partner to manage this repo”. Is it a simple matter of unchecking that box to prevent access? Or should we completely delete the VCC partner from the service provider window? We would like to avoid deleting them for a week or so since we still do not have 7 days of retention with the new provide so we want to option to get to that data if needed over the next week or so. So will unchecking allowing them to have access achieve what we want?ThanksDave
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.
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
