Hello, I have a query.In a scenario with large mail files (OST and PST) that only change partially.Is there an option in Veeam Backup to only copy the part that has changed?How does deduplication.Does Veeam implement this functionality?Thank you for your attention.A greeting.
I work pretty heavily with backups in my current role, and we use your product and another product with some of our clients. The other product has a feature that is incredibly helpful and I think would be an amazing feature to add to Veeam. How feasible would it be to add a “Force Retention” feature? I really believe we need this for situations when we run into low disk space. In Veeam’s current state, if I run into an issue where I need to reclaim disk space, I am forced to break my backup chain and delete data. If I could lower retention on my backup and then force retention, that would effectively eliminate the need for me to have to lose data and break a backup chain. For example: if I am in a situation where I am getting failures due to low disk space, and I have retention on said backup job set to 30 days, if I could cut retention down to, say, 20 days, and force retention, I could maintain my current backup chain and then address the disk space issue accordingly (adding more dis
Dear Veeam Technical Community, By now, I’m sure you are all aware of the planned launch of the next major release of our flagship solution Veeam Availability Suite v11 on the 24th of February (Click on the link to set up a reminder to join the launch event). In the meantime, I’d like to collect a list of any specific topics that you would like to see any deep-dive technical contents from Veeam for, either in the form of blog posts here on the community hub, or on our frequent Veeam product webinars etc, in order for you to understand the new Veeam products and solutions or their key capabilities better? Can you please share your asks via comments? To get you started, I’m guessing the below V11 specific topics would be of interest?

Hello, I have a question.I have a scenario with a server, it has Veeam Backup Community installed and makes copies locally.I would like to add an external copy on a server that is now deprecated, and I would like to use for copies.I have tried to get Veeam Backup Agent for Windows to be recognized on both servers, but it is only recognized by one, the one doing the installation.Is it possible to make copies of the same server from two Veeam Backup servers?Thank you all.

Hello everybody! I have a brazilian blog that I started to produce some contents about data protection and Veeam. So, I’m gonna write about Veeam too. The first post I wrote was about 3-2-1 rule and now I’d like to know what kind of subjects y'all think that would be interesting to write about? If you have any tips for me, just let me know!
Hello friends, Can Veeam perform a file level backup by specific file name prefix? If a file starts with dept1 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository X.If a file starts with dept2 across all servers, then Backup only those files to repository Y. Our retention policy require us to keep specific files for a short period of time while other files for a longer period of time. There are several file servers with TBs of data to backup this way. Is this even possible? Any feed backup would be appreciated. Thanks, Derek

I recall from one of the recent Veeam R&D Forums Digest newsletters that Reverse Incremental for Hyper-V is being removed or has been removed in VBR. This is useful for sending full backups to Tape, otherwise we have to do synthetic full to Tape (heavy use of virtual memory for our TB-sized backups) or create a synthetic .VBK (use more disk space).Which VBR version did Veeam start doing this? Luckily still on 9.5I feel like Hyper-V is getting short-changed ...
Hi All,I have 3 destinations for my backup and it’s all in the same network. I would like to secure my last copy of my backup. I have multiple possibility.Second internet connection and qnap sync with ACLQnap backup SSHVLAN and Qnap backup sshWhat do you prefed and for why ?I have 200Mpbs for the second internet connection and my second vlan is on the other building with 100 mbps mpls.I would like to have a backup outside of my first building.Thanks you
Hi, A feature I believe would be extremely useful would be scheduling SureBackup around the completion of a Backup Copy Job. Backup Copy Jobs aren’t scheduled the same as usual jobs so I understand the additional complexity around this however the reason for my request is simple.One of SureBackup’s primary limitations is Disk IO, if we create a SureBackup job to run after a backup job is complete, a Backup Copy Job could then start consuming IO to transmit this backup to an archive tier, Cloud Connect or to some other secondary repository. This creates contention for IO with SureBackup, impacting the ability to validate virtual machines.A key example of this behaviour is when VMware Tools fails to start within the traditional 30 seconds (I’m aware of registry keys that can amend this behaviour, but it’s just one example). If we could chain either BCJ’s to run after a backup is validated (so we know we’re copying good data firstly) or even inversely whereby we run SureBackup after the c
Although there is a lot of great content out there, sometimes you may just be stuck and not sure what your next steps should be.I’ve been planning some YouTube live Q&A/Study group sessions and wanted to check if there would be any interest in such a format from the good folks here?
Hi, Hopefully I’m not alone in my wishing of this but I believe that Veeam need to adopt an MFA offering for their sign in systems. The amount of services covered by the Veeam single sign on is increasing and there are some services that would really benefit from the increased security such as the ProPartner portal. Also I’m interested to hear everyone’s experience with the “keep me signed in” setting for Veeam. I don’t find it keeps me signed in longer than a day on average. MFA + keep me signed in for 14/28 days would be awesome improvements this year IMO.
A very interesting feature in Veeam Backup for Office 365.You can get an email alert when data from defined users is accessed in VBO V5.I think this would be a great feature for the “normal” Exchange backup, too.https://benyoung.blog/get-a-notification-when-restricted-user-data-is-accessed-in-veeam-backup-for-office365/ Thanks to Ben Young for the detailled description.

I just wanted to post about my upcoming book for those that might be interested in learning about Veeam v10. The book is title - Mastering Veeam Backup & Replication 10 from Packt Publishing. It is in pre-order now on Packt and Amazon. It will cover some of the more advanced topics in Veeam v10 and requires some knowledge. It will be a great reference for anyone wanting to learn more about Veeam. If you have any questions just let me know. The publishing date is noted for March 9th but I have fast tracked the chapters which are all done now so that we can move the date up sooner to February timeframe hopefully. I can post more news once I have some.

Just read a excellent and very comprehensive article about VMware vSphere VM quiescing. This is the necessary process - within a VM - to get a consistent status of the guest OS (especially virtual disk) and applications. So VM gets quiesced before vSphere snapshot is created. Because VBR uses (like I think any other backup software vendor) vSphere snapshots for backup/replication, I thought this article would be interesting to share. It is definitely worth reading and I highly recommend to do so!https://blog.zuthof.nl/2020/11/26/vsphere-vm-quiescing-essentials/Here a short overview:What is quiescing? Consistency options Non-quiesced Crash consistent Quiesced File-system consistent Application consistent Interfaces Veeam uses Network (RPC) vSphere VIX Usage in Windows VSS Script Linux Script Quiescing impact on app recovery Transaction Logs Quiescing impact on performance Snapshot based Impact because of vSphere
I have a performance tier on a scale-out of several repositories and a capacity tier on object storage. I copy backups to object storage as soon as they are created so I can have a disaster recovery in case a repository failed irremediably.What is the best practice to restore the whole data of a repository starting from data in object storage?
