When will Veeam show as much love to Hyper-V as VMware with NetApp?
For many years I have used Veeam in conjunction with NetApp storage to deliver an extraordinary backup experience for my customers running VMware. It allows me to do snap based backups and kick off replication. Then I can take the traditional streaming backup from the secondary storage to another device.The rub is that Hyper-V is NOT seeing the same amount of integration now or ever… With so many folks looking at Azure; it seems like this would be a no brainer. This would allow for customers to experience a seamless hybrid cloud experience orchestrated at the backup layer without VM stun… Maybe v11 has fixed this… Please someone chime in!!!

Great K8S support? go to Kasten
Hey folks, Just had a quick call with Kasten to help me find the issue with my snapshotting. The issue was not a Kasten problem. Kasten’s great tool Kubestr that I posted about here earlier told me that I had a problem which I immediately saw when trying to run a backup with Kasten. In a quick call Kasten support very efficiently found the issue with my snapshot controller.. or lack of it for some strange reason, and we downloaded the manifests again, problem solved.. Just thought that I had to mention this since great support makes our lives so much easier!!
Backup Job Scheduling & Storage Capacity Sizing
Dear All, we have following data protection requirement, so looking forward for your guidance for creating a Backup & retention policy. File Server - at present we have 5TB files & folders currently backing up using Veeam. The requirement is that we need a 36 months of retention period of data and the backup job should run every 1 hour. The objective is to restore any file or folder with in the period of 3 years. VM Backup with at least 2 restore points with daily incremental and weekly full. Thank you in advance
Deletion of old backups
I started my first backup on the 9th. I have retention set to 12 days and Synthetic on Saturdays (default) . No files have yet been removed from my NAS. I have attached details 9kinow there are extra backups on some days) but its over 12 days now. When will deletion start ? Tony
Veeam Storage Plugin for DataCore
Beeing a Veeam Architect as well as DataCore DCIE at the same time I was always pushing for this plugin.After it finally happened, I took the time to write a deep dive blogpost covering all aspects:Technical background, prerequisites BfSS jobs, howto and caveats Snapshot only jobs “Instant-Sandboxing” from storage snapshots Off-label-usage with unique functionality of DataCore: Using DataCore CDP rollbacks together with the plugin to recover without having had a snapshot in the first place… (cool stuff!)Find the article in English here:https://www.elasticsky.de/en/2020/06/veeam-storage-plugin-for-datacore-deepdive/Might come in handy if you want to combine those great products. Comments or complements welcome! Regards,Michael
Veeam Disaster Recovery on AWS EC2
Hi,we do backups from our on premise VMs and some physical servers (agentbased). Backups are going to be offloaded to S3 and Glacier useing capacity and archive tier. Anything is working fine.In case of desaster, we plan to recover the backups on aws as ec2 in a vpc. We could also use vmc on aws. But because of our host limit of 2 nodes, this will not be practicable. Is there a way of automatic recovery tests, veeam orchestrator for example, to aws? Or is there even a better option? Ideal would be a daylie updated ec2 environment. Fallback would be, do backup from ec2 and recover as vm. If this would be possible.

Linux Backup Repository woes
Hi,I’m a bit confused about the difference of old Veeam forum and new community discussion board. I just posted in old forum, but as it’s not allowed to post log file content there, I’ll give it a try here too. I'm setting up our first Linux based backup repository based on Apollo 4510 server (Veeam 10). Now the jobs have different kind of errors. Before I open a case I wanted to know if those problems are known issues with an easy workaround. This all seems to be related to load, as it happens only when multiple backups are running. But there is not much CPU load and no errors in the usual linux logs.#1 at this time backup jobs were writing active fulls with 1,5GB/s over LAN to the server, CPU was 90% idle (52 cores). Nothing interesting in /var/log messages.[15.05.2021 15:19:27] <326> Error Failed to upload file D:\Veeam\Backup\VeeamAgent64 to /tmp/VeeamAgent0bc9a8bd-ebd8-44b8-a373-44510aefd89f[15.05.2021 15:19:27] <326> Error Failed to find terminal prompt: timeout occ
Windows Warnings about logs
I'm getting several warning is the windows logs. It seems to all be to do with the logging Cannot write into storage C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\Utils\Util.VolumesHostDiscover.log Text: System.ObjectDisposedException: Cannot access a closed file I have deleted the logs and they recreate and the events are recorded but throw this warning. This is a Community edition of VBS 11
Office 365 Backup Failed (403 Forbidden)
I’m currently running the 30-day trial version of Office 365 backup (22.214.171.124) and everything has been running well for the last 10 days or so. I have the software set up to run every 8 hours for a whole organization backup. Out of the blue, last night, the backups started failing with “Access denied. The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden”The admin password is the same and Azure AD shows the login for the Veeam account as successful. I’ve checked our Office 365 Health panel and see nothing new that might impact the backups. I’m running a backup to a local repository and have rebooted the backup server and the proxy server. I have plenty (4.8+ TB’s) of storage available on the repository. I went into the Organization setup and reentered the credential info and all of the checkboxes came back as successful. Has anybody else encountered this issue or does anybody have any hints for how to alleviate it?
365 Backup Proxy
Hey all,I’m just working with a 30-day trial and really focused on backing up my MS 365 environment. I set up a test using my on-prem backup server as the proxy and offloading the data to an Azure Blob (also a trial). And it worked! :DBut it’s slow. Like 1.2 MB/s processing rate.My question is, has anyone setup something similar with an Azure VM as the proxy? And if so, does it improve performance? Thank you very much for your time!
Linux Proxy not requiring full su/sudo permissions
Am I the only one who does not like the fact that the Linux Backup/Mount Proxy needs a user that can do a su or sudo on anything?I would love to see the list of commands the Linux Proxy service user is actually using and then I would configure the sudoers list to allow those commands and nothing else.If the service user has the permission to execute any command with sudo, it de facto becomes a second root user, which we would very much like to avoid on any of our Linux boxes!Let me know what you think!
