Good day all, hoping to find someone who has either seen this or may know where I could start to troubleshoot (I'll open a ticket with support as well, just hedging my bets here). We've used Veeam for server/VM backups for a few years and it's awesome.For workstation backups, we've used Carbonite (don't ask, we've tried to get rid of it in the past but got shot down by higher ups/non administrators) but it has been decided that we're not going to renew this year (got about a month left on our annual term).Over the last year, I implemented OneDrive KFM so that our desktop and documents folders are resilient and more "portable", which has made our hardware swaps much smoother and reduced the need for Carbonite.But I digress...while nobody actually said to go find a replacement for Carbonite (it seems to be the thought that OneDrive KFM is a replacement for backups,.which I know it's not), I am looking into alternatives, and Veeam would seem like the logical choice. So I've been doing som

Hi There!I've just shared this story in my VUG Group, Spain,But I wanted to translate it to English and share it with all of you,Its a Personal experience, Hi,I want to share with you my latest experience as a IT Infrastructure responsible, just a week before moving into a new company.August 10th 2022, enjoying my holidays, I was celebrating my birthday with my family, my mobile dings and I saw the message:“We’ve got a Virus in our Systems”I left everything I was doing, quickly went to the office to get a better understanding of what was going on, and execute the necessary actions to mitigate and solve the issue.Into my head I had the crazy idea:“Its just a joke” my colleagues are doing this to scare me and its a surprise… I was wrong.We confirmed that the virus was a ransomware called <DonkeyF*cker> and hit our servers and spread himself like gunpowder into our Servers.After a huge effort, we finally find the origin of the Infection and encryption, we took it offline, formatted
Hello everyone! It’s Friday again! Recently I saw this music video:(115) Silas Fernandes - Heavy Droids (Official music video) - YouTube At the beginning of music, we can see three sentences about AI: Artificial Intelligence is like nuclear energy - both promising and dangerous. - Bill Gates With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. - Elon MuskThe development of full Artificial Intelligence could spell the end of the human race. - Stephen Hawking They are 3 influence and smart guys that have peculiar and interesting point of view about Artificial Intelligence.So, I would like to know about all of you… What are your conceptions about this theme?Do you have any concern about that? Let's talk about it! Happy Friday!😀🤖
Hi all!I stumbled across an older post from Tom Sightler here: https://forums.veeam.com/post137077.html#p137077The content still holds true and to summarise:If using LTO5 or older (which hopefully no one is doing for new deployments): Disable hardware compression unless your Veeam backups have compression disabled For LTO6 and newer: Keep hardware compression enabled but don’t expect big savings, maybe put 2.6-2.7 TB on a 2.5 TB media.The reason it makes sense to keep it on is the new algorithm recognises already compressed data and passes it through.
Hii Guys, I'm trying to find a backup to tape strategy on veeam, our company has the following two backup policies:1. Daily Policy- Backup job runs every day, job schedule starts at 07:00 PM and must be finished before 06:00 AM.- Using the Forever forward incremental method- Backup defragment is done once a week- Backup Health Check is done once a week- Retention policy is set for 30 restore points2. Weekly Policy- Job backup runs once a week, starting at 07:00 PM and must be completed before 06:00 AM.- Using the Forever forward incremental method- Backup defragment is done once a week- Backup Health Check is done once a week- Retention policy is set for 4 restore pointsHere's what I want to achieve:1. Backup is stored on tape for 1 month2. Media pool in one month is divided into 4 media sets3. Use as little tape as possible (Due to the limited number of tapes) Can someone give me some input on how to configure it to reach my target, or can anyone give me better input for my backup str
Hi Community, I have configure my secondary backup location as aws-s3 object storage. previously I used virtual tape backup to aws via aws tape gateway. Now It gave warning when backup to aws-s3. 8/17/2022 7:10:36 PM :: Using Backup Repository 1 scale-out repository extent (unable to meet data placement policy)
Hi,From a backup I want to try and restore a file. We go through the process in Veeam to browse and restore files but when the file browser pop up window appears it never displays any files from the AWS instance. I left it for a long time and it’s not go that much on the instance. Any idea why this doesn’t work?As an aside, we also can’t restore any instances either so wondered if anyone would know of a paid service we are able to use to help check Veeam is set up for our AWS account correctly. I see snapshots but not much use without being able to restore them.Many thanks,Bob
Hello,I have an interrogation, about how Veeam works with Forever forward Incremtal backup job and immuability.I know that’s not possible to use this kind of job with an hardened repository, even if you try to configure it, Veeam will pop up an error message. But how it work with capacity tier with object lock enabled?Veeam doesn’t transfer all data block to the capacity tier but only the new data blocks and metadata from each new backup file. (System similar to ReFS/XFS). I read the documentation about block generation but it’s not really clear in my head.If someone have a schema that would be nice.thanks

Hello,I'm using Veeam 11 community edition. I'm having trouble booting from the recovery media. First of all the "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD" is displayed in German. When I do press a key the system hangs at a screen with the blue 4 pane window image, a MS Windows image. I also noticed I don't get the option to include drivers when building the image. Please let me know if you have any ideas.Thank you,Frank
It’s that time of the week again! Happy Friday everyone! Following on from last week’s Fun Friday, what’s your favourite tech YouTube channel or TikTok account? It hasn’t got to be related directly to backups, just anything technology related 😊 For me it has to be John Savill’s YouTube channel:https://www.youtube.com/c/NTFAQGuyI’ve used him extensively to help study for exams and expand my knowledge of the Azure platform. What’s yours? 😁
Hello guys! The question is in the title 😄: How do you use Surebackup Job?I ll not remade the speech why it’s important to apply the 3-2-1-1-0 rule and why we have to perform restore tests at recurring intervals. A backup it’s good, a verified backup without errors it’s better !Personally I have two use casesThe first one: Application GroupI create a dedicated job for an application group, when I need to create a sandbox, test specifics roles with vms who must be interconnected or if I need to test only one VM for troubleshoot for example.In the configuration of my surebackup job I select only my Application group.The second : Linked JobIn this case, I want to test all my VMs in backup jobs. Unlike a job in Application Group mode, which starts one vm at a time and if one of the tests on a vm fails, the job fails immediately.With the Linked Job option, Veeam can start several vms in the Datalab environment in parallel, if a test fails on one vm the job continues to perform checks on t
I am attempting Connect to Repository in community edition to my Google Cloud account. I have my access and secret keys and am able to connect to my bucket but do not see any folders listed when I browse so I am unable to complete adding the repository. I made sure the folder was created before I created the secret keys and I have tried several attempts with new/different projects within G-cloud. Any idea why it can see my bucket but not the folder? I have given the service account within G-cloud owner rights. Thanks for any help or suggestions
Hi,we have 4 different backup priorities and vCenter Tags which our VMs are assigned to. Now i would like to implement 3 different vCenter Tags for application-aware processing options. Unfortunatly i can’t remove the Prio4 Tag from aap settings, because it’s used for default. Whats happens if a VM has assigned 2 Tags in aap options? Is there some kind of hierarchy which option will be used? What would be best practise in this case?

Hi, I am the end user and currently subscribe to cloud connect from a service provider. I am running into an issue where I have totally crushed my bandwidth limits at my DC location because of backups. I would like to shift my backup traffic to use a different gateway, much like I am able to do with object storage, but I am not seeing an option for the service provider configuration to select a different gateway. Is the only option for my backup copies to go to the cloud connect provider through the Veeam server and not a different gateway?
