By now i’m using “Veeam Backup & Rep” in the free community edition - for testing some things an maybe buying a commercial license in future. The problem is, that “File Copy Jobs” (not Backup Copy) are very very slow.For Example i have to Copy an ammount of single (168.000) files with about 180 GB together to a local target disk. If i use the integrated windows copy feature these Files are copied within about 4 or 5 hours. The FILE COPY Job from Veeam runs for 25 HOURS (by now) and shows a state of 32% ready. What could be the issue for this long duration? The source and target are the same. thanks in advanceG.Huber
Hey Guys,I had a backup fail last night due to a datastore no longer having enough space to process Is this a threshold that can be configured somewhere?How much space is actually needed to process a backupI am trying to find some more info in the logs but havent seen anything yet Thanks,
Hello veeam community! As we know, the VMCE v12 is comming soom and with that a new exam with new topics including building backup capabilities, restoring from backup and advanced repository functionalities, etc are coming too. But at this moment my questions is about VMCE 2021.Do you know how long we can still book the exam VMCE 2021?Do you think it's still worth trying to pass VMCE 2021 or its better wait for v12 exam?
We have an onpremise Veeam server that runs the following jobs:1. Backup to local storage (weekly full, daily incrementals)2. Copy job to Linux hardened repository (immutable)3. Copy job to Azure Blob cool storage (immutable)Now i would like to have the Azure monthly backups moved to archive tier. I'm assuming i have to use SOBR for this. The following question arise:i create a second immutable repository with longer immutability, say 1 year. After moving the full backup, will it calculate ‘initial backup date + 1 year’, or ‘SOBR copy date + 1 year’? do i need a new container for this or can i just create a folder within a container? if a backup is still immutable can it be moved to the archive tier? copying backups obviously generates a large amount of traffic. Download backup from one repository, upload to another. Is there something i can do to limit the amount of traffic and costs? what's the risk here? To move data the local Veeam server needs to have modify permissions in both th
Hi, our client just had a ransomware attack and unfortunately veeam server and backup files were affected. Client had to rebuild their servers and We had to reinstall Veeam and recreate backup from start again.We are looking into introducing tape as “offline” backup so we can restore backup files from it in worst case scenarios. My question is, if we reinstall Veeam B&R is it easy to re-introduced the Tape Library and is it easy to scan for it and retrieve/recover the Backup Files from it to Veeam Disk Repository?
Just a quick question...I was tasked with restoring OneDrive data from an account for a client that apparently left and the user was deleted, but someone else was accessing the OneDrive data while the user account was still in the Deleted Users status/folder, but once the 30 days elapsed, that data was purged. This client is currently being backed up by Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud backup (until I get those folks moved over to Veeam) but I noticed that the last backup of the data was before the user account was deleted. Makes sense, but I hadn’t considered that their OneDrive would even be accessible by the other users during that time period if the user/mailbox had been marked as deleted.So my question is, if a user account is marked deleted, does VB365 still backup the deleted mailbox/OneDrive (or can it even do so - assuming that you had that user explicitly specified or had the job set to backup the entire organization, etc) until Microsoft purges that data? I imagine I can test thi

Hi,I am struggling with a problem. Disk space for service Catalog is low at 21%Disk space for service Jobs is low at 21%Disk space for service Logging is low at 21%I can’t, for the life of me, work out how to fix this! Nothing I have come across seems to work.I can see this if I query the Helm chart:bash-4.4$ helm show all kasten/k10<snip> persistence: mountPath: "/mnt/k10state" enabled: true ## If defined, storageClassName: <storageClass> ## If set to "-", storageClassName: "", which disables dynamic provisioning ## If undefined (the default) or set to null, no storageClassName spec is ## set, choosing the default provisioner.

hello, i would like to know, if I create CDP Policy on my veeam server, with RPO 10 Minutes, Short-term 36 Hours and long-term 24 Hours keep for 7 days. so it means that i will have 216 restore for short-term, with one full and rest are incremental and for the long-term, i will have 7 incremental.is it right ?
Hello.I have an issue with booting from Recovery Media created with Windows Free Agent V6.The Server HPE DL345 GEn11 is running Windows Server 2022.When i try to boot from ILO Boot starts. I get the message Press any Key to boot. Than it immdiately switchs back to BIOS boot settings.Same Problem with booting from RUFUS Stick.On DL380 Gen10 with Intel CPU it works fine.Booting from Server 2022 ISO is working on the AMD EPYC is working fine.I created the Recovery Image twice. And added the USED Drivers as otopnal drivers too. No Changes.Booting the AMD from a different WRONG Recovery Image (Z2 Workstation) boots “Press any key to start ...) and freezes the Server at once. Any ideas?Greetings from Germany.
Hello,Regarding Forever Forward backups, is it necessary to create period full backups (either Active or Synthentic), or can you just go with the initial full backup and everything else is incremental? (I know it is probably at least RECOMMENDED to do periodic full backups, but let’s not worry about that for purposes of this post/question) If you were to go with just the initial full backup then leave the rest as incrementals, what happens if you have a corrupt/failed incremental backup in the chain, but need to do a restore of a file? Is Veeam able (and smart enough) to work around it? (i.e., if it has a failed or corrupt incremental backup, is Veeam smart enough to start the next backup based on the last good incremental and basically ignore the failed/corrupt one?) Thanks! :-)
Hello, I just recently installed Nutanix AVH for a client; they were previously on VMware (and backing up with Veeam). I setup two backup jobs that use the Nutanix AVH plugin/appliance, but to be honest, I am not “happy” with it, and am wondering if it might be better to use the Windows/Linux agent to backup, but not sure what pros and cons are. What I am not overly-happy with with the Nutanix AVH plugin are: * Even though VMs are in the same job, backups get split per-VM, which I don’t think get any benefit from deduplication (though I think they benefit from compression still). The agent-based backups seem to behave more like the VMware-based backups in that the VMs in the same job get backed up to one file (named for the job), and benefit from deduplication (as well as compression) * The “session report” is very light on details. I had come to like the details provided by the “normal” session report I could see previously (and which I can get with the agent-based backups) What
We have contracted with a cloud backup service for Veeam Backup with bucket. We have been experiencing problems for a few days with the following errors.1- Error when trying to connect to the cloud repository to perform a Veeam backup.We have a backup job in Veeam Backup that sends 7 VMs to the cloud repository, however, on several days the error below occurs when trying to send this backup:2- This problem is generally occurring whenever the first problem occurs and it would be some type of error related to the tasks that Veeam Backup performs.The errors that occur are the following:
working in a client env with veeam v11 and 12….just upgraded to v12.we have issues with replication not working (started all of a sudden 3 weeks ago). Support said that it was a known issue in v11 and we needed to upgrade. Tbh I wasn’t convinced as its been working fine for some time.Anyway we upgraded to v12 but replication is still not working.You can see that the copy is seen as in-progress so Veeam is just trying to send data. You can also see on the storeonce side that Veeam files have landed/created with ZERO bytes. It just sits there for hours and you dont see any data being transmitted for some reason…..We do have a call with support but just wondered if you guys had any ideas. We’ve involved HPE and run scripts on the storeonce appliances which are able to send files between the devices (1G files, 10G files etc).
Hi Community,We are using as AV solution Sentinel One. This Solution isn’t standard included in the AntivirusInfo.xml for Secure Restore/SureBackup. So I had to create my own entry, based on very little info and no list of error codes. It’s working but I don’t feel 100% safe as it wasn’t standard included or supported. During a recent Veeam On Tour it was brought to my attention, that using a different AV solution other then the one that’s active on your server bring an extra level of security/check. Now standard on this windows servers os Defender installed.Defender is also standard part of the AntivirusInfo.xml. We don’t want 2 AV solutions add the same time active on our systems. However if we could for example with SureBackup start a PS script that activate Defender at the start of the job and deactivates it again add the end of the task. This would be a great solution to me. Has anyone here this kind of solution in place and would like to share the PS?What about the AntivirusInfo.
Dear Veeam Community,I hope this finds you well. I've encountered an issue after updating to Veeam Version 12 and was hoping someone might have come across a similar problem or can provide some guidance.**Problem Description:** After the update, I am unable to send notification emails. I consistently receive the error message: "Unable to connect to SMTP server because of invalid credentials or connection settings." I am certain of my credentials, having double-checked multiple times.Steps Taken:1. I've tried all configuration variants using both ports 587 and 465.2. When using port 465, I am able to apply the settings, but an error then displays.3. With port 587, the error surfaces after sending the test message.**Mail Server Error Logs:** From the logs, the following sections raised concerns:* `SASL login authentication failed`* `TLS library problem: error:14094412:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:sslv3 alert bad certificate`The error regarding the TLS library is particularly concerning.
I’m in the market for new storage at 2 sites. I’m hoping to get some input from the community here if any of you have a lot of data, or fast storage. Requirements - You need to be able to hit a minimum of 2GB/s on your Veeam jobs to post your solution. I want you to detail your proxy, repo, and storage setup as well. (This is not a competition though) Currently I have 2 V7000’s. I can hit about 2.2GB/s sending data to 6 LTO8 drives. I am hitting about 6k IOPS but the latency starts to increase at this point. I’ve been happy with this storage, (7200RPM disks) but it’s time to upgrade, and I am looking at a few options. Option 1) Exagrid at 2 sites. 10+ EX84 per site - Does anyone here own Exagrid storage? What is your performance like, how about long term restores? The price is decent, I just have concerns about a large scale instant restore, synthetic operations, merges etc. (Those are my current pain points with my current v7000s It’s fast untill I run too many at once) Option 2)
I’ve recently gone through the process of upgrading my Veeam implementation from v11 to v12. Everything has upgraded correctly and I’ve even managed to get a hardened repository server upgraded successfully. My problem is that although all configured jobs are quite happily running and successfully completing under v12, the physical Veeam server running as an agent backup job fails. This was working previously before the upgrade. Is there any solution to this issue.
