ReFS issues with latest Windows Server Updates (KB5009624, KB5009557, KB5009555)
Just a quick post; the latest Windows Server updates for 2012R2, 2019 and 2022 (haven’t seen 2016) can cause ReFS issues. After the installation, ReFS volumes are shown as RAW and are no longer accessible; so if you’re using ReFS for your repositories, then take be aware of this when installating the update. Besides that, those updates can also cause bootloops for domain controllers and break Hyper-V.Depending on your Windows Server version one of the following updates could have caused the issue: KB5009624, KB5009557, KB5009555 If you’re affected then removing the mentioned update should solve the issue. Don’t (!) try to repair the ReFS volume, because this could cause a dataloss.This should remind everyone why 3-2-1 for Backups is so important.

Where to blog?
Hi Folks, After a hiatus of wild IT academia activity and other events I want to get back to doing some posts. I am thinking of setting up a separate blog and then linking on to here like I noticed some people do. Looking for any recommendations on where to host my blog from the experts here? Thanks Geoff
Experience with HPE Apollo or other High Density server as backup repository?
Hi,I’d be interested in getting feedback from people that are already using HPE Apollo’s or other high density servers with local storage as repository server. It seems that a lot of people are currently planning to use them.what is you setup? Number of servers? Number of disks? Which type and size of RAID? Number of VM’s / source data how is your performance? do you use them only as backup target or as copy source as well? which filesystem ReFS/XFS with blockcloning/reflink
Veeam Community Points system
I was wondering how the point system works for this community. I see some people that are brand new at 600 points, then people who have topics and comments at only a few points. I can see when I am active, points being added.Can someone confirm if this is correct. I am assuming if you are not active your points go down month after month. I am also at the assumption when you are a new member you are starting around 500-600 points. I joined a while ago and wasn’t active for a bit, so I’m just trying to make sense of why brand new users have so many more points :)

What infrastructure tools do you use?
I would be interested to know which tool for IT infrastructure you use for your or your customers environment. Here is a completely unsorted list of tools I use frequently in various environments:PowerShell with various modules like VMware PowerCLI (by the way, version 12.3 was released today) and Veeam VBR. RVtools. I think this is a widely known and used tool. Get a very detailed inventory of your vSphere environment within a few mouse-clicks. New version 4.1.2 was released yesterday. Brocade SANHealth. I think, this tool is not that well known. For me, it is THE tool for Fibre Channel fabric documentation. Just install the tool, put in data of FC switches, capture date. Then upload to brocade (respectively Broadcom). After a few hours you get a link to a extremely detailed, fully automatically generated documentation (Excel und Visio). As an alternative to putty, I prefer MobaXterm. There is a free and a paid version. It offers features like sending commands to multiple sessions
Windows 11 Veeam Agent 126.96.36.19901
I know this might be a superfluous post, but I write it anyway because I know that someone will do a google search about it.Windows 11 is out today (and if you are an IT you doesn’t install it today definitely in some production device, aren’t you?)Anyway Veeam Agent for Windows 188.8.131.5201 has issue with it, and it’s not supported.So.Please.Wait.As @MicoolPaul said:You want v11a which currently has “Windows 11 readiness” based on pre-release, still not officially supported of course! But v11a includes 5.0.1 KB4215: Release Information for Veeam Backup & Replication 11a
Ready for Veeam B&R v11a?
Morning!In the latest “The Word From Gostev”, Anton Gostev has announced that the v11a platform update should be entering early availability this week. Normally you’d have to engage with Veeam support to receive this as a download but based on what appears to be a lack of engagement with this method (Anton stated they were never happy with the number of downloads yielded via this method), Veeam are looking to release the new updates during EA status via the Veeam R&D forums. If you’ve been living under a rock and you’re not aware of them, these are at https://forums.veeam.com To download the update you’ll need to go to the relevant product section of the forum.I’ll update this post when the EA downloads become available.Update:Thanks to @Mildur we know the updates will be available via the normal update threads on the R&D forums. When the downloads are available you’ll be able to find them here: Veeam B&R | Release Notes | Latest CUVeeam ONE | Release NotesVeeam Backup for

Largest VM you backup?
Here’s one to find out who has the largest backup in the forums. Currently my largest server I backup is 45.1TB. The largest one I had backing up was 115TB. It took a while but worked fine. I’ve been working on splitting it up in to multiple file servers to allow more concurrent streams to our backup/tape jobs.

Veeam - Physical or Virtual that is the question?
I wanted to ask the community on here to get a discussion going about whether using VMs for Veeam is good, bad or indifferent? It is based on a question from the forum here - VM as repo - Veeam R&D ForumsI added my thoughts to this post as I disagree with some of the comments about having to use physical servers as the BP site mentions both physical and virtual. I also work at an MSP and everything we build is virtual for Veeam other than a few tape servers we have which are physical boxes since they perform better this way with direct connect to the FC fabric.Anyway just wanted to see the communities opinions here and not to put one or the other down just thoughts and what everyone is doing now.And go……. 🤣

Questions on Homelab setup
I wish to build a new HOMELAB. Here is a guide and many others I found on Reddit.- How is your lab setup? What would you recommend? Main virtualisation solution would be VMware (would need multiple hosts here). I would also have HyperV and Proxmox VE within this environment. Yes, this is possible!https://www.altaro.com/vmware/perfect-homelab-vmware/?vgo_ee=%2BWombPttbhpwDFBk3C2zvW7%2BX%2FpMfSStElYb34Re%2FNg%3D (I love the first approach in this guide).I have got my ideas, but would like to learn from you. Keep in mind, I need a cost effective solution ranging from hardware to Power etc. Here is a talking point but just talking about the installation. I do NOT need help with the setup (deployment) tips as this is a walkthrough for me. Just ideas on how to setup low a cost effective lab, but yet a Lab to be reckoned with.
