(repository went to RAW once again, formatted it one more time...) Are you on a virtual machine, and using ESXI as your hypervisor? There are a few windows updates that can cause this top happen, but uninstalling the patch just gets you back from RAW to REFS temporarily until the patch is reinstalled down the road. The solid solution is to disable hot-add/hot-plug on that VM.https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1012225
I hear you 😀 Actual GUI? Well, did you know I started my IT career on IBM Mainframe?! Have a look what’s ready: VERY cool! I’ll test it when I get time. Ex IBMer here. What did you do with Mainframes? I worked on Z-Series boxes for several years doing service. Crazy they are up to the Z16 now. I never messed with Z-series other than helping to make sure the mainframe guys were able to get their VTL’s to connect to the Data Domains. I had I-series guys next to me as well. I’ll tell you now, if you ever wanted a lucrative career, go into Z or I because there aren’t a lot of folks around anymore that know that stuff, and IBM snaps up those folks right away for what I’m told are the two colleges that still teach it. I did have to marvel every time we opened the Z-series cabinets though….IBM builds some really nice looking, well thought out gear with some nicely structured cabinets.
Well, I tried at least 1 HoL Challenge & didn’t do so well. The Lab UI is a bit clunky to get the full view; otherwise I would’ve done well’ish 🤷🏻♂️😊 I knew what to do..pretty easy. Manipulating through the UI gave me fits is all. It is kind clunky but you get used to it. The other issue is that some windows don’t fit so I had to zoom Chrome out a bit to see buttons and the like.

Manipulating through the UI gave me fits is all. If you never did a HOL, then it doesn’t hurt to do the practise lab or something different. Just to get used to the small details. On the other hand I’ve missed the US keyboard layout and got confused in the first task 🤣 Hmm...labs won’t open for me...just got to a loading screen and then back to the main page. But I had an issue logging on initially so maybe I just need to try an incognito window…. I had the same issue but after reloading the page it started to work again. Yeah, maybe just reloading would have helped, but worked great in a new incognito window.
I suspect there is also a way to do it with VeeaMover. Have both the old and new repository on whichever server makes sense, and the move it. But honestly, I’d just migrate the configuration (with the jobs stopped), copy the backup data to the new repo, rescan/scan the repo, and then map the backup job to the newly found data. This should keep the existing backup chains, vs having to start new.
Hi Derek, I’ve noticed that after you enable the modern auth and you return on the menu it asks for the auth again but it still work even if you don’t authorize a second time..I don’t know if it is a bug.. 🤔 I think in my case, I wasn’t able to send an email until I re-authed it again. Not sure…it’s been a couple weeks so maybe I should go back and check again, but I think the emails have still been flowing this time.
Great story...I love creative thinking like this and somehow seem to be subjected to such requirements on a regular basis. I do love that they broke the disk and had to repeat again. Imagine that. Hopefully the got that all worked out before failing a third time.
There was already malware that used dynamic naming of variable in the code to evade signature detection. I came across one a few month back that used different varieties of flowers or something like that as I recall. Adding some AI to the mix make it all the worse…..
In my previous job I had a customer where the sprinklers went off and lets just say they didn’t have a “Datacenter” in mind when the building was built. Every PC in the building had a few inches of water in them and many were sitting on the floor. We were able to get most of the data recovered, but water and electronics is a bad combo. Corrosion and rust on contacts is inevitable so it’s usually a large insurance claim. Happy to hear you made it out the hero in this story! Once water has entered the system, even if it’s working, I’d highly recommend replacing it because corrosion will continue. It’s like buying a car that has been flooded - you may not see all the damage but there’s going to be damage that that will bite you as time goes on.Reminds me of an issue one of our divisions had a few years ago. We have a low-voltage cabling division in my company that runs network cabling and the like, and they were near completion on rehabbing a building that had thousands of feel of
Has anyone run into a situation where they had to reauthorize modern auth for SMTP alerting? I had a client that was complaining that they weren’t getting alerts (they weren’t set as a recipient) but when I was in there noticed that testing was failing and I had to reauthorize the SMTP connection. Seemed strange to me as it had only been setup a couple of months before.
Personally, I’d recommend building a new backup server and migrating the configuration database and removing VBR from the DC prior to the demotion. I suspect you might be alright, but I see no reason to take the risk as easy as a migration to a new backup server can be completed.
@Michael Melter thc for information 😉 Personally, as a precaution, I never restore by overwriting the original Vm. I always proceed with restor Other location and rename VM _restored. Valid point in general. But doing that you miss certain very useful points with going on top of the VM: Quick rollback using CBT → much faster, especially for the large VMs with few changes (filers, etc.) Keeping your MoRef ID → you will have to re-add your VMs to your backup jobs You will need twice the disk space for some time as you recover next to the original VM More config efforts/settings to be taken care of during the restore (Datastore etc.) → less process stability My #1 choice is most of the time: Quick-Backup of the “broken” state Recovery on top of the original VM (using quick-rollback) Thus you still have the “broken” state to e.g. recovery data from and still can enjoy the benefits mentioned. Just my 2ct. I prefer quick rollback if needed although I often would use inst
If there is nothing that needs to be backed up at the Serbia site, then I would setup a backup at the primary site, and setup a SOBR at the secondary site with a copy job to copy the backup data to Serbia and also copy to Wasabi. If you have data in Serbia that needs to go to Austria, then I’d setup the reverse as well. Note that you may not want to use the same bucket. If you’re using the same backup server to coordinate it all, then a single bucket may be fine, but I’d probably use a bucket for Serbia and one for Austria if there is a need for a SOBR in Austria. As Chris mentioned, you could also have direct backup to object or direct copy to object storage, but for me, I would utilize a SOBR so that I could take advantage of immutability within Wasabi. You don’t have to use SOBR to take advantage of Immutability. 😉 Direct to Object going to Wasabi will do that as well in v12. You know….as I was typing that, I was questioning if I was correct but figured somebody would
