I am new to Veeam and would like to restore the backup to a new location. The wizard takes me through steps to restore. In the datastore menu does it automatically create the VM with the new name. This is production server just need to know more before proceeding. Is this the only wizard for restore or after completing this wizard there will be another wizard to be completed. Is the live server online when the server is restored?
Hi everyone, I have problem with one of my servers who have MSQL and when the backup is finished i have this warning message “ Unable to truncate Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs. Details: Failed to process 'TruncateSQLLog' command. Failed to truncate SQL server transaction logs for instances: . See guest helper log.” I have search in official support and only find that the veeam account for backup must be MSQL administrator on that database, and to be local admin on that machine. I have make him database admin, but still i have this warning, and the hdd on that machine will be full soon. We have V11 Enterprise with support and so on, but because we are Public Enterprise we have bought this product from one Company in our Town. Can somebody give me some solution instruction step by step ?
Hi, I have not been inside Veeam for a while. I am getting errors as in the snapshot below:I understand it is complaining about storage space for backups but I am trying to zero in on what to attack first here. The one that interests me is “Unable to apply retention policy: failed to delete backup files error…...is locked by running session xxx-xxx [Instant recovery]. Is Veeam just too busy to start the backup because it could not apply retention policy? Not sure which item to investigate first...ar
Every other database in our enterprise is being backed up except for the VeeamBackup database. So, my question is - Should I run a native SQL backup on it? We have been running Veeam Backup & Replication (Version 11) for a few months now. It has been backing up our VMs and SQL databases except for that one. I looked in the job and there’s no reason (e.g., exclusions) listed for omitting this database. I logged a ticket with the HelpDesk but have not heard back from them yet. Have others noticed this problem? If so, how did you address it?Thanks in advance for your help!
There is File share server having volume X shared with RDS to keep the User Profile Disks (UPD). We want to backup the UPDs so planning to add the file share server in Veeam B&R as file server & create a backup job to backup volume X.Question 1→ If a user is logged-in to session host, meaning the UPD (VHDx file) of that user is mounted from the file share server to session host & same time the backup job run to backup volume X. Will there be problem with the VHDx, which is mounted to session host?Question2 → What is best way to backup File share server having UPDs of RDS ?
I have a customer that needed to rebuild the Windows VM that was acting as their Proxy/Repository server at their secondary site. He is using all of the same IP information on the new server. The repository itself is on a NetApp E-Series access via iSCSI. Once the server is rebuilt, what is the process for getting it back into the B&R server. If the server is the same name, will the B&R server just need to push out the Veeam proxy/repository services to the rebuilt VM or will we need to delete and re-add the proxy and repository to Veeam? If we discovery the repository LUNs on the new VM via iSCSI will we need to re-scan the repository to discover the backups or will they just be there?If there is a process document for doing this it would be appreciated.
Hi, everyone! I have a quick question about coypjob intervals. If I have my copyjob set to 1 day starting at 4am, does that mean that the copy starts at 4am and runs until 4am the next day and then just starts over? I am seeing some warnings about things not being copied over in the copy interval. I’m a little confused on how this works. How can I make the copy interval longer?
Hi All - Hope well.I was hoping some one could shed some light on this. It seams when I replicate VM’s from our production server to the DR server, hyper V also makes a snap shot.What is the correct way to start the replicas? I imagine just for the replication job to stop and then start the VM’s normally on Hyper V without using Hyper V snapshots?What is the correct procedure? - I would also like to use the fail-back option so I dont want to hyperV snap shots to upset the process. Please find the image attached. Thanks all!

Happy Tuesday! I’ll try and post a little pop quiz question each day, hope to hear from many of you. Did you know the answer? Did you look it up in the documentation? Did you try it in a lab? Please share some details along with your answer.Your production virtual machine leverages one or more virtual RDM disks. The operations team is documenting which restore procedures are available. Which restore options can be used to keep the vRDM intact as opposed to the restore converting to a VMDK?
Hi, we wants to make DR configuration between Veeam-VMware backup replication. Each two site has independent infrastructure, backup by veeam. And network is connected by private line. Our requirement is similar as DR site. When Site 1 gets failure, Site 2 can recover VM in Site 1. If network is possible and can access to same File storage(SMB),[copy backup job] to SMB storage and recover VM on another Veeam B&R?network storage resides in another location. Thanks.Best regards.Jaeseong Lee
