Hey all, my company is using Veeam mostly for our medium-sized clients, but some of our smaller clients with only a few VM’s generally are using something else. A couple with old Datto Siris or Alto appliances, quite a few with Barracuda backup appliances, and even an Intronis client. Most of these clients are paying for more of a BaaS service on a monthly or yearly agreement, though I think a couple actually own their the Barracuda appliance that we sold them in the past.With that said, we’re pretty invested with Datto despite the Kaseya attachment, and they caught the ear of my boss about leasing out Datto Siris 4 appliances to replace all of those non-Veeam clients. That said, I’d rather move them over the the Service Provider side of things and get everything moved into the Veeam house.Here’s what I was thinking. We historically don’t like hosting customer data, and so somewhat in parallel with my developing a VB365 solution for our clients (as most are using Barracuda Cloud-to
Service Providers, FYI, looks like licensing is going up slightly for 2023… As we look to close out the year and kick off fresh in 2023, we’re excited to recap some recent Veeam® enhancements and share some future ones. Q1 brought you Veeam Service Provider Console v6, which included licensing and usage reporting integrations to further enhance your Microsoft 365 data protection capabilities. In June of 2022, we kicked off our new partner directory, aimed at driving prospects and customers to our partner community. We’re seeing an average of 10,000+ unique visitors on this page monthly — a huge win for our partners! Our latest Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 update included integrations and enhancements for our Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) community (i.e., Self-Service Restore portal). Speaking of enhancements, Veeam is committed to continuous innovation and has multiple product and platform releases in store to help you grow and scale your business in FY23. A further chang
I swear I’ve seen some posts about this but can’t find them. I haven’t dipped into the Linux Hardened repo’s with immutability yet, but one of my engineers recently set one up for a client, but as a copy repository. I’m putting together a proposal to replace our internal Synology NAS that is our primary repository with a Dell PowerEdge R550 with a fair amount of local space (8x 8TB disks in RAID 5 or 6) connected via 10Gb or 25Gb links. Backup data is currently copied to a SOBR at a remote site that is using a Synology NAS and Wasabi for immutable object storage. Right now the primary site is keeping 30 days of Forward Incrementals with Active Full’s with no GFS retention, but I plan to ramp up some more retention locally at some point as I ran into space issues a few months back and ended up doing all of my GFS work on the copy repo at the remote site for the time being.Any gotcha’s I should be looking out for this sort of configuration - primarily in regard to using a hardened box
Hey all, getting ready to setup VDRO in the lab and production, but I have questions on the location of the vCenter server. Currently, my vCenter is located in the primary site, but wondering if it should be instead setup at the recovery site, or if I should have HA or ELM configured so that there is a second vCenter setup at the recovery site. ELM doesn’t sound as useful for this situation, but HA may work and there is low enough latency between the primary and recovery sites to support HA. That said, I was hoping to the put the witness at our third site, but latency is higher to that location so that may not work. Anyhow, I know I need to get my VBR backup server moved to the recovery site (was already on my list) but what’s considered the best practice here?
Apparently I knew all of the linux commands...and I’m not really a linux guru by any means but guessed well on a few of them. Also didn’t realize that I can do malware scanning in a SureBackup job until now.... Scored a 39121 which I think is decent? I see a bunch of folks scored higher, including @JonahMay. How about the rest of y’all?https://labwarz.veeam.com/
Perhaps the Service Provider section of the R&D Forums is a better place to ask, but I figured I’d check here to see if anyone has an easy button for resetting MFA on an AD login specified by AD group for an Admin in the Service Provider Console. I reloaded my phone and the Duo app didn’t import my 3rd party MFA logins. Fortunately, I have other admin logins I can use.So far what I’ve gotten is that you have to apparently use the REST API (which seems silly to me if that’s the case, feature request coming up…..) because the user only exists in an AD group that was specified for access. While I’m not great with API’s, the the Swagger UI should make things easier. That said, I haven’t yet figured out how to authenticate with Swagger using an account that has MFA enabled. I might be able to get it once I get past that hump. I was hoping that if I disabled the MFA requirements, I could log in and reset MFA from the user access, but it appears to prompt for MFA once enrolled even if
A data integrity checksum error occurred. Data in the file stream is corrupt. - Synology NAS, REFS, RDM
Had a client contact me this morning that is getting corruption errors on their backup copy jobs to the performance tier for their SOBR, but data appears to be making it out to their capacity tier, Wasabi, as far as they know (I didn’t check available restore points on that tier, but for sure the data is not sitting on the performance tier when I look at that filesystem).Background configuration is that they are using in both their primary and secondary datacenters a Synology NAS that is connected to their Windows Repo server as an RDM disk presented via ISCSI to their ESXI hosts, volume is formatted REFS, 64k blocks, the usual. I realize that NAS’s are less than desirable, and my standard procedure is now to no longer use REFS when using a NAS as the backing array, but this is where we’re at. I will point out that another copy job, not going to a SOBR but to the same NAS is copying data successfully. I can’t say for sure off the top of my head if it’s the same volume or if this is
Somewhat not Veeam related, but I figured there is a good group of folks in here to ask. Earlier we were discussing the largest VM’s we backup in VBR, and I noted that I was looking for maybe a solution to for offloading large amounts of archive data to Wasabi, but still wanting to access the data as a share. I sent a quick message over to my Wasabi rep and he referred me to the Wasabi Cloud NAS service which I do actually remember hearing about a few weeks ago but forgot about. Does anyone have any practical experience with it?And to keep it Veeam related, I was going to ask if anyone had any experience with how to back the service up, although when creating this post, I got a suggested topic…..which is only 6 days old and yet I missed it!But protecting 50TB of data is pretty expensive when using NAS backups, and for archive data that rarely access, so I’m thinking deploy the Veeam Agent for Windows on the server and backup up that volume that way…..though it would need to be teste
After watching last week’s Community Recap, I realized that I missed a great blog posting from @regnor about setting up Wasabi Immutable Storage for VBR. After reading this information, I realized that I, as a smaller service provider and MSP, require a more complex configuration to host multiple tenants in Wasabi and was inspired to share my configuration for setting up Wasabi when you have multiple tenants under one account that you don’t have to have accessing each others buckets.The magic lies in some S3 IAM policy work in place to prevent buckets from being visible and accessible to the wrong tenants. When I was setting this up, there wasn’t much information for doing exactly and S3 policies were completely new to me. Using Wasabi’s and Veeam’s instructions in the links and the end of this post didn’t work for me out of the box, so after asking around in the Veeam Community, R&D Forums and Veeam Subreddit and some experimentation, I was lead to the answers I needed. I hope
Tried looking for this, but does a VM have to have a minimum version for CDP Replication? Turning up CDP for the first time for two VM’s and getting the below error. Or am I going about this wrong? 6/27/2022 4:58:31 PM :: VM configuration for the initial sync completed with errors Error: The virtual machine version is not compatible with the version of the host 'esxi02'.

Curious what y’all are doing in this sort of situation. I have a client with a rather large VM (95 TB, consisting of VMDK’s at 100GB (OS), 30TB, 19TB, 20TB, 9TB and 17TB). The repo (Synology NAS) is about 90TB of usable space with a second NAS at 24TB. The volumes are ISCSI presented as RDM’s to the virtual Veeam server running 2012 R2. Volumes are formatted REFS.The backup job for this server is split into three jobs...one for the OS disk and the 9TB and 30TB disks (active data) to the primary NAS, one for the 19TB and 20TB disks (Archive Data) to the Primary NAS, and one for the 17TB disk (Archive Data from an old location) to the secondary NAS).Current backup jobs are forever forward incrementals keeping 31 days of restore points, but as such, we have defragments and compactions running, but they take a VERY long time (the first mentioned job has been running for almost 16 hours and is at 6%, and that’s with only 3 restore points due to an issue I fixed yesterday where the volume
