Veeam backup

Hi Experts, Veeam 7.5 is used on a VM for backing up 2 VMs. The Veeam server is also virtual. Is it possible to store file data on this Veeam backup server and back it up as well?

Yo can backup the config in the options, it basically pulls all the info thats in the database so you can restore veeam server pretty simply!

You can have a local repository and have backups stored there.

You could run a copy job to copy the locally stored jobs off somewhere else

Thanks for getting back.  I don't mean the config data for Veeam but the actutal user data/files stored on the server. Can that be backed up?

You want to think about what happens if you lose all your virtual environment, how would you restore it.

Yes you can store the backups on your Veeam Virtual server.....

But massive single point of failure, so store your backups on a NAS, or Windows Server, which is not on your virtual environment.

Windows Share (CIFs) or NFS is supported.

Yes in short Veeam can back itself up.  If you have a complete failure and lose Veeam you would need to install a new vm with Veeam and import the backup of your original Veeam server and then once it is restored it would be able to restore your other backups.
