This is using the Veeam agent for Linux for my CentOS and Redhat machines. I downloaded this agent - veeam-release-el6-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm from Veeam website. The setup is completed successfully on both machines. Initially, a dkms was failed with fail depencies. However, after the new dkms (ver 2.3.x) was downloaded and installed, setup completed without problem for both machines.

After that, I configured the scheduled job. My redhat machine can complete the job successfully. But not CentOS (v6.4), the backup straightway stopped with the error message as attached. Does this has to be related to the file system? What is the main reason why the backup failed in my CentOS system?

Thanks in advance.

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (1 year, 2 sockets) to all certified IT Pros. The license allows for the non-production use of Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 in your home lab, without any feature limitations. It works for both VMware and Hyper-V environments

Two Windows 10 64-bit OS computers are unable to backup to a QNAP TS-451 NAS while these laptops are connected to the Wi-Fi while running the free version of Veeam v.2 (see the screenshot).

However, these same two laptops are able to backup just fine while their Wi-Fi is disabled and they are plugged in with Ethernet cables on the same network.

What can be done to fix this issue so that these two laptops will be able to backup to the NAS while connected to the Wi-Fi and without being plugged in with network cables?

Hi EE,

I have a problem with one of my servers not replicating to an OFF-SITE location. I am able to replicate ON-SITE to the same host without a problem or even to another host in the same environment. Replicating via VPN to our data center give me the following error

"processing configuration Error: The operation is not allowed in the current state."

I would like to add that I am able to replicate a different server from a different location to this same host without any problems via VPN.

Thanks

On a Windows 10 computer where I have just installed the free Veeam backup program and have set the program to backup to a local NAS I receive the error message "Skipping scheduled backup because battery level is too low" even though the laptop is fully charged and is plugged into power.

What can be done to fix this issue so I can backup the laptop?

Hi All, i am consider the new Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 package at a site with two Host servers.

I have a pretty simple question that i cant seem to get an answer for, the Failover procedure is pretty straight forward and easy if i need to take the Source VM offline or its corrupted, my question is this, how do i get the Replicated Target Host VM online in the event hardware failure on the Source Host where Veeam is installed, if the Target Host has failed and i have no access to the Veeam console, how do i get the Replica VM online on the Target Host

I am sure there must be a simple solution, just cant seem to find anything

Thanks in advance

I did a Veeam Exchange restore and exported the three pst files to the desktop.  I then copied the files to my computer so that I could open them in Outlook 2016.  Unfortunately I get an error message saying "File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file Blah Blah.pst".  

I edited the files and added full permissions for myself and even the "Everyone" group but still get the same message, any ideas please?

Hi experts,

I would say my technical level as far as servers is about a 5 to 6 out of 10. The IT person setting up the server would be a 12. He makes sure I have good quality hardware and software, but he also doesn't always recommend the most expensive. For this reason, he has no issues using WSB, but I don't want something that bare bones, no matter how well it works. Plus, I am more willing to spend money. As a physician, I see myself working another seven years (which I know is bordering on too long for the server -- I guess I am misguided by the fact my Dell Edge 2900 lasted that long).

Just to give my setup, I am setting up a Dell T430 server with Windows Server Standard 2016 as the host, with two VM guests. One will run my SQL databases and the other will contains Essentials for Active Directory and will be the DC. I have only eight clients all Lenovos running Win 7 Pro. They are all identical. Modem is Arris by Spectrum with 70 down and 6 up. pfSense router (awesome, but I am glad he set it up) and a Cisco 26 port switch. I know this is more info than you need. My old server (Dell Edge 2900) will temporarily be the fax server, but it can be converted to something else -- maybe a replication machine? I can also get Azure for the cloud much cheaper than AWS.

So, now to my question. And, these are frustrating I know, because it is more about opinion. I generally end up splitting the points as there is no right or wrong answer. But, I am trying to decide among …

I have an Event Log question about vCenter 5.5.0.

I have a number of events in the middle of the night or either a user root@IPAddress or VSPHERE.LOCAL\administrator@IPAddress logged in and logged out as "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; MS Web Services Client Protocol.

The IP address referenced is a vm backup/monitoring server with Veeam Backup.

What I'm confused about is why it says "Mozilla/4.0". There's nothing connecting via Firefox, is this some other Mozilla process built in that I'm not aware of?

Hi All,

I'd like to know what's the impact on my Exchange Server 2013 SP1 Mailbox role when I enable the Circular logging for all mailbox DB and then reboot it after installing CAS role ?

I also backup this Exchange server using Veeam Backup which truncates the Transaction logs.

Would I be able to restore it safely or should I stop Circular logging ?
The reason I enable Circular logging is that I'm about to setup DAG with 3 others Exchange mailbox servers.

Hi Experts,

We are running nightly onsite backups for our server (DC + File Server) using Veeam, and I want to store an offsite copy of these backups on AWS. What AWS Service should i go for? Do you have any documentation or KBs i can refer to for setting this up?

People,

Due to Veeam backup requirement for the Storage Array snapshot on my HPE Lefthand, I can only use Thin Provisioned LUN for my VMFS datastore and thin VMDK (All thin).

So how do I set the monitoring system to email me when certain threshold is reached ?

I need to prevent the free disk space to become 0% to avoid the LUN becoming read only.

Is there any way to do it on the ESXi level as well to know about the Thin LUN provisioned space ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi
Had a nice salesman on the phone, reckons arcserve is market leader in backup and better than backup exec and veeam.
Any professional vouch for this?  we still suing BE and veeam for tape and VM backups respectively, although thinking of migrating from BE to veeam for tape also..
Thanks

Hi,

I noticed my Veeam backups stopped working after we had a power cut/ups failure. When I powered back up the VM Server and then the windows guests all seemed well.

I was able to connect via my vsphere client on my laptop to connect to the VM Host and fire up the windows guest servers. When I try logon to the same vm host from my veeam server using the same vshpere client/root username.password I get An unknown error occurred, unable to connect to remote server.

What brought me to this point was when I was checking my veeam backups after the power cut, they hadnt backed up. The error message I get from veeam software on the veeam backup server was Your connection was actively refused. Its as if my VM Host will not take connections which come from my veeam backup server IP address ?

Any ideas

Hi All,

What’s the impact when taking the backup of Exchange Server (no DAG) with Veeam (VSS aware or Application-Aware Processing enabled) when the server is currently running on Circular logging and the mailbox is being migrated from one server to another ?
More info about the application aware: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/vsphere/backup_job_vss_application_vm.html?ver=95 

The reason I ask this question is that the migration of the 2TB+ mailbox database is quite slow about 5 GB per hours, which is about 17 days with no backup running on the email server.

Any help and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Experts,

I am noticing that by exchange backups are using a lot of space. I am runnig a DAG with two CAS and two DB servers.  I am backing up the DB servers using the VEEAM Backup application.

What is the best\recommended way to backup my exchange DBs on the DB servers? I made four smaller databases on the DB servers.

Can just backup the active databases  (4)  on the DB servers or do I have to backup entire DB servers?


Thanks

Hi,

I've been using Veeam for years as a back/replication package.  I started getting an error a day or so ago that is rather odd.  

The first odd thing about it is the suffix:  vmdk.vmdk for both virtual disks.   Never seen this before.  Not sure if it was named that originally as I wouldn't normally check the suffix with a VM that has been running for years (and still is).

And as a production server, I haven't made any changes to the configuration at all.  The specific message is:

Processing configuration Error: Cannot replicate disk {LSI-1] ABS64/ABS64_1.vmdk.vmdk because its capacity was reduced.

The capacity of this drive is 60 gig and has been for years.  Any suggestions on how to diagnose this?

Running vSphere 6 essentials with current updates applied, and Veeam B&R 9.0.0.1715.

Thanks!

People,

Can anyone please share some explanation and the difference between the Storage Array Snapshot (HPE Lefthand) and the VMware snapshot?

Because at the moment, I've got Exchange server which is quite big in size (4.8 TB) size in total VMFS footprint, and when I look in the VMFS LUN free space on my HPE Lefthand SAN, I only have several hundreds of GB free space left. does it means the backup with Storage array snapshot will be failed or can cause the whole Storage array becoming Read Only due to no more disk space left at the SAN level ?

Hi EE,

I've been getting this error on a Veeam backup for over 2 months now.  There is not a lot of information online, so maybe you guys can help me. This is the error that I am getting:
