Backup issue - Veeam - Requirement to restart teh RPC service.

One of my Exchange servers and a web server is failing to back up. Error:

Failed to prepare guest for hot backup. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: ISsnapshot in progress) Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error, The RPC server is unavailable. Code 1722. Error: RPC function call failed. Function name: (ISSnapshotinprogress). Target machine x.x.x.x. RPC error. The ROC server is unavailable. Code 1722

I need to restart the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) as a means to troubleshoot this error. Should I do this out of hours? Will it have a knock on effect on the users if I do it within office hours?

Hi,

Hope you will help or at least point me out to the right direction.

I'm using Veeam 9.5 update 4b with 5 Esxi host with Vcenter etc. I have installed Veeam on a dedicated Physical server (Windows 2019). The Disk to Disk part working absolutely fine but the problem is Disk to Cloud. I'm using Azure BLOB storage. Azure repository been crated and configured in Veeam. Also, created the SOBR (Scale Out Backup Repository).  As a testing purpose i have changed the "Restore Points to keep on disk' is set to 3. Also, set the "Move backup files older than 2 days'. Unfortunately even after 3 days the backups aren't uploaded to Azure container.

Any idea what could be the issue here?

I'm taking over a backup system that was managed by what appears to be SOMEWHAT trained monkey who didn't think that servers that weren't in the main domain needed domain credentials (Our company has several AD Domains - main, prod, dmz and etc.) He also didn't use any logic when creating jobs = the same job would be backing up machines from various domains at the same time regardless of the VM type... in general it's a mass.

For starters, I'd like to use power shell to get all vms in all the jobs that use .\Administrator as the backup credential... but when I use Get-VBRJobObject, even with the FL flag, I can't see the credentialss used:

PS C:\Users\davidsadm> Get-VBRJob |Get-VBRJobObject -Name "CTRACK" |fl

Hi,
I do a backup every single day with veeam and they always work BUT I now need to restore 1 file and when I click restore: it tells me that the last restore point is "53 days ago"...?!
What's wrong here
ripcrm2.png
I get that when I click on the ribbon bar "Restore" but if I click under Home / Backups / Disk and select backup job and right click on the server: then I see my 11 days incremental and a full that is 12 days old...

What's the diff?

Hello,
today we've got messages from iLO:
1. HPE iLO 5 AlertMail-043: (CRITICAL)  Slot 0 Smart Array - Drive is failed: Port 1I Box 3 Bay 2
2. HPE iLO 5 AlertMail-044: (CAUTION) Slot 0 Smart Array - Logical drive status changed to recovering

We've managed to get a new hdd since the server still runs on carepack.

I wanted to check the controller/array state via CLI and did:
./ssacli ctrl all show detail
and got:
Adapter: Microsemi Corp (Error: Not responding)
   Driver Name: smartpqi
   Driver Version: 1.0.2.1028
   PCI Address (Domain:Bus:Device.Function): 0000:3B:00.0

In vSphere Client for all drives inside array:
Unspecified 0 Dr_Stat_2I3_B007: In Critical Array - Assert

For Chassis:
System Chassis 1 SysHealth_Stat - Transition to non-critical from OK

Right now I don't know what to do...I'm a little scared to change the HDD twomorrow.
Before that I will do a fullbackup with veeam instance and try to restart the host to get the controller running again. Hopefully the host comes up. If not...Happy Halloween...

I didn't find any about those situation, so I'm asking you - hoping for an answer.

Thanks in advance.

I am using Veeam Backup Community Edition to backup 10 VMs. The VMs are Hyper-V and I back them up to a Synology NAS. Started getting e-mails recently with the following errors:

Any ideas?

Already have a server installed Veeam backup & replication version 9.5.0.1038 to backup virtual servers. Now have a physical MS SQL 2017 server. Is it good to install veeam agent with server license on the SQL server for backup? How to do so, configuration and what's additional license I need for backup the additional MS SQL server?

Dear Experts,

My Veeam B&R is unable to send test notifications to external email.

Is there anyway to do a comprehensive test to find out what is the cause?

A few years back, I put together a backup server to backup up our production VMs.  It's a SuperMicro server with two Intel Xeon E5520 Processors running at 2.27 GHz, 16 GB RAM, and running Windows Server 2012 with Veeam Backup and Recovery.  The OS is installed on SSDs in a RAID 1 configuration.  The storage for the backups are spindled drives within the same server.  Those drives are configured in a RAID 6 array with roughly 38 TB of available storage (using 6 TB drives).  

I am backing up 13 VMs totaling 2.1 TB.  I am keeping 14 restore points.  The backups are incremental with full backup on the last Friday of the month.  I keep 4 weekly backups, 12 monthly backups, and 7 yearly backups.  I am using Windows deduplication to minimize the size of the archived backups.  

Unfortunately, I recently ran out of storage space for the backups.  I was able to get to 4 yearly backups.  In all, the backups are 53.1 TB in size and consume 36 TB of disc space.  I only have one spare bay to add another hard drive.  I am looking for some suggestions on how to move forward.  

Would you recommend, simply replacing all of the 6 TB drives with 10 TB drives?  That should get me to 80 TB of usable space in a RAID 6 config.  Using Windows deduplication I should have quite a bit of free space to "grow" into.  Or, should I look at a NAS, such as one from Synology.  Or, is there a different path I should take?  

I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts?

Hello...

i created a backup job using a domain account. Once I disabled that account the job failed and gave me the following error
"Error : Unable to allocate processing resources. Error: All backup proxies are offline or outdated"

My question is how to make this job working even when I disable that domain account.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Dear Experts,

My customer using Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4.

We amended the host file of the Veeam server to point the IP address to each servers FQDN

The mistake happened when I created the backup jobs using the FQDN but the ip address was the production IP.

I have guided my customer to remove the backup agent but when he tried to run the backup job, he gets the following error:

Error: managed session 036b4aa3-e42a-46aa-b847-7367588c123f has failed

Hi Experts


I have a physical server running on Centos 7  and I have Nagios installed and configured on his host

Because we are using Veeam for backup and restore plus we have license for agents for physical servers

I configure the agent on this physical server and I managed to back up the host successfully

When I tried to restore a single file via Veeam console

As all you know Veeam uses a special appliance (( FLR )) to restore a single file

But I got an error

I open case with Veeam they told me no new info which I know before I open the case this is Veam answer

(( All 3 attempts to restore this file was unsuccessful, because Veeam B&R server was not able to connect to the Datamover that was deployed on the Nagios server the Datamover was deployed and started successfully:
So, I'll suggest checking the networking configuration between hosts 172.16.8.114 (Veeam B&R) and 172.16.9.6 (Nagios). It could be, that the port 2500 is closed, or, for instance, opened to establish connection from Linux machine, but closed for the Veeam B&R. If it is possible, as an isolation test, it would be great if you could lift all network restrictions between those hosts and try to restore this file after that ))
but I have no network restriction at all between Veeam server and Nagios server plus I disabled the firewall on Nagios and Veeam server also
please if you can give me n advice how can troubleshooting such issue step by step because Veeam support provides…

Dear experts,

Currently we are using Dell Tape library for backup the data of my company. I would like to ask which is the best technology for backup now a days. Cloud or Tape Library. (Less expensive and Easy to handle and maintain). We generate almost  5TB data per year. Can you suggest me please should I keep the existing one, or go for the cloud like Veeam?

Many Thanks in advanced.

Hi

I have purchased a Qnap server QNAP TS-1283XU-RP-E2124-8G 12 Bay Rackmount NAS with 96TB (12 x 8TB Seagate EXOS enterprise class SATA HDD 7200RPM)

I would like to use this for onsite backup, for backing up our Virtual servers using Veeam backup and backing up user files using BackupAssist software with  this Qnap server as a backup target.
In my situation, Is it best to use this Qnap as a NAS for backup Or do I need to set up the qnap with ISCSI target.

Please suggest , the best way of setting up this  and  help much appreciated.

Thanks

I am setting up Veeam.

I have configured a weekly Forward Incremental backup job with synthetic full backup on Thursday. The backup repository is a Synology NAS.

I would like to know if I must select the synthetic full backup or active full backup option in my case as the NAS does not support ReFs ?

What happens if I select both synthetic full backup and active full backup in parallel at the same time ?

I have a client with a 2016 Hyper-V Host running only two guests.  We are backing the server up with Veeam.

Just after a reboot of the host, the backups will run successfully for a few days, then start failing consistently.

The two errors that show up in the logs are:

Hyper-V Server 3280
'server' could not initiate a checkpoint operation: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (0x80070020). (Virtual machine ID 22148F7D-625F-4EBD-BB60-2057CE7E7918)

Hyper-V-VMMS 18014

Checkpoint operation for 'server' was cancelled. (Virtual machine ID 22148F7D-625F-4EBD-BB60-2057CE7E7918)

Most of the articles I have found so far refer to cluster environments.

Note that application aware checkpoints are configured.

Dear Experts, our Exchange 2016 server's Transport service was stuck and hung at Starting status. We changed the logon account from Network service to Local system but it did not help. Our resource (HDD, RAM) were still normal at that time.

After rename the old queue in TransportRoles data and create a new one, that service could run normally again.

We'd like to know the root cause of problem and how to prevent it to happen in the future. Can you please advise?

Many thanks!

Another question is: in case we use Veeam to restore the queue file, will it be okay to use Sunday backup version?
