now we are searching for a cheap solaution as a replacment for our data domain

for Newrker we are thining to bug Veeam

but now my quastion only about data domain

i want to ask if i can buy server with huge amount of local HDD disks with raid controller  and 1000 ethernet interfaces

Hi all,

We have a one-off backup of an Exchange 2010 server from around 40 days ago.

I have it running in a Veeam SureBackup vlab environment and need to retrieve some Message Tracking logs from it.  The server is configured to keep 30 days of logs.

I am finding that when I try and look at the message tracking logs they are empty.

I have a feeling that it may have something to do with either log truncation or the time on the VM purging the logs (the time/date on the VM updates to the current live time, even though it is a VM from 40 days ago).

Interestingly, if I use Veeam explorer to browse the vbk, the folder which contains the "Message Tracking Logs" doesn't exist, suggesting that it is probably nothing to do with the time.

Any ideas what is happening here?  And how can I access the logs?

Hello!

We are looking for the best strategy for backing up a Domino 9 server. We have done a little research and it appears that Domino 9 is not VSS aware so our concern is that we will have trouble backing up the live database. We would like to use a tool like Veeam or StorageCraft so that we can capture the whole image of the server as well as the files and database. For most applications this has never been an issue, but now that we are tasked with backing up Domino we're a little stuck. We opened a case with IBM's Domino support and the tech basically told me to copy the contents of the data drive to a safe folder elsewhere. Wow. Could we get some guidance here?  Thanks!

Hi,

Could you advise the backup method used to take the backup of physical Windows machines using Veeam backup.

I understand, we need to install Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to the machines, but what back method can we use? can we setup a incremental, synthetic backup using veeam or just a copy backup using Veeam agent.

Regards

Hi,

Does Veeam backup support storage virtual machine (svm) backup? We have file shares (13 TB, via both NFS and CIFS) configured via svm in Netapp 8020 storage and can access from servers/clients using UNC path.

I have found the article "https://forums.veeam.com/veeam-backup-replication-f2/back-up-a-cifs-share-t8490-15.html" which says in Veeam B&R 9 we can select the file share UNC paths as source and do a file copy job. But this doesn't support incremental and full backup methods and we need to take a 13 TB copy backup daily. Is there any improvements in Veeam 9.5.

Could someone advise a more feasible solution to this.

Regards

I have a Veeam setup - 2 HV hosts, backing up 8 machines via Veeam.    That is all working fine.

For a special project we are bring in an 8TB NAS drive (QNAP) that will be added to the domain and users will access the files. (current plan is they will access the NAS directly via domain auth)

What is the best way for me to backup that data to the existing Veeam infrastructure?

I have veeam standard running in one location wich produces monthly backups. Instead of transporting the backup device backwards & forwards I want to be able to use Veeam backup copy.
I have installed a trial of VEEAM enterprise on a server in my office
setup WAN accelerators for local &the remote office (running standard)
I can import backups from the remote repository into the enterprise version
But I cannot get a backup copy job to run...
if I select the virtual machine from the infrastructure - all I get is no restore points. I have left it running continuously  & with the monthly backup finishing it still said no restore points
Enterprise does not pickup the VM from the imported backups
There is no local backup job to import it from as the backups are run on the standard version in the remote office.

All I want to do is copy the monthly backup from one office to another using the WAN accelerators as we have very constrained bandwidth in one location

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 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?

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:

What do you recommend and why?
We currently use Shadow protect on all virtuals and physicals however I am hearing that Veeam offers much more...

The SMTP on Veeam doesn't want to deliver messages.  We use Checkpoint Safe At Office 500 Internet Security Appliance.  Where do I check to see if SMTP port is being blocked?  Maybe a quick URL link for testing delivery of email of gmail messages would be helpful too.

Hi,
I Have Veeam Backup and Replication 5.0 and I "Import Backup" using the "Index file list".
The file I am looking for is not located where it should be and I would like to do a search in all the other folders of that backup to see if it would be somewhere...
Cannot find any "FIND" button!
And what about that "Index file List" when I imported that backup: what's the purpose of that and how can I use it?

Greetings,

I had a vCenter server crash. I was going to upgrade anyway so I built a new one. I cloned then reconfigured Veeam jobs to point to the new vCenter server and added VMs from the new vCenter server. Jobs are successful but 2 VMs have Veeam snaphsots, even after successful, full backups.

I tried to consolidate but that didn't work. The consolidation ran about 30 seconds and then finished with no VMware error but also didn't remove the snapshots.

How can I get rid of these? Veeam support first said to consolidate and when that didn't work they said to Delete All from snapshot manager.

Should I delete all? The snapshots on one VM are each about 30 GB. If not Delete All, then what can I do?

Thanks a lot

We have encountered a very strange issue with our ESX4 recently. We've been using VEEAM for replication from one ESX to another ESX, and it's been working for a very long time without any issue.

Recently, one of the guest VM failed the VEEAM replication repeatedly. I tried to do a clone from the vCenter (v5.5) but it failed as well.

But somehow it's only happening on one particular guest VM. I tested on other guest VM in the same datastore, cloning to the same destination ESX, and it was working just fine.

So far, i tried following approaches but all failed

Ran VM Converter again on the problematic VM.
  • Tried to clone the new VM.
  • Tried cloning to a different ESX
  • Tried cloning while the guest VM was turned off
  • Migrated the guest VM to another ESX and another datastore

All of the above failed at the end. I also checked the vpxa.log on the esx host, it had some error logs as following. However, I couldn't find any useful information on the web regarding these log messages. Btw, there's no changes on our network environment whatsoever recently. I don't understand why it's only happening on one particular VM. Any help is much appreciated!

I get the error within VEEAM:

Error: Can't delete replica when it is being processed.

I get this error when trying to replicate a copy to another vsphere environment.

I am using VEEAM 9.

Does any one have any idea what the message mean and how I can fix this?

Hi Experts,

I am using Veeam backup and replication 9 to backup my domain controller and file server on site. I want to setup veeam to copy backed up data to AWS Storage Gateway once a day. I tried to follow this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f6NWEs4EeE. It has started backing up, However the transfer rate is as low as 3Mbps. Am I doing something wrong here? Is there any setting that I need to change here to fasten up the offsite backups?
