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 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

I contacted the vmware tech line and had a technician remote into my vSphere Client in order to resolve my lack of disk space.  This was accomplished but at the very next backup it was full again and I can't even start it.  I am very new to vmware and I absolutely need assistance.  I basically know nothing about how it works but our sysad left and it is now my responsibility to perform backups (VEEAM) and updates (WSUS) for my network.  I need expert advice "for dummies"

I use Veeam One Free to monitor several remote environments and have been happy with the results. Occasionally  Veeam One will falter and needs restarting.  I don't know this until I connect to the remote Veeam One Free server and try to launch it and it won't open up.  During that period I don't receive the appropriate alerts. Does anyone have any similar experience and hopefully a solution on receiving a notification or method to validate that Veeam is running properly?  I'm going to try using the "Other" e-mail notification to send a daily heartbeat message but I'm not sure it that accurately reflects the entire Veeam application.

Thanks,
Troy Taylor

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!

hi all  ,

i have currently strange issue . we have veeam backup connected to storage iscsi buffalo storage . we have one LUN mapped to esxi 6.0 host and presented to windows 2008 R2 server for backup .

now i am trying to do restore for one vm and suddenly the  disk where the vm goes offline and shows that " This disk is offline because of policy set by administrator " 

i have checked online regarding this issue and they said i have to set the SAN policy to Online . my concern is when set this option to online is it going to initialize the disk and format ?

if i right click the disk on Computer Management and set it to Online it will come online no problem but when do restore through veeam this issue raise .

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?
