In a previous post, I described how you can configure a virtual proxy to access an iSCSI storage, in order to test DirectSAN backups. Veeam has an additional functionality, called Storage Snapshots, that improves even more DirectSAN backups performances when you have a supported storage. I’m going to show you in this post how you can configure it in your lab.
One of the nice features of Veeam Backup & Replication, when it comes to backup speed, is the possibility to use DirectSAN as its backup method on vSphere environments. This option offers the best performances, but has some precise requirements at the hardware level. It could be easy to comply with them in a production environment, but what if you want to test it in your lab, where usually hardware options are limited? Don’t worry, there is a solution!
A quick post to announce you the availability of Patch 1 for Veeam Backup & Replication 7.0. the new patch raises the build number from 188.8.131.520 to 184.108.40.2065 (so check the build numberafter the upgrade). An important note, this patch DOES NOT introduces support for vSphere 5.5 or Hyper-V 2012 R2, support for the latest […]
In a Veeam Backup & Replication environment with a high number of jobs, being sure the configured settings are all the same can be a tough task. Even if there are defined procedures to create new jobs, and every IT admin has these procedures, an error can always happen.
If you have few jobs to check, you can think about opening all of them one by one anche verify this parameter, but as the number of jobs grows, these checks becomes nearly impossible.
A nice solution is to leverage the complete Powershell support offered by Veeam Backup & Replication.
In un ambiente Veeam Backup & Replication che presenta un numero elevato di job, garantire che le loro configurazioni siano omogenee può essere talvolta complicato. Sebbene vengano definite delle procedure di creazione dei vari job e assegnate al personale che gestisce il prodotto, l’errore umano è sempre dietro l’angolo. Prendiamo un esempio. Si utilizzano una […]
I’ve seen recently a fair amount of search about this topic in my blog, so I decided to write a quick post about it. It can happen for several reasons you need to interrupt a job in Veeam Backup & Replication. Veeam initiate the stopping procedure, and for a certain amount of time you see […]
Ho visto ultimamente questa ricerca nei log del mio blog, ho quindi deciso di farne un veloce post. Può capitare per svariati motivi di dover interrompere l’esecuzione di un backup di Veeam Backup & Replication. Il job viene arrestato e si vede in console per un periodo di tempo più o meno prolungato, lo stato […]
Another post about the use of the new Veeam Backup & Replication 7.0 in conjunction with vCloud Director. After the configuration of backup jobs with vCloud Director, you can also allow your users/customers to restore files or VMs by themselves, without any need for help from the Veeam Backup operators. First, you need to publish Enterprise […]
