The awesome 8th feature of Veeam B&R v7: ‘Backup copy job’

So Veeam B&R v7 has been announced. For me, the 7 pre-announced features (support for vCloud Director, vSphere Web Client, the Veeam Explorer for Sharepoint, Virtual Lab for Hyper-V and replicas, archive to tape and finally self-service 1-click restore) are good enhancements to the product, but not earth shattering. There are, however, two features that you could call just that. In this three-part blog post, I’ll dive into each of them while also shedding some light on the licensing and offering my own insights and conclusion. Let... [Lire la suite]

Veeam Backup & Replication 7 preview: integration with vSphere Web Client

The countdown to Veeam Backup & Replication 7 is going on, and its release is scheduled for the third quarter of 2013. As already mentioned in a previous article, Veeam is going to tease us with the 7 main features of the new release, one per month.

The Case of the Unexplained Windows Server 2012 Replica Kerberos Error : 0x8009030C 0x00002EFE

Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Replica is a new feature that replicates all changes on a virtual machine to a counterpart virtual machine hosted by a different server. Replica overview and deployment considerations can be found here. This feature is well documented so I'll skip setup and installation and strictly focus on troubleshooting. I received a call from one of my customers who was trying to evaluate this feature for a disaster recovery scenario in test.

Symantec admits all its VMware backup customers are in danger

Modern Architecture Wins Every Time: Veeam Customers Unaffected Last week Symantec published a blog post scaring all VMware customers about backups on vSphere 5.1. In this post they made insinuations that backup vendors claiming support for vSphere 5.1 were misleading their customers and putting them into unsafe recoverability conditions. While we’d like to think that Symantec did this as a service to their customers, we believe this is just another example of a Symantec trying to use scare tactics against their biggest...

Au revoir Repadmin /showreps !

Suite au conseil d'un collègue, je vous propose de découvrir un outil qui permet de remplacer Repadmin en étant plus agréable à l'oeil.. il s'agit de AD Replication Status Tool. Ce logiciel permet d'avoir un visuel des réplications AD à un instant T. Relativement léger, il permettra lors d'audit ou de préventives d'avoir un rapide état des lieux de l'AD entre les différents contrôleurs de domaines.   https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30005   Merci à Damien Charbonnel pour cet outil! Il faut un... [Lire la suite]
