I'd also recommend trying to backup with Veeam Endpoint Backup (VEB) instead of VeeamZip.

[MERGED] Application-aware processing on the free version

Veeam Logoby vellum » Tue Jan 24, 2017 12:06 am

Hello:

I'm using the free version of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.0 and I was reading through the link below about using the application-aware processing for DCs which seems to ensure AD is backed up properly.
https://www.veeam.com/blog/active-direc ... overy.html

However, the free version doesn't seem to have the application-aware processing feature though.
Have you guys used the free version to backup & restore DCs without issues?

You're right in saying that Free edition does not have Application Aware Image Processing functionality. Therefore, you need to power off DC VM prior to backing it up. Thanks.

Thanks. I see from the earlier post of using Veeam Endpoint Backup as another possible option. Would this work on a VM and the server also being a DC?

Yep, you can backup DC VM from the inside, using Veeam Endpoint Backup. However, DC will be fully supported only in forthcoming Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 Server Edition. Thanks.

That's great news. Then for the restore (bare metal), if using the backup that was made inside the DC VM by Veeam agent for Windows 2.0, since it needs a target server to restore to when performing a restore, I should still regularly use Veeam Backup & Replication to backup the VM DC then use Veeam agent for Windows to restore over that VM DC, overwriting the existing volume?

You can perform bare-metal recovery to a computer even without any prior OS installation.
