Nutanix Mine with Veeam

Post by Coldfirex »

Would Veeam have any more information on this product? I am curious what this means for Veeam for AHV, and if nothing, what the main differences are.

Mine with Veeam is a dedicated AHV cluster running Veeam Backup and Replication server and repository.

It is a highly available VBR server and repository, and can be used to backup any systems supported by VBR.

So it can backup VMware clusters, HyperV, AHV, and physical systems. There is no requirement that Mine with Veeam needs to be used with or exclusively to backup production AHV systems. The only 'restriction' is that the underlying Nutanix system that Mine is operating on does not support FC, so if you need to access FC devices from VBR, another server/proxy would need to be used to provide the VBR server on Mine with Veeam access to this HW.

Because it is a dedicated 'backup cluster' other workloads are not run on the Mine with Veeam cluster.

@andr@andre.simard For Veeam Backup & Replication v10 on the Mine appliance not yet. We are actively testing Mine with v10 internally and hope to support Mine+v10 soon.

You can upgrade to Mine (installed with VBR 9.5) to V10 now. We should have KB articles up on this shortly.

We do not suggest you perform AHV upgrades to Mine at this time, but that will be updated in 4-6 weeks.

Is there any documented guidance regarding upgrading the VBR v10.0.0.4461 that comes integrated with the Nutanix Mine with Veeam, to newer builds such as v10.0.0.4854?
Our deployment consultant mentioned this isn't supported or permitted due to the Nutanix Mine integration requiring the build it shipped with to remain as-is.
Eric are you able to shed any light on this topic?

You can update VBR to new builds.

Few items
- you are running Mine V2
- you deployed the latest Mine patch kit
- your cluster is otherwise healthy and not in a space shortage situation

VBR upgrades to V10 updates should be fine (unless something in patch specifically says not to (none that I'm aware of))

VBR 10 -> VBR 11 upgrades are fine. Your want to wait for VBR 11 GA at least, and you want to ensure everything is ok for the customer for the new AHV V2.1 proxy. Ie a VBR 11 upgrade will change the AHV proxy to V2.1, so both should be considered in this upgrade
