Re: Feature Request: Surebackup and Windows Agent Backups

Post by marieelieg »

Hi Dima,

Yes, exactly. Since the Veeam support engineer said that both SQL AO nodes must be running in the same SureBackup job (in our case 1 node is virtual and the other is physical). Therefore, the same SureBackup job must run for a VM backup + an agent backup. In other words, add VM backups and agent backups in the same Application Group and run this App group in a SureBackup job.

Thanks!

Would just like to add my 2p here.

The data we are most concerned with restore testing is MS SQL.

Our SQL Servers are not currently virtualized.

Therefore we would really benefit from SureBackup for Windows Agent jobs.

Hello Conrad,

Thanks for sharing! Mind me asking if you are running Hyper-V or VMware? Thanks!

Hi,

I'm also in for that feature !

I'm working with a full on premise servers and workstations network with veeam windows Agent. And i need to do checks regularly that backups are restorable. So i do it manually with instant VM in Hyper V environnment and it works fine, But, it'll save me a lot of time to make it via Surebackup ! Especially with App Group when AD + Software X with logon AD based need to be tested.

Veeam guys, please, think to us that are stucked in the past with physical servers ;)
