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 ;)

Any news about that feature ? It's been 6 almost months.

It will be very helpful for a lot of people to know if it's something that we can consider, i think ;)

Thanks !

+1 from me,
we're in the process of rolling out the veeam agent on >1000 physical servers (both Linux and Windows) and sure would like to be able to use SureBackup to verify the recoverability of these servers. We need this to be an automated process which is why SureBackup is such a nice feature.

Hi Vincent,

Thanks for +1, noted!
Wondering if you can share a little bit more details on your servers park:
- what is % of Windows vs Linux?
- what is % of Static IP vs Dynamic IP(including DHCP reservation)?

Hi Egor,

the numbers are a day-by-day value. The last report i have available is 573 Windows servers and 785 Linux servers. To be honest I hope these numbers will reduce over time as we virtualize more servers. But since we run virtuals servers for over 15 years I don't have high hopes for this be a fast proces.
All our servers (should) have fixed a fixed IP address.

Thanks for the feedback Lincoln. Are you interested in SureBackup support for Linux agent jobs as well or you are Windows-only shop?

Hello Randall,

Can you please clarify what type of physical machines you want to validate via SureBackup job (Windows/Linux/Mac)? If you have Linux agents please let us know what distros are you using? Thank you in advance!

+1 I have been approached by a customer who wants to test Hyper-V VMs with Surebackup as part of their backup and restore strategy, because his DC is not yet virtualised and only agent backup i suggested a quick P2V until this feature is released :) Windows only shop no Linux etc
