Bare Metal Backup and Granular Restore for Exchange and AD

Post by jmarques68 » Jul 03, 2015 4:25 pm

We have a prospect that needs to backup and restore 4 physical servers, some of them are running Exchange and Active Directory, is there any limitation on the backup and on the restore functions if we plan to use Veeam Endpoint Backup? Can we execute granular restores of Exchange and AD items? Since this is a free product what are the support limitations, if the customer aquires Veem Backup and Replication will he have the same level of support on the Veeam Endpoint Backup?

Thanks

João Marques

Please check out these topic for the answer > PowerShell to manage backups and Endpoint Backup MS SQL backup? (please read my last reply). On top of that, please remember that you can use Veeam Endpoint to backup simple server configurations, without clustering etc.

P.S. You can you Veeam B&R Free edition to perform application item recoveries from endpoints backup files.

[MERGED]: Protect physical AD Server

Post by Tos » May 12, 2016 10:27 am

Hi
Our customer want to protect physical Active Directory Server by using Veeam Endpoint Backup Free.
Do Veeam Endpoint Backup Free support Active Directory Server ?
If so, do you have some concrete usage cases ?
Is there anything that I should be careful of ?
Regards
Toshi

Hi Tos,
Do Veeam Endpoint Backup Free support Active Directory Server
VEB supports Windows Server 2008 R2 and above (except core editions). Application level restore is supported from the VBR side.

Hi Dima
Thanks for reply.
Our customer use Win 2008 32bit as AD Server.
They don't use Application level restore. They want non-authoritative restore only.
But, "VEB supports Windows Server 2008 R2 and above" so can't VEP support Win 2008 32bit as AD Server even if they don't use Application level restore ?

Hi Tos,

Unfortunately, operating systems below the system requirements are not supported.
