Hello!

You're in the right place. Start with creating VB&R repository like described in the said User Guide page and after that right click on the created repository and configure 'Agent Permissions'
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=20

After that, you'll be able to use VB&R's repo as a backup target for Veeam Endpoint(Agent)

I must be misunderstanding something, based on the reply earlier, I was lead to believe that I could use the unlicensed version of VBR as a backup repository target for the free VEB client (ver 1.5 at this time). However, when I try to point the VEB client to the repository, I get an error message stating "Veeam Backup Free Edition servers are not supported as backup targets."

So did I misinterpret was I was told earlier, or am I doing something wrong?

Hi Carlton,

That won’t work. You should have a license installed in your VBR server. In case of new version – Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0, you can deploy agent license on top of Veeam B&R free and use it as a target.

What exactly do you mean by "deploy agent license on top of Veeam B&R free"?

I applied for an NFR, but got an autoresponse back saying that the person that handles that will be out for the next 30 days or so.
Is there someone else that can issue NFR licenses?

You can request the license here or use the contact sales form.

It appears the NFR gives you "2 sockets". I assume that means that 2 VEB instances can connect at the same time, is that correct?
What happens if more than 2 try to connect, do the one's that get denied retry or do they just fail the backup attempt and wait until the next scheduled one? As context, all I am using VBR for is a backup repository for a handful of workstations running VEB.

Veeam B&R is licensed by physical sockets of the VMware/Hyper-V hosts it backs up/replicates VMs from. Doesn't apply to your scenario.

How would you restore the entire server if you're using VAW w/VBR Free on the server that is affected? Isn't the VBR where the backup is being stored at required to access the backup file to perform a bare metal restore?

If I have been previously having the VEB clients backup to a share on a file server, is there a way once I create a VBR repository to import those backups into the repository so all of the clients don't have to start over and do complete full backups?

Should I open that from with VEB or VBR, or does it matter?

At this moment it is not possible out of the box. There is a workaround (see http://www.virtualtothecore.com/en/send ... d-connect/ for more details).

This request seems to pop up more and more so our PM and engineers are aware of it and will take this as a count for the feature request ;-)

Hope it helps
Mike


Thanks for the workaround, I think I will use it to schedule different backup jobs, for different purposes, on the same PC. For example a monthly job to backup an entire system partition of a disk and a daily file backup job for another partition. Anyway I really hope to find this feature (multiple backup jobs) integrated in the next VAW release/update.
