So far my experience with VEB has been pretty good. I'm glad to hear they have come out with a new version. My main concern or hope for this product is that configurations can be managed from VBR.
We have about 4 physical severs we backup with VEB, and soon to add about 4 more. We only backup these physical servers once a month after we have updated them. Scheduled backups are turned off on VEB and we have to manually connect to each machine and initialize each backup to our repository.
With this new version, can I login to my Veeam Server, hosting VBR, right click the VAW jobs that show in there, and click "run job"? As of now right clicking any one of those VEB jobs showing in VBR gives you no options to choose from. In all honestly besides it showing up in VBR as reminder that's its installed on a server, is completely useless. It's like it mocks you. All VM jobs can be configured, restored, and what not. But the VEB jobs cant be. Another big thing is that I like to specify on my VM backups to only keep 1 copy on my server before overwriting the next days. These are written to tape afterwards. Since Veeam is incapable of backing up directly to tape, I'm forced to use disk space a temporary medium. But VEB, continues to create incremental. I'd rather a new full backup each time if run it, overwriting the existing. My first restore with an Veeam incremental failed that it couldn't decompress LZ4 block. Deleted full/incremental, ran full, worked perfectly.
