Endpoint to backup Veeam B&R Server?

Veeam Logoby lando_uk » Thu Oct 08, 2015 9:35 am

Hi

My main Veeam Backup and Recovery master server is physical, its a proxy and repository too, can I just install endpoint on this and use it to backup the c: and then store on an offsite repository?

Thanks.

Hi,

Actually, you can use Endpoint even to backup the whole VBR to some offsite repository that is connected to that VBR. The only limitation is that you'll need to stop all VBR activity before doing a backup.

You don't need to stop services - just stop the jobs. Sorry for being unclear.

It would be good in v9 VBR if this function was part of the suite, an enhancement to the current Database Backup feature as there are a lot of people with physical master servers who don't have a decent backup.

Actually, I don't think you need to stop anything on the VBR server when running a VEB backup job. There should be no impact on the VEB job.
