Failure with new Repository

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

Failure with new Repository

Veeam Logoby szwicker » Wed Nov 09, 2016 12:52 am

I setup a new repository and attempted to point my Endpoint jobs to it. They're all failing immediately with Error: Backup repository (string) was not found.
This new repository is a Windows 2016 server with REFS.

Seth,

Are you using B&R 9.5? Or B&R 9?

Hi Seth,

Backup to repository with ReFS is not supported by current version of VEB. It will become available in VAW 2.0 which is going to be releases soon.

But it's failing even if I set it back to the previous respository?

Make sure that permissions are set correctly on VBR repository level. If that does not help, please open a case vie VEB Control Panel > Support and post case ID to this thread. Thank you.

Does the REFS rule apply to the Cloud Connect side as well?
So, let's say I backup an en endpoint to an NTFS drive but I'm running REFS on the CC side when it's copied offsite.
How does that work?
And does Endpoint support SOBR on the Cloud Copy side also?

Hi Seth,
ReFS on the cloud connect side: Yes, that will work

For the Endpoint... 2 different answers...

1. If you use VEB 1.5 today and store your data on a B&R 9.5 repository, and from there do a backup copy job to a CC... That will work. However, the repository on the on-prem B&R server cannot be a SOBR repository (see next :-))
2. In the future, with VAW 2 (new name of VEB) SOBR / ReFS through direct cloud connect configuration (meaning you take a backup on your endpoint and you store it immediately on the cloud connect repository... cool new feature coming :-)) then yes all of the above is supported but will probably require an update on the B&R side the moment VAW is GA.

Hope it helps
Mike

Ok, so far now: Backup to an on prem NTFS Repository and that can be copied to a CC SOBR running over REFS, correct?

Frankly speaking, fast merge functionality is available when you are using VBR as a destination for upcoming Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0. VEB and upcoming VAW 2.0 can use ReFS as a target but no additional functionality will be provided.

That should work.
