Hello,
is it possible on RDX drives to backup with VEB?

Best regards

Hello and welcome to the community Marco,

If the RDX system can be mounted to the OS with the native tools ( in order to be presented as a regular volume) or presented as a file share – yes you can use it, but please keep in mind that there is no additional care for RDX systems. Since Veeam Endpoint Backup is completely free, please, test the described scenario and share the experience with the community.

P.S. I wonder if the RDX can be somehow managed by the existing Endpoint’s rotated media mechanism.

Hi Marco,

How did your testing go with this?

I am interested in using VEB to backup to RDX media too.

Thanks

Hello Chris,

What is your RDX device? I know that our QA team has made several tests on internal RDX system and they were successful.

[MERGED] Using RDX rotated drives as backup destination

Veeam Logoby Jon Bradley » Tue May 10, 2016 9:00 pm

Is anyone out there using RDX rotated drives as a destination for Veeam Endpoint jobs? I know it works for Veeam B&R but was unsure how it works for VEB. I know you can setup multiple USB HDD's as multiple destinations but I was unsure how that would work with the RDX drive considering the driver letter stays constant. IE is Veeam writing to the drive letter or does it go by GUID or.... ?

Hi Jon Bradley,

I believe you should use the local drive destination – mounting will be performed by RDX system itself. Please let us know how it goes.

Jon - have you had any luck with rotated RDX media and VEB? Most all my customers have VBR to look after their virtual infrastructure, but we are still stuck with BackupExec to backup the VBR server to tape or RDX, and BackupExec seems to be getting worse and worse every week so I'd like to move these sites over to VEB, and be able to share the RDX with the VBR jobs.

I haven't tested it yet, but plan to in the next few weeks.

VEB works *perfect* with RDX.

I use it by myself with many customers on USB2, USB3 or SATA!

Every cassette gets its own complete backup set.

Hi Ralf,

Thanks for sharing. To clarify, you've set up RDX as a regular local drive target, right?
