Hmm, I thought full functionality mode should be enabled automatically upon installation of the agent license... Dima?

Veeam B&R free edition should be switched automatically to full functionality mode when you add the agent license (VAW or VAL).

EDIT: Please let me know when its not working /under what circumstances and share your license setup. I'll ask QA folks to confirm (feel free to send me a PM if required)

[MERGED] When will backing up a cifs share be available

Veeam Logoby scottc9 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 6:25 pm

I believe that this was an early promise and was wondering if it will actually be implemented and is being actively worked on, or if this will become a pipe dream. We have to maintain a second backup solution to manage cifs backups and that is not an ideal scenario. especially when that solution is CommVault. :(
Thanks

Hi and welcome to the community!

Backing up a CIFS share is on our roadmap already, however I cannot give you ETA at the moment.

Thanks

Hi all,

So nearly a year around and was just wondering if there was any update on the matter of VAW 2.0 on Server Core yet?

Best regards,

Is it possible to run the VAW inside a VM already backed up by VB&R?

Chris,
Unfortunately, core editions are still not supported.

troyhiatt,
No limitations, but can you please clarify why you want to protect the same VM twice? Thanks in advance.

My question was directed at having a different retention policy requirement at a folder level inside the VM that is longer than the retention policy of the whole VM. Say for a folder that has compliance information or product versioning data. I don't see a way to have differing folder level policies. Thoughts?

Troy,

Sounds reasonable. The only issue I can imagine is a backup schedule overlap.

Re: Veeam Agent for Windows 2.1

The new 2.1 release noted claim "NEW Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.1 works with Veeam Availability Suite™ 9.5 Update 3 to deliver Availability for ALL workloads — virtual, physical, and cloud — from a single management console, extending Veeam’s leadership position from being the best for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V to #1 Availability for any app, any data on any cloud, and allowing customers to completely get rid of legacy backup forever!"

Does this mean that we can now backup our CIFS shares with the agent? That is a critical workload that requires legacy backup methods but i do not see it in the release notes, or does the claim really mean ALMOST ALL workloads?

Hi Scott, CIFS shares (NAS devices) cannot be backed up with VAW 2.1. The feature you're asking for is in our top priority list for the future releases of Veeam products.
