No, jobs will not be managed in B&R, they will still be managed locally or via Veeam Availability Console, management APIs.

For more advanced functionality (see my response above), you will need to use a paid version. The same refers for having technical support (standard, premium), all paid versions will have it included.


Vitaliy, Does this means that I can just install the VBR for Windows agent 2.0 Free edition for all of my Physical Windows Server so that no VEB is needed to install in each physical server ?
While the Backup can now be managed from the VBR console centrally.

is that correct ?

The backup can be managed via the Veeam Availability Console. However if you send them to a VBR repo they will also be visible in the VBR console (no managment from there besides restores) just like you can do now with VEB.

Please note that the free edition can't be managed by Veeam Availability Console. You need to have either the workstation or server edition for central management. The free version will continue to be managed on an individual basis directly on the physical machine where it is installed.

I was not able to join the webinar due to a scheduling conflict. I have a couple questions about Windows Agent. I currently use B&R for one Hyper-V host. I also have about 20 laptops on VEB that back up to my Veeam repository. I like VEB but do not like that I cannot configure it from my desk. It appears that Veeam Agent for Windows can be managed remotely but not by B&R. Will there be a cost associated with the Availability Console? And what will the cost be for Veeam Agent for Windows Workstation?

I should probably mention I utilize Veeam for my internal IT needs and not as a reseller.

Hi Eric,

Veeam Availability Console (former Veeam Managed Backup Portal) will remain free of charge. Unfortunately, do not know the price for each agent, so feel free to clarify that with your sales rep.

No worries, we have all breakouts recorded and available online for a review. Please take a look at Agents and VAC videos, that should clarify all the questions > https://go.veeam.com/launch-event.html

Thanks!

Even more unfortunate is that I am not a reseller/partner so I do not have access to the managed backup portal. Given this, I presume I will not be eligible to purchase Veeam Agent Workstation. Correct or should I reach out to a sales rep for clarification on that?

Standalone versions of Veeam Agents for Windows can be purchased by anyone, there are no restrictions on this.

But the portal is only available to resellers and partners, right? So I'm stuck without a way to centrally manage the agents.

Yes, VAC is going to be available for service providers and enterprise (all the details are available in the recording). Also keep in mind that all licensed Veeam Agents will have APIs which, for example, could be used to distribute backup job configuration.

P.S. removed Joe's answer to avoid confusion.

I have a couple of clarifying questions to ask, as I've looked on the Veeam website and in the forums here without finding exactly the information I need. I've also watched the recent announcement videos.

Situation
-- we have 2 x legacy physical Windows Server 2003 (yeah, I know!!!)
-- we run a VMware vSphere 5.5 environment for everything else
-- we have Veeam VBR 9.0 Update 2 installed

Currently we just back up the SQL databases on the physical servers. It would be nice to back up an entire image.

I understand that the new Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 (Server edition) which is coming December 2016 will allow a backup of those physical servers to our Veeam repository.

Can a backup image taken with the Veeam Agent 2.0 Server edition be restored at all, in any way, to a VM on our VMware hosts, or can it only be restored to Azure or a Hyper-V host?

If it can be restored to a VMware-hosted VM, can this be a "bare metal" type restore which creates the VM in the process, or do we first create the VM with appropriate virtual hardware and only then restore the image?

Last question (I hope) -- what Windows Server versions will the Veeam Agent 2.0 support? Can it be run on Windows Server 2003?

Thanks,
Frosty

I doubt that 2003 will be supported in the future!
