[Feature Request] Veeam Agent for Windows and HPe StoreOnce

Post by a.volpi@quadria.fr » Oct 11, 2017 2:11 pm

Hello,

I'd like to file a feature request regarding the impossibility for Veeam Agent for Windows to use a Catalyst repository through a Veeam B&R Server.

Thank you.

Hello Alexandre,

Indeed, VAW does support HPE StoreOnce only as a CIFS target. We plan to improve the integration in the next major versions. Thank you for your feedback!

Thank you for your reply.

I just want to make sure the feature request has been acknowledged.
I'll report back to the engineer helping me with my case.

Again, thank you very much.

Thomas,

We are in the final stages of releasing a new update. As Anton stated in his digest, RTM of VBR 9.5 is shipped to service providers, which means that it should be GA in a couple of weeks. The same for a new version of VAW (2.1). However, note that these will have really wanted functionality, but it is not a major release.

Thanks
Mike

Hi,

Update 3 for VEEAM B&R 9.5 delivered an awesome way of managing the agents. But: I still cannot use the StoreOnce Catalyst as Repository for VAW, even after Upgrade to 2.1? Am I doing something wrong or is this correct?

Greetings,
Thomas

You are not doing anything wrong. VAW 2.1 still does not support Catalyst repositories as targets. If you want to write such backups to a StoreOnce you must create a CIFS share on it, create that as a separate repository, and target the backup jobs to it.

Do we have a planned release for VAW that will support Catalyst datastores?

Thanks
Steve

+1 for added functionality! I spent a chunk of time today trying to figure out why VBR wouldn't list the StoreOnce repository, until I finally found this thread. Creating a CIFS repo is an ok workaround, but native functionality would be much better.

Hi Guys,

Some of you are stating in this thread (see quote) that backup to a StoreOnce CIFS share is supported with VAW, but in the product requirement https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=21, it is stated that backup to HPe StoreOnce Storage Appliance is not supported without specifying wether this is for Catalyst Only.
Can you please clarify if something has changed or if this is just an error / lack of detail in the system requirement article ?

Thanks for your insight.
