Veeam B&R & Endpoint Backup

Veeam Logoby gpjonesgt » Thu Nov 19, 2015 10:47 am

Hi There,
Quite new to using Veeam and currently we have Veeam Backup And Replication used in our Organisation. We want to start using Veeam Endpoint Backup to backup a few Windows PC's that we have.

Now I have created a New Backup Repository on our Veeam Server (Backup And Replication), what do we need to do next then so that we can use the Backup and Replication Suite to manage the Backups and Restores on these Windows PC's

Thanks

We have Veeam Backup & Replication Version 8.0 Version 8.0.0.2084 so I take it we will need to upgrade somehow?

You're on the latest version (Update 3) of Veeam B&R v8, so there is no need to upgrade anything.

Currently Veeam ONE does not support reporting on VEB jobs, but thanks for the feedback!

Any ideas why the Wake on Lan feature wouldn't work?
The wake on Lan feature is turned on, on the network card and is plugged in VIA Ethernet. And the setting in the BIOS has been set up. But for some reason a backup hasn't been done today as the PC was off. And I understood that the PC would wake up to do this?

Unfortunately it won’t wake up. Wake on LAN feature works for remote server’s connections, however, software installed inside the offline machine cannot wake it up.

Have you got any recommendations of a software that I could use to wake this PC up so it can back up overnight?

Thanks

WolCMD from http://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/wake-on-lan-cmd

Run it on your server as a scheduled task before the VEB runs.

gpjonesgt,

Can you elaborate why you need that? Thanks

Hi there,

Basically these are Windows PC's that we have around the organisation and there is never a consistent time where these are on. So I was thinking would it be possible to have a backup executed twice a week maybe? But id like these to happen even if the pc was off. So WOL hopefully would sort that issue for me?

We need to make sure we have consistent backups of the PC's thats the issue here.

Thanks

Use the PC bios

That is what I have done on our Dell systems and it works perfectly with the Veeam EndPoint set to shut down after backup.
