1-2. Since SBS server is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, then it should be supported by both products.
5. To do that, you should import backups to the Veeam B&R Free version and then use Veeam Explorer for Exchange > Restoring Application Items
7. Yes, you can restore backups as VHDX disks, but please keep in mind that VAW/VEB is not a P2V tool.
11. Yes, that's possible. For consistent backups you should be running VEB/VAW inside the guest as opposed to the host-level. Recovering virtual machines will be similar to restoring regular files from the backup.
Can anyone here confirm successful backup AND restore of a SBS 2011 with VEB and VAW?
One can make a backup of an entire SBS 2011 machine with VEB or VAW, then import this backup into Veeam B&R free and from within this application you can start Veeam Explorer for Exchange and restore application items?
Does this also work from a backup in "Entire Computer" mode?
Would this be possible going this way or what steps are missing compared to a P2V tool?
If we perform the backup from the host level we will only get crash-consistent backups of the VMs, right?
If we want to restore VMs from a host level backup performed by VEB/VAW we would restore the virtual disk files and the machine description files/meta files and import this into Hyper-V, right?
In case of such a host level backup it would also be possible to perform incremental backups, right?
Does VEB / VAW also use Veeam's forever forward incremental backup technology?
Is it possible to create a repo with Veeam Backup Free Edition for Hyper-V and then perform a backup using Veeam Endpoint Backup Free (VEB) or Veeam Agento for Windows directly into this repo? Or is this only possible with the non-free version?
Does import here mean that the existing VEB backup set will be copied into the repo so that we need extra space in the size of the VEB backup set? Or will the backup set just be loaded from the place were the VEB backup set is stored (with no extra space requirements)?
Is it possible to restore whole VMs to a destination Hyper-V server or is it only possible to restore their VHDX files?
If we chose "File level backup" as backup mode in VEB: Is this file level backup VSS aware
It’s up to you. You can copy backup files to your repository or import backup from existing location.
Is the following procedure possible?
1. Create a backup of an entire computer to a SMB share on a Windows machine. Product used for performing backup: Veeam Endpoint Backup Free (VEB Free) or Veeam Agent for Windows Free (VAW Free).
2. Import this backup into Veeam Backup Free Edition for Hyper-V, running in free mode.
3. Restore of single files from the imported backup using Veeam Backup Free Edition for Hyper-V, running in free mode.
Synthetic full backup:
VAW: You announce that with the paid versions it will be possible to automatically create periodic full synthetic backups. Two questions regarding this:
1. Does VAW Free still offer a possibility to specify a retention period for the restore points as we know it from version 1.5 Free?
2. I thought that the integration of the oldest incremental backup into the full backup is de facto a creation of a new synthetic full backup!? What is the difference to the newly announced feature in VAW Free?
1. Is it possible to install and run VAW Free on a Windows Server operating system, e.g. Server 2016?
2. Is it possible to install and run VAW Workstation on a Windows Server operating system, e.g. Server 2016?
3. The license seems to be a subscription in fact. If we buy e.g. a one year subscription: What happens after the year has passed in case we do not prolong the subscription: Can we still use the software without restrictions?
4. Is it possible to directly backup to a repo of Veeam Backup Free Edition for Hyper-V (running in free mode), using VAW workstation?
5. If answer to question 4. is yes: Is it possible to restore single items (or the whole machine in case of a backup of an entire computer) to a target machine from Veeam Backup Free Edition for Hyper-V (running in free mode)?
Bitlocker encrypted backup targets:
Consider that we run a backup (using VEB Free or VAW Free) of an entire computer to a volume on a USB or SATA hard disk that is encrypted using Bitlocker:
1. Is it possible to access the Bitlocker encrypted volume from within the booted VEB Free recovery media?
2. Is it possible to access the Bitlocker encrypted volume from within the booted VAW Free recovery media?
2. This is possible but you can also send the backup directly to a Veeam repository even with Veeam Backup Free.
Unable to obtain a Veeam Agent for Windows license from the backup server.
Veeam Backup and Replication version 18.104.22.1683 is not compatible with Veeam Agent for Windows
Failed to perform the operation.
The configuration file you are trying to import does not match the product edition.
You need update 2 for VBR 9.5 which will be available soon (currently in RTM status).
