Warning: Site was moved to another url

Post by MCH_helferlein »

Hi Veeam Forum members.

Since the update to VBO v4 my Sharepoint job always brings up the same warnings:

... finished with warning: Site was moved to another url.

Yes.. it's true that those sites were moved to another url. And we are aware of that.
Until when this message get repeated?
Is it possible to get this message remove after showing it like 5 times or so?

Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,

We are aware of such issues and unfortunately cannot offer any solution or workaround for now. We're working on a hotfix and I'd suggest you open a support case to get it as soon as it's available.

Thanks!

Hi Daniel, if you update to 4a or 4b it should be resolved.

Update on this:
Update to VBO 365 4b does not come automatically through internal update option, since this update is not working on the same host as Veeam B&R 9.5. So far I did not get a solution on top of Veeam B&R 9.5.

Veeam O365 4b worked on a VBO 365 standalone installation and should also work on top of Veeam B&R 10.

Important note:
Fix itself does not prevent "Site was moved to another url." warning. Therefore you have to add the url as an axclusion in VBO 365. With VBO 365 4b this exclusion is then handeled correctly.

Daniel,

The response is misleading - the hotfix is available for both VBO 4a and 4b. Your engineer will contact you shortly with the update.

Thanks!

Hi,

as a workaround for this problem you can remove the redirect site. Look here
at this Microsoft document:
https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/sharep ... -redirects

1. Download and install Sharepoint Online administration shell
2. Open Powershell with elevated rights
3. Connect to your Sharepoint administration URL:

Connect-SPOService

4. Enter URL: https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com
5. Enter Credentials of a tenant administrator
6. Enter URL of the redirect site, that has to be removed:

Remove-SPOSite -Identity https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/OldWebsite

7. Check removed URL in your browser. Browser should show „http 404“
(Perhaps you have to delete your browser cache)
8. Test your backup job in VBO to verify, that no warning appears

This worked for me.

kind regards
Arno

P.S.: Sorry for my poor english :-)

how about this warning message. Is Veeam implementing something that this warning is not showed more than 2-3 Times without the manuall remove as described from NoMercy in the future?

Thanks :-)

I used a workaround of excluding the old site address from the backup job using Veeam VBO powershell. Seemed to work well.

The problem of adding a warning message for this specifically and let it be gone after X amount of times is not a good practice imho. It could mean you are missing out on potential issues that are not foreseen. @agrob The manual remove has nothing to do with our product, but obviously removes the redirect site. Unless you want to keep that redirection for a longer period?

Thanks for your feedback Mike. I talked to our Sharepoint/Teams colleague and they don't want to remove the redirect.... So maybe you could implement an option for the customer to remove this particular warning message? so customer can decide by itself...

Thanks

Understood. It won't be in v6 as that is feature locked, but I assume that the redirect is needed for "lazy" users (And I don't blame them ;-)) that have favorites. I will dive into a potential scenario on how to resolve it.

Thanks Mike. Well i think to keep the links "clean" would also be my preffered option but it seems not "to be possible".... So if there would be an option in the future, this would be nice :)

How did exactely did you add the old URL? I was able to add the url as exclusion, but when i check it in the veeam gui, the exlusion is shown as "site" and not as "team"

Sorry, i mixed things up.... :( the powershell command would be like this:

Connect-VBOServer -Server <SERVER>
#specifi Jobname and URL from Site you want to exlude from the Job
$jobname = "<BACKUP JOB NAME>"
$site = "<SITEURL_TO_EXLUDE>

$job = Get-VBOJob -Name $jobname
$organization = Get-VBOOrganization
$excludedsite = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $organization -URL $site
$excludeditems = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $excludedsite
Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $job -BackupItem $excludeditems

At the moment the job is running and i'll check if this workarround is working...

Hi, Yeah I have the below saved which looks to match up with what you were retrying.

$job = Get-VBOJob -Name "VBO-SPO-01"
$organization = Get-VBOOrganization -Name "LLP.onmicrosoft.com"
$site = https://llp.sharepoint.com/teams/SharePointSite
$excludedsite = Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $organization -URL $site
$excludeditems = New-VBOBackupItem -Site $excludedsite
Add-VBOExcludedBackupItem -Job $job -BackupItem $excludeditems

There was 'teams' specifically in the site URL and not 'Sites' for the one I was looking at.

Hello, and thanks for this information. I'm running the above mentioned PowerShell to exclude redirect sites from my backup job. My attempts to do [Get-VBOOrganizationSite -Organization $organization -URL $Site] results in [Get-VBOOrganizationSite : The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized] for all of the redirect sites in my tenant. I've confirmed it works for all other sites. It seems to be a permission issue, but I've not been able to determine what permissions are needed and for what account or Azure App. The organization is configured with Modern Authentication and Allow for using legacy protocols. With this, we're configured with an Azure App, using Application Secret to authenticate, as well as a service account with app password.

The Azure App has the following API permissions:
Microsoft Graph
Directory.Read.All
Group.Read.All
SharePointTenantSettings.ReadWrite.All
User.read
Office 365 Exchange Online
full_access_as_app
SharePoint
Sites.FullControl.All
Users.Read.All

The service account has Global Administrator and SharePoint Administrator roles assigned.



If SharePoint Site rename is now supported in v6, this can be ignored. But there was mention above that 6 is feature locked and it's not included. However the comment here post446796.html#p446796 suggests it is supported.

After upgrading to v6, the cmldet returns the [VBOOrganizationSite] object along with a warning as opposed to the error mentioned in my last post. This is now working for me.
