[Feature Request] Backup proxy servers in Workgroup

Post by jnana.dash » Aug 07, 2018 8:42 am


We have just evaluated VBO ver-2.0. We are planning to deploy it on Azure, but the requirement of Active Directory for proxy servers is quite disturbing. Initially this issue was not known and after few researches, we came to know workgroup is not supported for proxy servers. Extending our on-prem Active directory to Azure just for few servers is a quite risky and tedious job. Our InfoSec team will never allow this. Also, maintaining another active directory on Azure just for Veeam puts us on the same difficult page, as managing AD is another overhead just to run Veeam backup. The pre-sales team suggested us to raise a request in this forum for our issues.

I hope other customers are also facing the same issue. Please make the proxy servers to work in workgroup environment.

This FR is already on our list but I cannot make any promises when it will hit the product. I am a bit surprised that it wasn't known though, as it is written clearly in the release notes and user guide

yes +1 for this FR
i'm not happy with the requirement to have an AD just for the proxies. For the same reasons mentioned above.
