Availability for the Always-On Enterprise

5 (missing) features

Veeam Logoby sabofx » Wed Dec 06, 2017 1:06 pm

Feature requests (in no particular order)

1) specifying order in which VMs are restored within a single job
Currently when restoring multiple VMs within a single job, the restore order is determined alphabetically (sorted by VMname).
In a DR situation it is critical that certain VMs are restored first (like domain controllers) prior to other VMs.

2) Ability to specify restoring VMs to a different network from
Code: Select all
Start-VBRRestoreVM
powershell command.

This feature is currently only available in the GUI :cry:

3) Powershell code hints at the end of each wizard in the GUI mode (to help admins to automate tasks)
Similar to the way this has been implemented in exchange management console. More info:
https://books.google.nl/books?id=Zk-0E8 ... ll&f=false

4) Option to switch to image level backup mode when application aware backup fails
When backing up a fail-over SQL 2016 standard cluster, application aware backups can only be made from the primary node. I know this is a limitation imposed by Micro$oft. But it would in some cases be useful to have the option to switch to image level backup mode for secondary database cluster nodes.

5) When restoring a VM, I need the option to over-ride the default max number of simultaneous connections to the repository.
Currently a single value configured on the repository determines the max number of simultaneous connections to the repository for both backup and restores.
I would at least appreciate the option to specify the max number of simultaneous connections to the repository for backups and restores separately

If anybody has encountered the same problems please write you comments here to make these features a priority for Veeam. Also work-arounds are more than welcome.

@veeam support: Can you comment on each request if you think it might be implemented? :roll:

Hi, thanks for your feedback, but next time please create a separate topic for each request, otherwise the discussion becomes a mess.

Regarding p.4, are you talking about Basic Always-On, since Veeam B&R doesn't support backup of SQL failover clusters?

I'd generally agree with 4. Is AAP/VSS is having a bad day, you could eventually just do a crash-consistent backup (VM snapshot without any integrations), it's better than nothing.

No 5, just a simple tickbox in the restore process allowing it to ignore repo/proxy limits may be enough. I've had that same issue myself

If you set AAIP to ignore failures, the job will fail over to crash-consistent backup.

@foggy: I'll create separate topics, as recommended.
