[MERGED] Feature request - NetApp Backup

Post by tom.schmidt » Nov 28, 2017 7:33 am

Hi,

we are looking for a replacement of our ArcServe Backup.
As longtime users of Veeam and the availibility of the new agents, the only thing missing is the ability to backup the shares on our the NetApp filers.
It would be great for DR to be able to do a volume backup, not only a file backup.
I don't want to pay for two backup solutions....

Greetings

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

First: Welcome to the forums!

Second: Today we cannot do this yet. But, at VeeamON we did announce this functionality coming to our solution. (https://go.veeam.com/v10)
Note that some of that functionality came out with update 3 of VBR 9.5 (central agent management, universal storage API). Unfortunately I cannot give you any timeline on this functionality when it will make the solution as we prefer to make sure it works good. But it is coming...

Brgds,
Mike

[MERGED] Backup copy files on a network map

Post by sirjeje » Feb 14, 2018 9:40 am

Hello,

We are currently trying to do the following
Backup all files present on a CIFS network share.

We think that we may be able to do it via Backup copy files on a map network drive. We mount the cifs share on a specific user on a specific letter.
For the moment, the letter map is not seen on the GUI on the section: File / Microsoft Windows / Host (manager) / Drive letter


Could you please confirm this is possible? And if it's the case, could you please indicate the pre requisites?

Thanks in advance.

This is currently possible with the help of the file copy jobs. Please see more considerations above.

[MERGED] How to backup NetApp shares using VEEAM 9.5 or wait

Post by BackupUser » Feb 16, 2018 9:02 am

Hi there,

We’re using HPE Data Protector to backup our CIFS/NSF-Shares from NetApp Nearstore.

Do we have to wait for Version 10 or are there any tricks to create this kind of backups backups using VAS 9.5?

Best wishes

Currently this is possible via file copy jobs only. Complete solution for NAS backup is coming.

Thanks for your information.
Is there are small roadmap when we could start CIFS/NFS-Share-Backup using VEEAM?
Maybe this sommer?

@Foggy, it was announced over a year ago and still it's not possible/expected? We've invested a lot to transition to Veeam in order to be able to use CIFS backup. We knew it wasn't available immediately, but over a year??

Same for us, filecopy just doesn't cut it as you can only connect to servers and not a NAS device with a CIFS share for example

Very eagerly waiting for ability to backup CIFS as well, specially directly to tape. We have 70+ sockets licensed on a global deployment and this is one of the main shortfalls of Veeam and one that could cause us to stop investing in Veeam. We have been keeping an eye on this feature for a while as well.
