Domain controllers has not been backed up in the last X days

Post by whittinj » Dec 04, 2012 3:02 pm

Hello everyone,

I am new to virtual machines and Veeam as well. I think I know the answer to this but I wanted confirmation. I am getting warnings from my best practices analyzer that my directory partition on my domain controllers has not been backed up in the last 8 days. My question is: Can I disregard this as I am backup up the entire VM through Veeam or should I be doing this as well?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Joseph, do you have application-aware processing enabled in Veeam job settings? Thanks!

Application-aware processing Veeam’s proprietary technology responsible for creating a transactionally consistent backup of a VM running VSS-aware applications (such as Active Directory, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint, etc) without shutting them down. It also ensures successful VM recovery, as well as proper recovery of all applications installed on the VM without any data loss.

Particularly, it also notifies applications about them being backed up - which is what you seem to be missing right now.

Based on all above mentioned points, it’s totally worth enabling such option in order to avoid unnecessary issues.

Please take a look at the sticky FAQ topic regarding application-aware image processing, as well at this adjacent topic > Application-aware processing. Really necessary?

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

As an update: I set application-aware processing and my warnings went away. Thanks for your help.
