Enterprise Manager and Catalog Replication

Veeam Logoby sarbaron » Wed May 15, 2013 12:15 pm

Hello All,

We are in the process of installing a new instance of VBR for our production environment - we had a very small instance previously, and everything was on one box (Enterprise Manager, VBR, Proxy & Repository). The new install is splitting this all out.

The problem I have is that the new install of Enterprise Manager connects to the existing VBR server, picks all the details up from running jobs etc, but when you are select the "Files" tab and search for the VM name, it returns nothing. The previous Enterprise Manager install does...

After a little digging I have discovered that the catalog is not syncronising, giving me the following error:

TimeTypeInformation
15/05/2013 13:03:35SuccessStarting catalog replication job.
15/05/2013 13:03:36SuccessReplicating data from the server "backup03.xxx.xxx".
15/05/2013 13:03:37 Error Failed to replicate catalog data from the server "backup03.xxx.xxx".
15/05/2013 13:03:37ErrorExport sessions is disabled on federal catalog server.
15/05/2013 13:03:38SuccessCatalog replication job finished.


I have checked firewalls etc, and it appears to be nothing to do with that, any and all help would be most appreciated.

Cheers,
Adam

Adam, you need to uninstall Enterprise Manager from your existing Veeam B&R server first, it prevents other Enterprise Manager instances from getting information from the backup server.

Will do - I should have thought about that - I disabled the proxy, but never thought of un-installing...

It would be much appreciated if you could get back and update the thread on whether this helped for future readers. Thanks.

Even after un-installing the Enterprise Manager software from the original server it did not replicate. I did notice that on a fresh install of Enterprise Manager the Veeam Backup Catalog module, and this was still present on the VBR server - so I tried to un-install it. This module is also used by the VBR software, so the un-install failed!

As a test I stopped the catalog service, and ran a sync from the new Enterprise Manager server, and it just sat waiting, but did not fail - so I started the service again on the VBR server, and the sync worked!

In short: Un-install Enterprise manager, restart the service on the VBR server and job's done!

Adam, thanks a lot! Important add-on that I've missed in my post.

Good day.
Did anyone try to solve the problem without reinstalling Enterprise Manager?

Maybe I did not read the forum carefully. I solved the problem. The role of Enterprise Manager should be on only one server. I deleted this role on the source server and Enterprise Manager and Catalog Replication worked.
