Feature Request: Surebackup and Windows Agent Backups

Post by it-infs » Mar 03, 2017 4:16 pm

Hi,

It would be great if we could choose Windows Agent backups to be used within an Application Group and Surebackup Job.

We have been testing backing up a number of physcial windows servers and would be very usefull to be able to restore and test against these types of backups.

Is this something that is on the Veeam Backup & Replication / Windows Agent roadmap ?

Kind Regards,
Neil

That'd be a great and logical addition to the features supported. The challenge I'd foresee there is the target options availability for machines tested like this, but those can be worked out with enough time for dev geniuses.

This request is a bit premature, as at first we would need to support instant recovery of agent backups to VMware, which in turn requires P2V conversion logic with ESXi target. Today, we support this functionality with Hyper-V target only. Now, as soon as we have that, SureBackup should be almost "free" addition in terms of development effort hopefully.

This would be a great feature.
Have already been asked this by two customers within the last 2 months.

Thanks guys. We have this request in the list of potential improvements.

P.S. A friendly reminder: try not post +1 without sharing your use case (i.e. what server/application you would like to test with SureBackup when talking about agent backups). Personal example brings much more value to the table :wink:

It seems that it should be pretty easy then to include agent backups to surebackup with Hyper-V hosts?
As I only have Hyper-V in my environment, it would be great to push this feature if it's easy implemented for Hyper-V Hosts.
Also, as there is a free Hyper-V edition, people with VMware environments could use one of their servers with the free Hyper-V edition to use this feature? (There shouldn't be a problem with licenses on the Host dedicated to surebackup)

Ah yes use-cases:
I'd like to see this as our main DC's are Hardware machines and we will have a HW SQL Cluster and S4B on HW which would be nice to have in surebackup.
Also there are some other Hardware machines with different applications.

[MERGED] SureBackup with Windows Failover Cluster

Post by msartor » Apr 13, 2018 10:07 am

Hi all,
We have built a Windows 2016 Failover Cluster with SQL Server environment and we make a backup with Windows Veeam Agent (all works correctly also with Shared Volume)
Now we would like to prepare a SureBackup for this but can SureBackup works with the environment mentioned above?
We have serious doubts about the possibility to "handle" the Shared Volumes.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Hi Mirko,

At the moment a backup created by the Agent cannot be used in a Surebackup job, also it cannot handle the Shared Volumes.
I will merge your thread to the feature request in order to add one more vote. Thanks!

+1

We need to build a lab for a customer which consists of VMware and Agent backups.
They have a database solution which is virtualized and some clients at a remote site which are necessary for testing/surebackup.
