how to "properly" move VeeamZIP backups

Post by nd39475 » Jul 21, 2017 11:17 pm

B&R 9.5.0.1038 ; We have ~30 VeeamZips to move from a full repo to a newly provisioned repo just for VeeamZips.
I have cut/pasted a few to the new destination, but rescan repository does not make them show in B&R. The only way I can see get them into the database is to "import backup", however #1: I have to do them one-at-a-time, #2: More importantly, they do not show a repository name after imported, #3: they are named with _imported appended to the name.

What is a more proper way to move the VeaamZIPs to the new repository?
(i'd be willing to use powershell if applicable also)

thank you

I've powershell'ed to import them all.
The caveat still being #2 & #3.

I don't think there's another way of moving them. However, you should be able to see the repository name in the imported backups view.

Not as expected, but i won't lose sleep over it.

Just in case anyone needs to do something similar, here is my powershell to import all the moved vbk's:

Code: Select all

. "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Console\Initialize-VeeamToolkit.ps1"

$VeeamServerName = "MyVeeamRepoName"
$VeeamServerObj = (Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name $VeeamServerName)
$RepoPath = (Get-VBRBackupRepository -Name $VeeamServerName).FriendlyPath

$files = Invoke-Command -ComputerName $VeeamServerName -ScriptBlock {dir "$Using:RepoPath\*.vbk"}
foreach ($file in $files) {
    Write-Host "Importing $VeeamServerName $File.FullName"
    Import-VBRBackup -Server $VeeamServerObj -FileName $file.FullName
}
