Known issues with other vendor solutions

Veeam Logoby costasppc » Mon Jan 02, 2017 2:41 pm

Hello,

Does the free (or the paid) edition has issues with other backup solutions, like native Windows Server Backup and Altaro HyperV backup (other than not having overlapping jobs).

Best regards

Kostas,

Nope. However, third-party VSS providers can cause conflicts during backup operations.

Over the last 6 years I ran only into 2 scenarios that leaded to problems:
1) Some older versions of legacy backup vendor software (BEX) added some special stuff into VSS framework and our InGuest processing (and VMware Tools quiescense) was not able to use VSS without errors. I never came across this problem in the last 2 years anymore.
2) When you run another Tape backup software on the same system were our Tape Server roles is installed, the other software was not able to use the tape drives anymore as we "consume" all tape drives that windows see. => Use another server for Veeam as Tape Server.
