Storage Infrastr. for NAS

Veeam Logoby Summer2016 » Tue Jun 27, 2017 11:48 am

Hi. I am a little bit confused, as I do not know, which storage infrastructure I need to choose, when I want to do a simply backup to disk, or my nas.Initially, when I add Storage, I habe Cisco, dell, hpe etc., but how can I simple add an network share, or local disc folder? Sorry, for that stupid question....

If you want to add it as target for backups, you need to go the backup infrastructure tab (instead of storage infra), choose repository and add a new repository :
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/hyp ... aunch.html (same for vSphere customers btw)

If you mean as a source for backup (you want to backup files that are stored on cifs/smb/nfs), this is currently not supported but has been announced for v10

Correct, in free version you cannot add backup repository. What you can do instead is to select VM to backup, right-click on it, chose "VeeamZIP" option and specify your share as a destination.

Ok thx... I licensed now. I could add a NAS as storage, it shows me free disc space. I create 2 backup jobs, one with my esxi host and one with my hyperv host. When I run, I got error on esx :

Code: Select all
"Current license or ESXi version prohibits execution of the requested operation" Is 6.0 esxi vsphere not able to do this?

Are you using free ESXi? Don't think that's supported (was it ever?)

Yes. But it is licenced now (thought it could run in free mode for some days). But still an error :-(

Code: Select all

Hmm, looks like VSS provider issues, maybe volume too large? Anyway, if I were you I would certainly contact support by now!

Seems like a problem with SQL VSS Writer, so I'd recommend reaching our support team. Also, check this thread; might be useful. Thanks.

Thank for support. I got it. Add/remove programs and repair "Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Express LocalDB" did help :-)
This must have been something with my Azure AD Connect I recently installed for my O365... Thx !

So only my HyperV issue is not working. But I have not detailed error message :-(

Thank you for help...

Are all required ports open in accordance with this table? Are you using application aware image processing functionality? If so, can you check whether VeeamVSS service (cannot recall the exact name) isn't stuck on target machine?

Anyway, kindly, reach our support team for further investigation, since logs review is needed.

Thanks.
