some functions about Veeam sure backup

Post by baber » Feb 14, 2019 5:47 am

Dear all
Hi

I was run veeam sure backup in my environment and it work perfectly but want to know what does that means quote from veeam help center :

" If the SureBackup job is configured to perform malware scan, Veeam Backup & Replication scans data of VMs from the application group and the verified VM with antivirus software."

1- Is that your means for example if i had backup from 10 vms i can malware scan or virus scan in surebackup ?
where can i config that ?
As I know we have 4 tests in surebackup : Heartbeat , ping , script and verification
which one will be use for malware or virrus scan ?

2- The last step of verification that check all of vms files such as vms,vmdk, flat.vmdk, ..... how it works for example for checking this had to have a source file for compare now want to know what is source file for checking ?

Hello Babak,
where can i config that ?
it's some new checkboxes in the settings

@2: you mean the "Validate entire virtual disk content (detects silent data corruption)"?
This check is reading the complete backup file. Within the file, there are checksums for the blocks. The software creates the checksums again an compares them to the stored values. If they do not match, then the file is corrupt.

Best regards,
Hannes

As i understood in the backup job it will be get CRC check from the vm and will be save this value during verification files in surebackup it will get a CRC checking from backup file and will compare between them is that correct ?

2- what is that means from malware scan ?
Is that your means it can scan backup file with an anti malware/virus scan ?

Hello,
the backup process creates CRC checksums for every block. Theses checksums are checked. See user guide
Is that your means it can scan backup file with an anti malware/virus scan ?
yes you can. Also see user guide

Best regards,
Hannes

Hello,
yes, you can do AV scans before restoring or during backup test. :-)

We call that "Secure Restore" (see "Antivirus XML Configuration File" section how to configure your AV vendor).

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi Babak, You are absolutely right in regard to being able to scan for malware threats inside your automated SureBackup verification job.

Have you tested the above xml?

There is also the ability to run the Secure Restore functionality during many of the Veeam restore processes, for testing purposed of this XML this might be quicker for you. For example an Instant VM Recovery to a virtualised environment, using a different restore vm name and opting not to turn this on would be a good way to test out your custom XML.

Please keep us updated on how things go.

Barber, also keep an eye on this as you may be using the same antivirus software with a similar requirement.

veeam-backup-replication-f2/secure-rest ... ml#p315961

I will keep an eye on the support case that is open.

Hello Babak,

Can you please clarify the exact name of the antivirus software you would like to integrate with? We've managed to get Kaspersky Security 10 for Windows Server working fine, so if that's the version of the software you've been using please use the example provided in this post. Cheers!
