Veeam Backup + VCC + WAN accelerator

Veeam Logoby cedrad33 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 9:36 am

Good Morning,

I encountered one issue, and it seems that the function doesn't exists according to the support when i called them, and they suggest me to open one topic in Veeam's Blog, so here am I.

Tools I have are :
- Veeam Backup & Replication (License Evaluation : 30 days - Enterprise Plus)
- Veeam Agent for Windows (Currently in Beta)
- An Vcc account to a service provider (to send a backup copy)

The project I have is :

1) I have one physical in Windows 2012 R2. I installed the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to Backup the entire server.
The backup is going into a Veeam Backup Repository.
For the moment everything works very fine :D

2) Now i want to create a Backup Copy in Veeam Backup & Replication, from the previous job and send this copy using the VCC account the service provider gave me, and WAN Accelerator. According to the software, it is impossible to configure WAN Accelerator.

Note :
The Veeam Backup is NOT linked to a VMware or HyperV Environnement.
It has been installed only to make a Backup Copy which is send to a cloud storage. But i absolutely need to use WAN Accelerator, and i can't...

Could you please help me ?

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by impossible? Do you have WAN accelerators configured on both sides (target WAN accelerator is configured on the SP side)?

Hello foggy, thanks for your reply.

I mean that i can't configure WAN Accelerator in Veeam Backup & Replication.
The option is not visible.

I think I have this issue because Veeam is waiting to be linked with an VMware or HyperV Infrastructure.
But i don't have one, i just want to send the backup through VCC with WAN Accelerator

Perhaps i'm wrong .. My Veeam Backup & Replication is the last one (9.5) with a License Enterprise Plus...

Do you mean the option to enable WAN acceleration in the backup copy job or the option to add WAN accelerator?

Which one of the two I mentioned? A screenshot would help.

Ok, thanks for the picture, it's clear now. Indeed, the reason is that you have no vSphere/Hyper-V hosts added. To workaround, you either have to temporarily add a host or use PowerShell to add WAN accelerators. Btw, this is addressed in the upcoming v9.5 Update 2, where you will be able to add WAN accelerator without virtual hosts.

Thanks a lot for your answer, it was very useful :)
I thought it was the cause...

My Last question, do you know approximatively when the Update 2 will be release ?

And speaking about PS approach, one of the following scripts should answer your requirements:

Code: Select all
#Installing WAN Accelerator on local machine
Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
Get-VBRLocalhost | Add-VBRWANAccelerator -Description "Description" -CachePath "Path to some folder" -CacheSize 100 -CacheSizeUnit GB


Code: Select all
#Installing WAN Accelerator on different machine
Asnp VeeamPSSnapin
$Server = Get-VBRServer -name "Name of some machine"
Add-VBRWANAccelerator -Server $Server -Description "Description" -CachePath "Path to some folder" -CacheSize 150 -CacheSizeUnit GB
