Veeam really can't backup itself now, is it ?

Post by MB-NS »


We used to backup the Veeam server using itself, which I know isn't a supported configuration, but worked fine nonetheless.
Now we upgraded our environment to v5, Veeam refuses (even when asked nicely) to backup itself.
I figure it is a safety lock put in place to avoid the customer being unsupported, but in my environment where I can have only one Veeam server, I'm stuck.

Is there something we can do to bypass this new behavior ?
