Veeam work with Cisco UCS 8.x?

Post by fbranham »

We have a publisher/subscriber/Unity Connections on two ESXi servers and was wondering if anyone has experience in doing a backup/restore of these? Per Cisco, they only support their document backup...but would like to explore this option *if* it works - supported or not, as a fail-safe.

I have backed up UCS 8.x with Veeam in the lab and it works fine, but you have to be aware of what you are doing for restores. The biggest problem is that the subscribers and publishers become out-of-sync with regards to change ID. The Cisco DR tools take special precautions to resync the database correctly after a restore, but this won't happen when using an external tool.

That being said, assuming your careful, it's not a real big deal. In my environment we had only two servers, a public and a single subscriber. We backed up only the publisher, knowing that we could leverage instant restore to bring the publisher online, and then create a new subscriber with minimal effort.

Hi Tom, IHAC that would like to protect Cisco Unity with VBR 9.5. Any idea if subscribers and publishers may still become out-of-sync with respect to the change ID?
