[NEW BUILD] Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE RC

Veeam Logoby Gostev » Fri Mar 06, 2015 5:01 pm 3 people like this post

Thank you very much for your time testing Veeam Endpoint Backup BETA. Your involvement has helped us to improve the original code dramatically!

I am happy to present you the first Release Candidate build of Veeam Endpoint Backup, as well as the pre-release version of Patch #2 for Veeam Backup & Replication v8 which enables the long-awaited integration between VEB and VBR. These are not final builds (we still have a few more weeks to go), but we are making them available now to make sure all the new functionality gets additional field testing before GA. You will find that compared to the beta, we have added a significant amount of new features based on your feedback – so hopefully this will make the testing more fun!

New features

New Veeam Endpoint Backup features include:
• Backup directly into Veeam backup repositories.
• Full support for Bitlocker drive encryption on backup and restore.
• Ability to control power state of the computer after daily backup.
• "When backup target is connected" event (former "On storage attach" event) now supports both USB drives and remote storage, and triggers when you connect to a network from which your remote backup target is reachable.
• Metered internet connections are now detected and not used to perform backup to remote targets.
• More smart way of handling retries (both in scheduler and UI).
• Customizable backup destination folder.
• Support for rotated USB drives.
• Backup is automatically prevented from starting when a device is running off battery and battery level is less than 20%.
• Slightly improved backup performance (local data movers "talk" over shared memory, as opposed to network sockets).
• Recovery Media enhancement (virtual keyboard w/multi-language layout support, USB 3.0 devices support).
• New shiny setup!

New B&R features around integration include:
• Restore guest files and application items from endpoint backups.
• Export physical disks contents from backup into VMDK/VHD/VHDX virtual disk files.
• Basic monitoring and management of all incoming backups, including email notifications to B&R admins about endpoint backup status.
• Ability to assign end users permissions on individual backup repositories (permission settings dialog becomes available upon the first connection attempt from Veeam Endpoint Backup to a B&R server, before that it can be accessed by Ctrl-right-clicking the backup repository).
• Traffic throttling settings from Global Network Traffic Rules now apply to Veeam Endpoint Backup jobs as well.
• Support for endpoint backups in Backup Copy and Backup to Tape jobs.
• Ability to encrypt endpoint backup stored in Veeam backup repositorites.

Important notes

• Because of significant changes in both configuration and backup formats, we cannot provide backward compatibility for backups, or an in-place upgrade from BETA code. Please, remove Veeam Endpoint Backup BETA using Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs first before installing this RC build.

• For the same reasons, we may not be able to provide the upgrade to RTM build, and/or ability to restore from RC backups in RTM build. So please, do not assume that such compatibility will be available.

• The provided pre-release version of Patch #2 can only update Veeam Backup & Replication servers installed less than 24 hours ago. We have put this restriction in place to prevent accidental updates of production servers with the pre-release code. Please install a separate Veeam Backup & Replication server if you want to test the integration.

Known issues

• Waking up a computer for a daily backup broke just before the RC build (we will fix this by RTM).

What do you mean "Support for rotated USB drives."?
How can I enable it?

You can register multiple USB drives under Known Removable Media and just rotate them as needed, taking some of them offsite etc.

I can't find anything labeled "Known Removable Media"

Do you mean "Settings"->"Manage registered backup storage devices"?

If yes, there is only an empty list and not UI element to add or change anything... is this already supposed to be working?

Hello Thomas,
The USB rotation is activated if you specify the USB target as a destination in the backup configuration wizard (You need to go to Configure Backup > Local storage > Destination and choose the USB device). Once done you can register new USB devices as a part of rotation schema in the Known Removable Media manually or by clicking Backup now with having another USB drive attached.

Hi Is there a way to bypass the Patch error?

The provided pre-release version of Patch #2 can only update Veeam Backup & Replication servers installed less than 24 hours ago. We have put this restriction in place to prevent accidental updates of production servers with the pre-release code. Please install a separate Veeam Backup & Replication server if you want to test the integration.

I've setup a test server last week that I want to use :(....

How about changing the current date/time of the machine back to last week? :D

Good suggestion Tommy why didn’t I think of this in the first place :). The setup is running now. For those who don’t know the exact installation date you can see it at the creation date of the directory "C:\Program Files\Veeam"

When you say "Backup directly into Veeam backup repositories." can you use a Veeam Cloud connect repository directly? or do I need to connect to the Veeam server that has it connected first?

Hate the 24 hour thing as I want to install it on a PROD server to test. Any way around this? Tried setting the date thing but that don't work.

Not possible, this patch is in RC state and therefore this is specifically added to prevent people from breaking things in production.

You will have to connect to the Veeam server locally first as explained in veeam-endpoint-backup-f33/ga-cloud-connect-t26676.html
