error / alarm for scanning only vbrs

Post by bkain1 »

Hello, we have some VBRs that only catalog netapp snapshots, they do not have their own jobs defined on the VBR. We had an issue with our proxy accounts being disabled but what, in Veeam One, would tell me that the vbrs cannot connect to their underlying netapp hardware so I'm alerted, if this ever happens again?

thank you

Hello,
proxy passwords (connection between VBR and proxy) are different to to do with Netapp passwords. So I'm not sure what your question is about.

If the password for a backup proxy changed, then the proxy becomes inaccessible and you get the backup proxy connection failure alarm after 5min https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/one/a ... =110#proxy

Best regards,
Hannes

No, not quite. they are cataloging netapp snap shots. I don't see what that has to do with the data mover proxy. If v1 can't catalog the snapshots because the proxy account for connecting to the netapp is disabled, what alarm would that be?

Hi Becki,

VONE does nothing directly with NetApp or any other backup storage. All VBR-related information is pulled from VBR server, so if VBR "sees" an issue with a proxy server, it passes this data to VONE, VONE captures it, and raises an alarm.

Thanks
