Error using VeeamPN with backup copy job

Post by Line_Rider » Apr 20, 2018 11:40 pm

I've got VeeamPN setup and can create the VPN tunnel from my on prem veeam server successfully, I also successfully added the repository vm into my backups infrastructure.

When I start a backup job going to that repo I get the following error.

Error: Failed to connect to the port [10.0.0.5:2500].

We do have a firewall and the rule for the tunnel to established was allowed but do I also need another rule allowing port 2500 from azure to my on prem? I'm slightly confused as I expected the VPN tunnel to allow that once established.

Hi Jon,

I need a bit more details about your deployment to suggest you a solution.

As I understand you installed VeeamPN in HUB role in Azure virtual network where you are setting up a repository.
You added 'point-to-site' client and used a OpenVPN client to connect from on-prem Veeam Server to the VPN in Azure.
But then could you please explain how the job is setup? For example - if you are using an another server as a proxy, and this proxy is not connect to with its p2s VPN connection it will not see 1.0.0.5 IP address in Azure.

If this is the case I would suggest to use VeeamPN appliance - install it in your on-prem network, connect as site-to-site and use IP translation for Azure-based server (10.0.0.5) to some not used local network address (e.g. 192.168.1.200). Thus all servers (Veeam Backup Server and all proxies) in your network will see the Azure-based repository as local alias 192.168.1.200

Thank you,
Alexey

I'm trying to use Point-to-Site method to create a repository in Azure and create a backup copy job to that repository from the on-premises backup repository of few selected critical virtual machines in a production environment. Currently we are using 192.168.0.0 ip range in the production. Will it not work having a point-to-site method for the above mentioned task or do i have to go with a site-to-site method to make it successful (which is not preferred by customer)?

Hi Sahan,

Copy job requires VBR and local repository servers (and sometimes even third to have visibility to the Azure-based repository. Unless all these roles are on one and the same server I would recommend to deploy site-appliance for VeeamPN and use it in Site-to-Site scenario.

When S2S is up and running, you can use an IP Translation feature to bring Azure-based repository as local resource: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/veeam ... tml?ver=10

Thank you,
Alexey
