One of my customers replaced the old Veeam environment with new gear. The HW was pretty simple designed: two HPE ProLiant per server two HPE D3610 enclosures with 6 TB disks ~ 5km between backup server and backup copy destination One server was designed to act as the Veeam backup server and repository, and the second server was designed to act as the backup copy destination. Both servers were running Windows Server 2019 Standard.

When it comes to disaster recovery (DR), dedicated offsite infrastructure is a must. If you follow the 3-2-1 backup rule, then you should have at least three copies of your data, on two different media, and one copy should be offsite. But an offsite copy of your data can be expensive… You have to setup storage and networking in a suitable colocation. And even if you have an offsite copy of your data, you must be able to recover the data.
It is pretty common that vendors offer their products in special editions for SMB customers.

Affordable backup for SMB customers Most SMB virtualization deployments consists of two or three hosts, which makes 4 or 6 used CPU sockets.
I got this error in a new deployment of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4. The error occured every day at 9 pm. 24.02.2019 21:00:11 :: Error: Remote deployment and management is available for licensed agents only. Please change your backup server settings to allow managed agents to consume the license, then perform a protection group rescan. The solution to this issue is pretty simple. Make sure that you allow the consumption of licenses for free agents.

To backup a virtual machine, Veeam Backup & Replication needs two permissions: permission to access and backup the VM, as well as the permission to do specific tasks inside the VM to guarantee a consistent backup. The former persmission is granted by the user account that is used to access the VMware vCenter server (sorry for the VMW focust at this point). Usually, this account has the Administrator role granted at the vCenter Server level.
One of my customers bought a very nice new backup solution, which consists of a HPE StoreOnce 5100 with ~ 144 TB usable capacity, and a new HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 with Windows Server 2016 as new backup server. StoreOnce and backup server will be connected with 8 Gb Fibre-Channel and 10 GbE to the existing network and SAN. Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U3a is already in use, as well as VMware vSphere 6.
