 2021-04-21 12:41:16 -0500 answered a question Unable to backup VM on Hypwe-V 2019 Thanks for creating a support ticket with us regarding this error, and we appreciate that you resolved it on your own. Also, I'd like to share the root cause of this error in this post, so it will help other users who are facing a similar error when backing up their VMs. You configured backup for your Hyper-V VMs by enabling application-aware processing. Vembu requires the “Vembu Appware Tool” to be installed on your VMs to perform the application-aware processing. It seems the antivirus software installed on your VMs was blocking the installation of the “Vembu Appware Tool”, and that's the reason backups were failing in your environment. After uninstalling the antivirus software from your VMs, the backups are now running fine. 2021-04-21 11:59:15 -0500 answered a question When will Vembu BDR version 5 will be released The Vembu BDR Suite v5.0 is expected to be released by end of July 2021. As it is a major release from Vembu, the testing efforts are huge. So there is some uncertainty in giving an exact release date right now. If there is any change in the release timeline, we will update it in the same thread. We are also planning to provide a beta of v5.0 in May 2021 to the users who are interested in testing it in their environment.

Hello, I installed Vembu BDR on ubuntu Linux 18.4 LTS, I correctly registered it on my account, I have the enterprise version activated by the 30 days trial license. My only purpose was to testing it to backup hyper-v vms, unfortunately I can't add any hyper-v server (despite I have that option available for vmware thou). I can't select the tab "standalone Hyper-v" and there's only one message : Hyper-V backup is not supported in this operating system. Download and install the Vembu VMBackup Client Agent in your Hyper-V host machine to configure Hyper-V backups. What does it means? is there anything I can do to fix this? is Linux supported for this type of comfiguration? Could you give me some hints?

It is a notification to the user that the backup job didn't run at the scheduled time. Do not consider missed backup schedule notification as a major issue unless the backup job schedules are continuously getting missed for a long period. From what you have said, it seems the backups are running without any issues after you modify the backup schedule time. Generally, if you are getting more Missed Backup Schedule, please make sure; 1)The number of backup jobs you have scheduled to run at the same time does not exceed the backup thread count. If so, edit the backup job and change its schedule. 2)The 'Next schedule time' of the missed backup jobs are updated properly. If it is not updated or displays an older time, then we recommend you to 'edit' and save the backup job to update it. 3) The time zone of the Vembu BDR Backup Server matches the time zone of the machine where the Vembu BDR Backup server is installed. If not, go to Settings > Time Zone and properly update it.

You can confirm the retention policy of your backup jobs by viewing the backup configuration. Go to Backup > List Backup Jobs and click on the View icon corresponding to your backup job to review the retention configuration. If the retention is disabled, you can edit the backup job, enable the retention policy, and configure it. Vembu BDR Suite v3.9.1 supports only 99 daily merged recovery points in the basic retention while the Vembu BDR Suite v4.0 & above supports up to 999 daily merged recovery points. Please refer to the Software Upgrade Guide if you would like to upgrade to the latest version. If you have configured additional full backups, you can delete the older full backups and save space on your storage repository. Go to the Recovery page and click on the Reports icon corresponding to your backup job. In the report page, select Full Backups in the drop-down list found on the right corner of the page and delete the older full backups. Note: Deleting the full-backup will also delete its corresponding incremental. 2020-07-07 12:20:32 -0500 answered a question Linux VembuNetworkBackup CreateJavaVM :: Error To analyze this further, send the 'log' & 'Vembu_InstallLogs' folders of Vembu NetworkBackup clientas ZIP files to vembu-support@vembu.com.

Make sure the Vembu BDR Backup Server has internet connectivity to access portal.vembu.com to perform the license check. If you are using a network/web proxy for internet connection, then you need to provide the same details on the Vembu BDR Server proxy configuration page. To configure a proxy server on your Vembu BDR Server, navigate to Settings > Web Proxy and provide the proxy details and click on Save. You will also get the above error if your firewall may be configured in a way that the computers in your network will connect to the internet only through the web browser. As one of our EXE is connecting to the portal.vembu.com to perform the license check, make sure you have also provided enough access to the EXE's of Vembu to access portal.vembu.com. You can confirm it by using ping or TRACERT command from your command prompt or terminal. For example, open the command prompt and execute any one of the following commands Command 1: ping portal.vembu.com Command 2: tracert portal.vembu.com 2020-05-27 22:19:10 -0500 answered a question Vembu Backup Free Edition with retention disable never deletes old backups? From your vembu portal account, I noticed that you're backing up your Hyper-V VMs. When configuring the backup job, if you have selected full-featured free edition, the incremental and additional full backups will run as per the schedule. The retention will also work for both incremental and additional full backups as per the backup retention configuration. You can backup 10 VMs for free using the full-featured free edition. If you have configured backups for your Hyper-V VMs with limited feature free edition, there will be no incremental backups, and the entire machine is backed up during each backup schedule. However, the retention will work for the additional full backup configuration in the limited-feature free edition backups. Enable additional full backups and specify the maximum number of full backups you want to retain in the backup repository. The older full backup data will be automatically deleted from the backup repository once the additional full backup count exceeds the specified maximum full backup counts. 2020-05-12 05:06:40 -0500 edited question Backup & Replication support for VMware vSphere v7.0 is vsphere 7.0 supported?

It seems there was an issue when the Vembu BDR Backup Server was trying to retrieve the volume information of the machine to add new builds. If you have mapped any network drive (shared drive) to the Vembu BDR Backup server machine, make sure it is accessible. Also, make sure VembuBDR and VembuPostgreSQL services are running on your backup server machine after the upgrade. Q: Sometimes, when logging in, I have information about the Postgre service not working. It seems the random service is stopping and starting. Q: How to login, it shows version v4.1, but I have v4.0.1 in the system tray. We suspect the backup server is not upgraded to v4.1 properly. We recommend you to download the Vembu BDR Server setup and install it again on top of your existing installation. Q: GUI works very slowly. After logging out, logging in again works well for a while until I go to the new tab. When I want to choose a backup location, it goes on forever. Q: In addition, when I want to see the current state, I am constantly trying to download data. Make sure you have enough resources on the machine where you installed the Vembu BDR Backup Server. Refer to the system requirement for more details. Also, let us know the specification of the backup server machine and the number of backup jobs configured from your backup server for further analysis. 2020-04-21 02:30:21 -0500 answered a question Upgrade Vembu Integration Services Whenever a Vembu BDR Backup Server is updated, its Vembu Integration Service installed on different machines will also be automatically upgraded to the latest version. Once the backup server is updated successfully, the Vembu Integration Services will start to upgrade within a day. The upgrade time depends on the idleness of the Vembu BDR Backup Server and Vembu Integration Service installed on the target hosts. You can delete the older installers once all the Vembu Integration Services are successfully updated to the latest version. You can verify it by comparing the build number of Vembu BDR Backup Server and Vembu Integration Service. You can find the build number of your backup server by logging in to the backup server and clicking About Us from the Help menu('?') at the top right corner of the application screen. The build number of the Vembu Integration Service can be found from the SGBuildInfo.conf file. You can find the SGBuildInfo.conf file on the Vembu Integration Service installed machine at < installation location >\Vembu\VembuIntegrationService\conf For example: C:\Program Files\Vembu\VembuIntegrationService\conf\SGBuildinfo.conf 2020-03-25 12:10:20 -0500 answered a question Error occured while running VSSRequester.exe in guest machine.s set for the GuestOS on VM You will get the above message in the report when a backup job was completed with a warning.

When listing the VMs for the backup, there was a time out in getting the VM information for 2 of your VMs, and that is the reason why the backups were getting failed for that particular VMs with the error No valid license available. To resolve this, our support engineers have increased the time out value in getting the VM information and sent a fix EXE file to your registered email address. Follow the instructions given in the mail and replace the fix EXE file in the installation location of Vembu BDR Backup Server. The Error message "No valid license available" is inappropriate for this case, and it will be fixed in the next patch release. 2020-02-25 13:07:11 -0500 answered a question Vembu - Free Edition - CPU Count As you have converted your backup server to the free edition, licensing violations are not a reason for the backup failures. After analyzing the log files sent by you to our support, we have noticed that you configured the backup for your VMs through VMware vCenter Server v6.7 Update 3 with the ESXi's version being lower than the vCenter Server. We have already identified failures in backup for the VMs configured through VMware vCenter Server v6.7 Update 3 if the ESXi version is lower than its vCenter Server. The backups are failing with an error in downloading the VM configuration files, and it is specific only to the above scenario in a VMware environment. To resolve this issue, we recommend you upgrade the ESXi host to the latest version, or as a workaround, you can configure the backups for your VMs through the ESXi instead of vCenter Server. The above backup failure case will be addressed in the upcoming releases of Vembu. 2020-02-24 08:05:48 -0500 answered a question How to delete Storage Pool/Volumes Pool in Web?

Hi, I already make sure there's no backup job set as saving in certain Storage Pool, in this case, which is named as "BackupStorage" However, when I try to delete the Storage Pool, the delete button is grayed out. Since I could not delete the Storage Pool, I could not delete network volumes either. Is there any way to delete Storage Pool and Volumes in Web? Thanks. 2020-02-08 21:55:30 -0500 answered a question se pueden direccionar backups a otro storagepool ó solo a la que se defina como default? - Can backups be directed to another storagepool or only to the one defined as default? Question 1-There are two NAS which have already been added but my question is whether you can address the Backups to each of them at the same time, or only to the one defined as default. If you are configuring the backup using vembu backup clients (like File & Application backup client or Windows Image backup client), then the backup data will be stored in the storage pool that is set as Default. If there are multiple storage pools in your backup server, you can make only one of them as Default. If you configure the backup directly from the backup server, then you can specify one of the available storage pools to store backup data when creating a backup job. Different backup jobs can have different storage pools. Question 2- How would this Pool storage work with both volumes? What information would be stored in each of the volumes? If a storage pool comprises several volumes, the backup data will be stored in the first volume (/media/Share) in the order it was added. Once the first volume is filled, then the data will be stored in the other volumes successively (/media/Share2). As Vembu supports scale-out storage, you can edit the storage pool and add new volumes to the pool at any time if there is no storage space available in the existing volumes. 2020-01-06 09:33:26 -0500 answered a question BDR Free VMware Deduplication The data reduction with Vembu applies to individual backup jobs, not as a whole. It is specific to the particular backup chain (full backup and incremental). If a new full backup gets scheduled, the older backup chain will reset and starts a new backup chain. As per the design, a new folder gets created on the backup storage repository for every full backup, and the successive incremental will also get stored in the same folder. Since you are using Vembu BDR Suite free edition, only the full backup will run on the selected backup interval, and that's the reason you are seeing a new folder created every day on the backup storage repository. Vembu leverages variable-length inline deduplication. The data reduction rate depends on the size of the free RAM. Higher the size of free RAM, the higher the rate of data reduction. 2019-12-20 23:27:19 -0500 answered a question Restore job stuck at "Configuration Checked, Gathering files for restore" For the Live Recovery of VMware VMs, there is an issue in the restore when the VMDI file is not properly updated. We have already identified the root of this issue and made a patch ready. You can contact our support at vembu-support@vembu.com and get this patch applied to your backup server. However, this issue will be permanently fixed in the next update of the Vembu BDR Suite. 2019-12-01 01:15:41 -0500 answered a question BDR Free VMware Deduplication Only the original size of the data(source data), which has been backed up is displayed the UI of the Vembu BDR Server. However, the data gets stored on the backup storage repository after compression and deduplication. All your backup data will get stored in the sgstorage folder of the configured backup storage repository. If you go and check the properties of the sgstorage folder, you can find the actual space used by the backup data in the storage repository. If it is a physical volume, you can find the sgstorage folder immediately after opening the configured drive. If it is a network volume, you have to navigate to the configured storage path to find the sgstorage folder. 2019-11-18 11:57:34 -0500 answered a question Some questions about vembu (enterprise) evaluating switching You can find the answer to your questions inline below. 4) Where can I find those? Is there some documentation if you want to do some scripting on your own? The documentation will be sent to your registered email ID. 5) Is it possible to test/trial BDR360 too? Yes, you can test the Vembu BDR360 during the trial period. Refer to the Vembu BDR360 User Guide for more information. 6) So if I understand you correctly I only have to update the Offsite Server in my DC manually and all the servers at the customer locations as well as the agents are update automatically afterwards? Whenever a new version of Vembu BDR Server is released, you need to manually update the Vembu BDR Server and Vembu OffsiteDR server by performing the on-top installation. You can automatically update all the client agents directly from the Vembu BDR Backup Server by navigating to Settings > Updates > Add Builds and adding the latest client builds. 7) Okay, but it can be configured in a way that if the device is outside of the LAN it backups over WAN to the customer location, correct? In this case, we recommend you to use a VPN. When the laptops are inside the local network, the data will be sent over LAN. When the laptops are outside the LAN, the data will be sent over WAN 8) Is it possible to use S3 compatible storage (e.g. Wasabi) as (offsite) storage? As of now, you cannot directly use the S3 compatible storage for offsite. However, you can use the AWS S3 to store the backup data through the AWS storage gateway.

You can find the answer to your questions inline below. 1) Is GFS possible without forced full backups? So can I have e.g. 10 yearly backups which are all still incremental? Yes, the GFS retention is possible without forced full backups and you can have the incremental backups for 10 years and even more. 2) Is vembu using reverse incremental forever or incremental forever? If the latter how long does it take to recover the newest backup in a long chain? Vembu is using Advanced Reverse Incremental, with which all incremental restore points are virtually available as full backup without occupying any additional storage in your storage repository. You can almost instantly restore the backup data from any of the restore points using our recovery options such as Quick VM Recovery, File-level Recovery, and Disk Management Mount. 3) Is automated screenshot verification possible? Yes, Vembu will perform 3 tier verification for all the image-based backups such as Data Integrity Check, Mount Check, and Boot Check(The recent restore point will be booted, and the screenshot of the boot screen will be captured to confirm the recoverability). 4) Is a scripted/automated installation of the windows physical backup agents possible? Yes, we provide custom scripts to automate the installation of Vembu agents. 5) Is there a centralized and multi-tenant management and monitoring console available? Yes, using Vembu BDR360, you can monitor all the activities of BDR backup servers deployed anywhere from the centralized web console. 6) Is it possible to update the BDR suite as well as the agents automatically and/or through a centralized console? Yes, BDR backup servers and agents can be automatically upgraded to the latest version. Since you would like to host Vembu OffsiteDR in your data center, you need to manually upgrade the OffsiteDR server by performing the on-top installation. Then the BDR backup servers deployed in your customer location and the Vembu agents connected to that BDR backup servers can be automatically upgraded. 7) Is there a solution for laptops that aren't in the LAN very often? Is it possible to configure that the backups go directly to the offsite location if the BDR server isn't reachable? You can send the backup data from the client agent installed on the laptops to the backup server through WAN(internet) if the laptops will not be available over LAN all the time. As per the current design, the data will be first sent to the Vembu BDR server and then it will be sent to the Offsite DR server. The backup data cannot be directly sent to Offsite DR if the BDR server isn't reachable. 2019-11-13 00:26:10 -0500 answered a question Fail to add windows machine due to service running as a local account Thanks for the update. We will update that KB article shortly. 2019-11-12 11:04:59 -0500 answered a question Authentication failure while backing up to the server The file & application backups are free for workstation operating systems. If you want to backup a server operating system, then you need to purchase a separate license. From the error message and backup log, it seems you are getting a different error message for the actual error. We will check this internally and fix it in the upcoming releases of vembu. 2019-11-12 06:59:55 -0500 answered a question Authentication failure while backing up to the server To analyze this further, send the log folders of Vembu NetworkBackup client and Vembu BDR Serveras a ZIP file to vembu-support@vembu.com. Our support engineers will analyze the log files and get back to you with the solution. You can find the log folder of Vembu NetworkBackup client on the client machine at < installation Location >\Vembu\VembuNetworkBackup\log For example: C:\program files\vembu\VembuNetworkBackup\log  You can find the log folder of Vembu BDR Server on the backup server machine at < installation Location >\vembu\vembuBDR\log For example: C:\program files\vembu\vembuBDR\log
