Veeam – What’s new? Agent Management in Update 3

Veeam recently released the update 3 for Veeam Backup & Replication. One of the biggest innovation is the integrated management of Veeam Agents for Windows and Linux. Veeam didn’t wait until the release of version 10 with this feature, but have brought it now.

With the integrated agent management you have the total control of your physical and cloud workloads. If you have some physical servers, like special database applications or a domain controller, or workloads in public or privat cloud environments, which are not running in your on-premises infrastructure, then Veeam Agent is the perfect solution for you.

You can backup your physical servers located in your own datacenter by using Veeam Agent. But not only limited to servers but also for workstations. Like the very important laptop from your boss, or other special computers with complex software configuration.

And you can also reach out to the cloud with Veeam Agents. Imagine you’ve got some web and database servers running in the cloud, but there is no backup available. With Veeam Agent you can backup also these workloads to your local repository, to be able to restore things to the cloud or your local infrastructure.

In this what’s new article i’ll show you how the agent management works, how you create protection groups and backup jobs.

Veeam – Backup Copy “Block is not initialized. Failed to download disk.”

Recently a customer reported an issue with a backup copy job. At this customer we implemented a new leased line with synchronous 1Gbit/s bandwidth from the main site to a secondary site. That gave us completely new possibilities regarding the backup of data and making it available. There is no need for a WAN Accelerator anymore, we can replicate VM’s with Veeam directly to the secondary site. And also backup copy jobs to this site go now A) directly and B) in a regular manner (what wasn’t possible before because of lack of bandwidth).

By the beginning of the last week, around the 30th of May, one backup copy job started to fail. This job contains all VM’s and should backup copy the data once a day to the secondary location. But one server, the main fileserver, failed with this error message:

Error: Block is not initialized. Failed to download disk. Reconnectable protocol device was closed. Failed to upload disk. Agent failed to process method {DataTransfer.SyncDisk}.

First i thought, ok, that can happen. No worries. After the second failure i did some checks and also opened a support case at Veeam support. If you don’t know how to collect log files for a Veeam support case, please have a look here.
