Error: Processing “VM” Error: The RPC service is unavailable RPC function call failed….

Last week I saw the following CopyJob error (problem startet after installing U1 for V9): After some researching and try’s to fix this issue ( https://www.veeam.com/kb2065 did not work) I found a solution that worked for me: Check AV exclusions: https://www.veeam.com/kb1999 I clicked through (next, next, finish) all the wizards for proxy, repository, WAN accelerator (all Veeam components) and restarted the job. Maybe this helps someone else.

Parallel Processing and GFS Mediapool

Today I was implementing a tape library with 2 drives. After the library was set up and ready to use I created a GFS Mediapool and a new backup job. In the logs I recognized, that only one drive was used instead of both.

Veeam Copy-Job und die 30MB Files

Kürzlich haben wir in einer Umgebung einige Veeam Backup-Files aufgefunden, welche nur 30MB gross waren. Veeam erstellt bei jedem Copy-Job ein Backup-File, welches standardmässig 30MB gross ist. Wenn keine Änderungsdaten übermittelt werden müssen (z.B. VM ist ausgeschaltet), kann dieses File leer bleiben. In unserem Falle hatten wir aber Änderungen, welche übertragen werden sollten. Um ein solches verhalten nicht nur anhand des Copy-Job Status zu überwachen, habe ich habe ich in ein einfaches Script (PowerShell) in der neuen Script Section publiziert, welches dabei hilft, solche Files zu finden.
