VEEAM AGENT FOR WINDOWS – REMOTE COPYING DATA – 1

In the last weeks, I’ve been requested to understand how to set up a strategy of remoting Backup Data when the source is a Veeam Agent.

The answer is not just “Use the backup copy job” option because it can be used in one of three scenarios I’m going to cover in the next three articles.

So, let’s move fast forward

My Lab Environment is composed of VBR + 2 Windows 10 Physical Laptops

I do not cover the first part regarding how to create a protection group. There is more than one online guide that explains how to add a protection group to VBR.

My two suggestions are:

  1. Check if the Firewall ports are correctly open (click here)
  2. Check on Laptop if Admin share (c$) is available.

If the second point failed just follow this simple procedure. Launch a cmd as administrator and write the following command:

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Scenario 1: VBR as central Manager – VAW configurated as Server

Let’s see how to configure a primary VAW  backup Job

From the wizard select Windows Computer as shown in picture 1

from the Job Mode Select Server (Picture 2)

Now add the Backup Job name and follow the simple wizard (Pictures 3 to 9)

Now you can check if the backup up has been completed correctly (Picture 10)

Now it’s time to configure a Backup Copy job and run it (Pictures 11 to 16)

Now you can see different restore points on disks (Pictures 17 to 19)

The last step is watching how many licenses have been used

In the next article, we are going to see what will change if we work on the “select mode” option.
