Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
User Guide for VMware vSphere

Before You Begin

Before you configure a backup repository, check the following prerequisites.

Dell EMC Data Domain

  • Dell EMC Data Domain must meet software and/or hardware requirements. For more information, see System Requirements.
  • The DD Boost license must be installed on the Dell EMC Data Domain system, DD Boost must be enabled and configured.
  • The gateway server that you plan to use for work with Dell EMC Data Domain must be added to the backup infrastructure.

If the Dell EMC Data Domain storage system does not meet these requirements, you can add it as a CIFS (SMB) folder. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will not use the DD Boost technology to work with Dell EMC Data Domain. For more information, see Dell EMC Data Domain.

ExaGrid

  • ExaGrid must meet software and/or hardware requirements. For more information, see System Requirements.
  • To use ExaGrid as a backup repository, you must configure an ExaGrid share in a proper way in ExaGrid Manager. For more information, see the ExaGrid documentation.
  • When you add ExaGrid servers to the Veeam backup infrastructure, and you use the UPN format for an Active Directory account user name (for example, john.doe@domain.local), make sure you enter the user name in lowercase letters only.

HPE StoreOnce

  • HPE StoreOnce must meet software and/or hardware requirements. For more information, see System Requirements.
  • The HPE StoreOnce Catalyst license must be installed on the HPE StoreOnce system.
  • You must use a Catalyst store as a backup target.
  • The gateway server that you plan to use for work with HPE StoreOnce system must be added to the backup infrastructure.
  • The client account that you plan to use to connect to HPE StoreOnce must have access permissions on the Catalyst store where backup data will be kept.

If the HPE StoreOnce storage system does not meet these requirements, you can add it as a shared folder. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will perform target-side deduplication. For more information, see HPE StoreOnce.

Quantum DXi

  • Quantum DXi must meet software and/or hardware requirements. For more information, see System Requirements.
  • To use Quantum DXi as a backup repository, you must configure a Quantum DXi share in a proper way. For more information, see the Quantum DXi documentation.

Storage Appliances

  • Storage appliances that are used to store backup data in filer (CIFS/NFS) or block device mode (iSCSI/FC/SAS) are not supported if the backup data is offloaded to tapes and is no longer stored directly on the filer/block device (Hierarchical Storage Management with Tape tier).

To offload data to tapes, make sure that:

  • All of the backup data is stored on the appliance altogether (that is, all of the backup chains are stored on the appliance as a whole and not scattered across multiple devices) and only copies are stored on tapes.
  • These appliances emulate a tape system (VTL) as an access protocol for Veeam Backup & Replication.

Before You Begin Note:

Consider reading the Considerations and Limitations section that describes prerequisites for object storage.
