Friday Shorts – Moving Veeam Backups, More Veeam, and Props to Angelo!!!

Migrating Veeam Backups between drives

I recently ran into a situation where I needed to migrate a set of Veeam Backups from one local drive to another.  Now I had quite a few restore points and did not want to lose these so I was weary about just tackling this without looking on the Veeam forums or Google for people that have done this before.  I ended up following this blog post step by step and had no issues whatsoever. I certainly would recommend this way of doing it if you ever run into a situation where you need to do so.

More about Veeam

Yup, version 6.5 of the their flagship Veeam Backup and Replication has now went GA.  You can go on over to their website and start using it today.  For those early adopters, this means that you can now safely upgrade to vSphere 5.1 and be fully supported from Veeams’ end of things.  I’m not going to rhyme off all of the new features as I’ve already done that in a post here.  I will say however that some Exchange Explorer looks very very cool and is worth checking out!.

Shout out to Angelo

And just a personal shout out to Angelo Luciani – over the past few weeks this guy has helped me out and hooked me up with information I needed on multiple occasions and I just wanted to thank him for that!.  For those that don’t know, Angelo is the Toronto VMUG leader, a vExpert and just a fabulous guy.  Follow him on Twitter and you will never miss any virtualization news related stories…EVER!  And don’t forget, Toronto VMUG is Tuesday, November 6!  Be there!!
