Continuing the posts about Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, today I want to show you how to add your Veeam servers in Enterprise Manager after installation and show some possible features with it.
So come on, after installing console access to Enterprise Manager by typing https://NOME_SERVIDOR_VEEAM:9443 and log in with your domain user and password. By default, users who are administrators of the server that has installed Enterprise Manager already have console access.
On access we go to "Configuration" to add our Veeam server.
On the setup screen, click "Backup Servers" and then "Add" to add the Veeam server to the Enterprise Manager console. Fill in with the FQDN of the Veeam server and admin user having access to that server.
When adding the server it will make the first collection of the job settings and etc for the Enteprise Manager database and bring all the information from Jobs. This collection, by default, is made of 15 in 15 minutes, but you can change it by clicking "Schedule" in the upper right corner.
By clicking on "Sessions" you can check the result of the last collection.
Returning to the "Dashboard" we will already have a summary of what happened in his Jobs in the last 24 hours.
Below we have a graph where you can see the top of the traffic and at what time it was split by Veeam servers (if you have several).
By clicking on "Jobs" you can see the results of our latest Jobs. You can also filter by server or by result for easy viewing.
By clicking on one of the Jobs and clicking the "Job" button you can perform some actions like editing, disabling, cloning and deleting.
By clicking "Edit" you can change some job settings directly by the Enteprise Manager. Not all options are available, but some basic functions like adding new VMs job and changing the schedule will be available. Remember that whenever we change something in a job by Enteprise Manager this change will be replicated to the server where the job was created, maintaining the integrity of the environment.
In "Machines" we can check the status of the VMs being protected by Jobs, how many restore points there are and where the backup repository is.
Finally in "Files" we can start a restore of files of a VM directly by Enterprise Manager. To do this, type the name of the VM in "Type in machine name" and click on the magnifying glass.
Choose a restore point and click "Mount Backup".
Navigate through your backup, choose the file or directory you would like to restore and click "Restore" so that it is restored in the original path or click "Download" to download the file to your machine.
After the restore completes click on "download" to download the file.
These are some basic functions that I wanted to demonstrate with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, in addition I showed you can still restore backup items from systems such as Exchange, SQL and Oracle. In addition, it is also possible to have access to Veeam Self Service File Restore for its users to request the restores of their files and go through an approval and execution workflow. In large environments where we have several requests to restore this can help a lot.
