4) Backup Repository: The default location selected on installation which stores backup files, copies of VM's and metadata.
4) Veeam Backup Service: The service which coordinates all jobs and controls hooks into the VM Infrastructure.
4) SQL DB: Stores Job configuration, performance metrics and statistics
4) Catalog Service: Enables indexing and searching of guest files.
File Level Restore from Windows Virtual Machines
File Level Restore from Linux Virtual Machines
Application Item Restore from SQL, Exchange and Active Directory
Application Item restore from any virtualized application
Used to take the workload off of the Veeam server
Resides between the data source and backup target
You can deploy up to two additional backup proxies
The default proxy server is installed on the primary Veeam server.
WRS-BUNRF1 :: Veeam B&R 6.5 :: E:\Backups
WRS-BUNRF2 :: Veeam B&R 6.5 :: E:\Veeam Backups
WRS-BUNRF2 :: Veeam B&R 6.1 :: E:\Veeam Backups
WRS-BUNRF2 :: Veeam B&R 6.5 :: E:\Backups
VPower provides virtual power to a VM so that it boots, without actually requiring any more power from the physical machine
VPower powers the technology where a group of machines that are dependent on eachother are booted together to provide services during a restore function.
VPower provides instant VM recovery by immediately restoring the VM back into the production environment.
VPower runs directly from a compressed/de-duplicated backup file using resources on the backup server/storage.
De-Duplication finds duplicate files within VM's and only backs-up one of them
De-duplication ensures that if two .vbk files are exactly the same then the oldest one is deleted
De-duplication analyzes file blocks and only backs up one, if more then one file block are the same and ignores empty file blocks.
VMWare Tools Heartbeat
Network Mode: Places an additional load on the LAN.
Direct SAN Mode: Data retrieved directly from SAN.
Virtual Appliance Mode: Used when Veeam server is virtual.
Direct WAN Mode: Data retrieved directly across a WAN.
Two backup proxies, one deployed in each location involved in the replica set.
Replica to VeeamZip to be taken offsite via CD/USB drive
Trick Question! Veeam doesn't support OFFSITE replication.
A backup proxy with dedicated network connections to the source and the replica destination.

CBT was not configured to be available on that specific VM.
CBT was not configured to be available on that specific LUN.
The backup server had not been given rights to the LUN where the VM is stored.
The LUN on the SAN had not been given rights to the file storage on the Veeam Backup server.
