Veeam Availability Orchestrator v2.0 – VMCE feedback!

Every day, we learn a company has experienced a serious disaster in the operation of the IT infrastructure, which has led to serious financial loss and reputational impact. System failure is the first thing that comes to mind when possible risks are calculated for the operation of IT services and the organization as a whole. However, more often than not there are other reasons: the human factor, equipment disruptions, power cuts, malware, data corruption. All this can lead to a complete shutdown of systems and applications. The successful emergency switchover to a backup site (planned or urgent) will be poor if you don’t take care to the process, the switching plan / Recovery Plan, and if you don’t update it in a timely manner and don’t test it at the right time. Incorrectly specified dependencies of Machines and Applications, undocumented changes, incorrect processes, unverified applications and services, the incorrect sequence of Virtual Machines started from Replicas are just some of the problems that can prevent successfully switching both one application and the whole data center. For this reason, Veeam recently released new Veeam Availability Orchestrator version (v2) to automate the management of VM replicas when switching to a backup site. At VeeamON 2019 in Miami, I was lucky to attend at VMCE Orchestration (BETA class) training powered by Rasmus himself…

Under certain constrained circumstances, disabling User Account Control (UAC) on Windows Server can be an acceptable and recommended practice (example: consistent backup). These circumstances occur only when all the following conditions are true: Only administrators are allowed to log on to the Windows-based server interactively at the console or by using Remote Desktop Services and administrators log on to the Windows-based server only to perform legitimate system administrative functions on the server.
