Install Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE


[ezcol_1half_end]First of all, head over to and download the software. Its appx. 175MB. and you will need to register with an emailadress and password. Unzip the file and start setup.exe[/ezcol_1half_end]





[ezcol_1half_end]Accept the Agreement and click Install[/ezcol_1half_end]



[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]The installation starts and will install all necessary files. Grab a nice cup of coffee and wait a couple of minutes to let the installation finish.[/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]For most people, stick to the recommended settings and let Veeam autoconfigure it for you. As an IT-professional I always want to know what it is going on in the background so I prefer to skip the autosettings and configure it manually. I choose «Skip this, I will configure backup later». You should also do this if you want to backup to other media f.ex NAS etc.[/ezcol_1half_end]



[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]The wizard want you to create a recovery disc which you can use to restore your computer in a bare metal restore. I suggest that you do this. Or at least create an .iso file which you can use to create the disc later with the hardware drivers. [/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]The recovery wizard will scan for USB-devices you can use. In my case I am running this installation in a virtual machine so I have not connected an USB-device. Choose your appropriate target and click next to create the .ISO file. Keep the default settings if you not have a special reason NOT to.[/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Veeam will run in the background and you can change the backupsettings by access the icon in your systray. I prefer to set this icon always visible.[/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Since I skipped the autosetup with USB, I must create a job first. I always choose «Entire Computer (recommended)» I suggest you do the same thing if you not are 100% aware of what you are doing. The other options is well explained in the wizard.[/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]In the next window you can choose which media you want to store your backup media. I will in another post show to integrate the VEB-backup into a Veeam Backup & Replication repository from an administrator perspective. [/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Choose your local drive Usb, network etc. and set your preferred backup retention. Default is to keep backup for 14 days. The first backup will always be full then forever incremental no matter what repository you choose.[/ezcol_1half_end]


[/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end]Set the time when you want your backup to kick off. You can also trigger the backup at special events such as when your computer get locked or when you are logging off for the day or even when the USB-device is connected. Press Create and your are done![/ezcol_1half_end]

IIS services fail to start: «Windows could not start the Windows Process Activation Service – Error 6801: Transaction support within the specified resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error» when WAS service is started

After a restore from Veeam to a Storefront 2.0 server I could not get the W3svc to start.

You may see that IIS related services fail to start and receive «Windows could not start the Windows Process Activation Service – Error 6801: Transaction support within the specified resource manager is not started or was shut down due to an error» error message when you try to start the WAS (Windows Process Activation Service) service. This issue may occur if the file system transaction log is corrupted somehow. In this case run the following command in the command prompt:

Windows Server 2008

How to give administrator full access to all exchange mailboxes

There are times when you want, or have to, give the administrator full access to all the exchange mailboxes. This is f.ex the case when you want to restore an email in Veeam directly into the mailbox for the user. The default Exchange permission will just give the users access to their mailboxes.

You can give individual access to users by delegating the access in the Exchange ECP (2013), but to apply this to all mailboxes you can use the following powershell command

Get-MailboxDatabase -identity «[mailbox database name]» | Add-ADPermission -user [username] -AccessRights GenericAll
