  1. I've just uploaded almost 20GB of very important data on OneDrive. Documents, xlsx, pdfs mostly... Now I wonder about OneDrive's security and reliability. What is your point of view? Should I keep one more copy in other place?

  4. Hi Nakivo Is it possible to add MFA option for the Webinterface. I have some customers, where MFA is required for the backup. Thanks Mario

  7. Hello, @Tayler Odling, of course if your data is important for you, keep it in multiple places, I recommend to have at least three copies of it, save it to two different types of media and at least one copy offsite. About Microsoft OneDrive, my point of view it is as safe as any other storage, but you should not rely only on one spot, though it provides encryption. Please, find great tips on OneDrive data safety and a list of the common mistakes that can influence your cloud security here: https://www.nakivo.com/blog/microsoft-onedrive-security/ Let me know if you need any additional assistance from me. I look forward to hearing from you, Tayler.

  8. When I created this thread, I thought we would be mostly speaking about network load and its critical impact on backups. (Update: Yes, I have found this information if one of the references by @Official Moderator) Reducing the network load is the first I would do in a situation when you want to increase backup server performance.

  9. Hello, @Hakim, I think you should find out more information about NAKIVO Backup for Ransomware Protection: https://www.nakivo.com/ransomware-protection/ Anti-ransomware software alone is not sufficient to protect your organization's data. Also I recommend reading best practices for ransomware protection and recovery: https://www.nakivo.com/ransomware-protection/white-paper/best-practices-for-ransomware-protection-and-recovery/ Sorry for the offtop, I just wanted to support your remark

  10. Hello, guys two remarks from me - on one hand, anti-virus solutions can slow down saving and reading data from a disk, but on the other hand, ransomware issues can cause performance degradation. So you should always keep the balance

  11. Hello, @tommy.cash, thank you for your post. Here is the list of the possible questions you should ask yourself before creating the Backup Policy of your University: 1) Frequency of system/application backups. 2) Frequency of network file backups. 3) Frequency of email backups. 4) Frequency of desktop backups. 5) Storage. 6) Recovery Testing. About Microsoft 365 Backup Policies - there are inbuilt configuration options in your account which can help to prevent data loss. Due to Microsoft's Shared Responsibility Model, it is necessary also to have a backup of your Microsoft 365 data, using a third-party solution as NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Please, check a useful how-to guide on setting up Microsoft 365 backup policies: https://www.nakivo.com/blog/setting-up-microsoft-office-365-backup-policies/

  12. @Bedders, Please try replacing "q" with "-q": zip -q -d log4j-core*.jar org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class Let me know if it works for you!

  13. Hi, @JurajZ and @Bedders! NAKIVO Backup & Replication is using the Apache Log4j library, which is part of Apache Logging Services. You can manually fix the CVE-2021-44228 vulnerability by removing JndiLookup.class located in libs\log4j-core-2.2.jar. Note: If the libs folder contains log4j-core-fixed-2.2.jar instead of log4j-core-2.2.jar, it means that the issue was already fixed for your version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. For Linux: Go to the libs folder located inside NAKIVO Backup & Replication installation folder. To remove JndiLookup.class from the jar file run the following command: zip -q -d log4j-core*.jar org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class For Windows: Ensure you have 7z tool installed. Go to the libs folder located inside NAKIVO Backup & Replication installation folder. Use 7z to open the log4j-core-2.2.jar and remove JndiLookup.class from the jar file. Restart NAKIVO Backup & Replication. For NAS devices: If you are using a NAS, open an SSH connection to your device and locate NAKIVO Backup & Replication installation folder here: For ASUSTOR NAS: /usr/local/AppCentral/NBR For FreeNAS/TrueNAS (inside the jail): /usr/local/nakivo/director For NETGEAR NAS: /apps/nbr For QNAP NAS: /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/NBR For Raspberry PI: /opt/nakivo/director For Synology NAS: /volume1/@appstore/NBR For Western Digital NAS: /mnt/HD/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/NBR Note: Refer to the NAS vendor documentation to learn how to open an SSH connection to your NAS device. IMPORTANT: CVE-2021-44228 is a severe vulnerability. We strongly advise you to apply the manual fix as soon as you can. This is the best way to avoid the risks of security breaches. Please contact customer support if you require custom build of NAKIVO Backup & Replication that has the fix.

  14. Hi, @SALEEL! I am very sorry that we put you in such a position. The latest improvements in DSM7 were unexpected for everyone. And it makes us feel very sad that we can't provide you with our best service as usual. Our team was doing everything to accelerate the process. However, at this point, there is nothing we can do. I understand your disappointment, and I apologize for all the inconvenience it has caused you. One of our main values is customers satisfaction. That's why this situation is frustrating. If only it depended on us! At the moment I can only offer you the following options: 1. You can temporarily install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on some other host and use the NAS-based repository as a CIFS/NFS share. When DSM7 is officially supported, then it will be possible to install NAKIVO on NAS again. 2. Workaround for DSM 7: - Deploying a new NAKIVO installation somewhere else as Virtual Appliance (VA) or installing on a supported VM, Physical or NAS; - Share the repository folder on the Synology NAS with DSM7 as NFS / CIFS (SMB) share; - Add this repository as existing to the new NAKIVO installation; - Restore the configuration of old NAKIVO installation from Self-backup from the original repository. For now, we are working closely with Synology to prepare the release, and we are almost at the final stage. However, we expect that we will need a few more weeks till the final release. Again, I am very sorry for all the convenience!

  16. Great to get 2FA for the Login Just found the option Store backups in separate files: Select this option to enable this backup repository to store data of every machine in separate backup files. Enabling this option is highly recommended to ensure higher reliability and performance. Why this is more reliable? Does this have an effect on the global dedup? And can I convert the curent backup to this option? From my point of view, the Repos are the current bottleneck of Nakivo. if there is an improvement with this, it is very welcome!

  19. Anyone else have problems with Grand-Father-Son (GFS) retention scheme not working as expected? Daily backups work correctly and the retention is correct, but instead of getting weekly and Monthly backups, all my Full backups are set to yearly week after week at both my sites where I have tape libraries. (They expire 11 years from now) I opened a ticket, but they were not able to tell me anything and claimed that everything was working fine. At the time I was not doing daily backups, so I turned that on and they work, but they didn't affect my problem with yearly backups, so for now I'm turning it off to see what happens with just weekly and monthly backups. These are my settings: Retain one recovery point per day for 7 days Retain one recovery point per week for 4 weeks Retain one recovery point per month for 12 months Retain one recovery point per year for 11 years Tape Job Options: Create Full Backup: Every Saturday Tape appending: Start full backup with an empty tape** **I found that now that daily backups are turned on, Nakivo will start writing daily backups to my Full Backup tape before I get a chance to eject it. This is not desirable, but there is no options to segregate GFS tapes. Setting this to "Always start with an empty tape" would burn a tape each day, also not desirable, but I may have no choice. I would like to append all daily backups to the same tape and keep it in the library and only offsite my weekend full backups.

  21. The shortest way to integrate this without going vendor specific, is adding SAML 2.0. This would allow logins based on Microsoft 365 or other MFA vendors.

  25. Thank you. Someone from Nakivo Support helped me already. This is what I did: to increase java memory on NAKIVO application as following : 1. Stop NAKIVO service from the AppCenter 2. Connect to Synology via SSH using "root" 3. edit nkv-dirsvc file ( mostly that file is located in /volume1/@appstore/NBR/nkv-dirsvc ) and replace: SVC_OPTIONS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -server -XX:+AggressiveOpts -XX:-OmitStackTraceInFastThrow -Xnoagent -Xss320k -Xms128m -Xmx320m" with: SVC_OPTIONS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -server -XX:+AggressiveOpts -XX:-OmitStackTraceInFastThrow -Xnoagent -Xss320k -Xms128m -Xmx640m" 4. Start NAKIVO service Thank you. Juraj.

  30. Hi, I have some questions about: File share backup does not permits to choose Amazon S3 based repositories: is a function that will be implemented in the future ? File share recovery function offers an option to recover to "Custom location (CIFS/NFS)", however the function produces a zip file containing the recovered files; why not having a function that recover files directly into file system like that offered for virtual machines by "Granular recover > Individual files > Recover to the following server" function ? Will the File share backup supports in the future the backup of NTFS alternate streams and/or the file owner/security information ? Best Carlo

  32. 1. I have Backup Repository on NAS device that is mounted as NFS share. 2. I have Backup Copy Job with retention policy with 3 last recovery points. 3. Itselft on a backup repository you can see that VM have 31 points to restore instead of 3 that is setup. My problem that all my repositories always full up.

  33. So I am looking to update my VSphere cluster to 7.0.3.00100 and currently run Nakivo 10.4.0 and the Synology NAS is on DSM 6.2.4-25556 Update 2 and will NOT be upgraded to 7.0.1 because it does not support DSM 7. Do I just need to update to 10.4.1 to have this work fine? Or do I need 10.5 Again I am not on DSM for this particular unit.

  34. @mdovey Matthew, Your concerns are more than reasonable. As for your questions: i) Will Nakivo have to go through this approval process every time there is an update to the software? As far as we know, yes, it is. But the approval process is from the Synology side. NAKIVO just applies and waits for their approval. And we hope the next release will be faster. ii) Part of the trouble-shooting process often involves installing pre-release, beta or bespoke builds of the software. I can't see how this would work if there isn't a means for Synology to use external installers. NAKIVO always releases the Beta version for testing/demo before the GA version.If you have no environment to use the Beta (for example, on Synology DSM7), you can deploy NAKIVO Backup & Replication as VA in the VMWare for testing. At the moment, we are trying to figure how to adjust this new requirement from Synology. We are constantly releasing new versions to offer the most to our customers. However, now, we are aiming to find ways of accelerating the approval process on Synology side. I understand your frustration. And I honestly hope to inform you soon about an alternative solution to this compatibility issue.

  35. Ok, my apologies... Seems to be a QNAP issue... Or a network issue... SSH (SCP or Rsync) transfers from any remote server to the Intel QNAP tops on 200Mpbs... The weird thing is that same SCP from the internal network have no cap. My bets were wrong, just because Nakivo Transporter must use some kind of ssh transfer method, but not his fault. Maybe an internal firewall throttling conections from outside the network? (I have all "visible" firewalls offline) I totally reset the QNAP, still not installed Nakivo, and have the cap. The other QNAP just beside this one it's performing nice. (Arm one) Any clue...? I will send a support ticket to QNAP guys... Sorry again for all the misunderstanding.

  36. The problem was with Check_mk 2.0-agent, MaxConnectionsPerSource was set to 3, so that's why the agent stopped responding. I'm running some scripts via mrpe to check status of jobs.

  37. Hello, I tried to contact Nakivo support by chat but the person did not want to answer my questions. So I try here. Our company has just acquired 100 Nakivo BR Enterprise workloads. I have installed the director from the installation file in trial version. The trial version was in 10.2 and since I updated it to 10.3. I found the update download page by chance (or google search). Everything is working and I have no particular problems. I would like to know the following things: Is there a customer portal : - Which allows us to download Nakivo without going through the download form for trial versions? - that allows us to access a history of support requests? Do the support technicians in Europe speak French? Thank you in advance for your help. Roland Belistan

Replace the certificate to continue using this transporter Why was a certificate workting till today, when it expired 6 month ago? @Official Moderator can you share the information on the forum so that everyone can benefit?

  39. the support has already answered me. in fact, nakivo does not duplicate to wasabi. the solution would be to make a local backup with deduplication + 1 backup copy job
