  1. @darkhorse, Hi! Everything depends on your needs. But to make it easy and choose between one of the Microsoft 365 suites and a standalone email solution, answer the following questions: What is the size of your business? (if you have a small business with a simple structure, Exchange Online might satisfy your needs.) How collaborative is your working environment? (If your type of company requires a lot of communication and interactions between the team member, definitely consider one of the Microsoft 365 plans.) What is the nature of your business? (If you require data management tools or storage solutions, for instance, Microsoft 365 might be just a perfect fit to help your business in more ways than just offering email hosting.) What is your budget? (If you want to keep the cost as low as possible, then Exchange Online alone is cheaper. However, the difference between the most affordable plans is one dollar per user per month.) If you want to dive deeper into the topic, check this blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/exchange-online-vs-microsoft-office-365-for-business-email-hosting/
  2. @Xavier.rob, Hi! First of all, yes, an administrator can set a host profile and copy the settings to other profiles. As for the workflow, it would look as follows: Configure an ESXi host that you use as a reference. Extract the configuration from your ESXi host to the host profile Deploy new ESXi hosts you want to have the shared configuration Import host profile's configuration to new ESXi host Customize the configuration (hostnames, IP addresses that have to be unique for every host). To find the detailed description of each step, check this blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-create-and-set-up-vmware-vsphere-host-profiles/
  3. @Yosmar, Hi! To fix the VM consolidation needed status, do the following: Go to VMware vSphere Client. Click the VM name > Snapshots > Consolidate. You will see a confirmation message: "This operation consolidates all redundant redo logs on your virtual machine. Are you sure you want to continue?" Click Yes to consolidate VM disk files. Note: If you are worried that you can lose your data during disk consolidation, back up your VMware VM. Wait until the task is completed. You can see the progress at the bottom of your VMware vSphere Client. If the VM is running, VM performance can degrade during this operation. The needed time depends on the virtual machine size, the number of snapshots and your VM load. After the VMware disk consolidation is finished, the error message will disappear. However, it might happen that you'll get another error message. Check the guide on how to solve the potential errors in this blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/fix-vmware-error-virtual-machine-disks-consolidation-needed/ Let me know if you need any further help.
  4. @Pavels Ruhmans, It may depend on the repository type. In the "Incremental with Full" Repository, the recovery points may be deleted by retention policy only in chains consisting of one full backup and all its increments. Another required condition to delete the "Full+it's increments" chain is that there should be enough recovery points in other "Full+it's increments" chains to fully suit the retention policy. Thus, for the "Incremental With Full" Repository type, the retention policy shows the minimum number of recovery points that should be present in a backup. Also, if backups are immutable, they cannot be removed until immutability expires. Please send our support team a Support Bundle with the main database included so that our engineers can investigate your configuration: https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/User-Guide/Content/Settings/Support-Bundles.htm Let me know if have any additional questions.
  5. @Mario, Thanks a lot for sharing! Happy holidays to you as well *Rudolf's emoji*
  6. Hi, @Hakim! To import contacts to Outlook Online, do the following: Open Outlook Online in your browser. Open the Menu and click People to see your contacts. Click Contacts > Your contacts. Tap on Manage in the right corner and choose Import contacts. Now, choose the CSV contacts file and upload it. Click Import. Try to use UTF-8 encoding for better compatibility. Once the upload is completed, you will see the message saying "Looking good ". Click Close. You are done. If you want to use other import methods, check our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-import-contacts-to-outlook-365/
  7. Hi, @Hakim! Yes, you can connect pretty much any USB device to VMware VMs by using the USB passthrough feature. It is available starting with ESXi 4.1. For the USB passthrough functioning, you need 3 main components: the arbitrator, physical USB device and USB controller. The arbitrator is an ESXi server service that scans physical USB devices. The arbitrator is enabled on ESXi by default. A USB controller has physical USB ports connected. There is also a virtual USB controller created especially for a VM running on a hypervisor. A virtual USB controller interacts with a physical one. A physical USB device. Note: Not more than 20 USB devices can be connected to one virtual machine or ESXi host. You can check all the system requirements and the procedure of connecting a USB device to a virtual machine in our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-use-usb-devices-with-a-vmware-vsphere-virtual-machine/ Let me know if you get any questions along the way.
  8. Hi,@Garry.web! It is great that you think about endpoint security as it is one of the weakest parts of the network. To protect your endpoints, consider the following: Educate your team about cybersecurity. Primarily, ensure having complex passwords, no administrator access for the employees that don't need it, regular security patch updates and general knowledge about how malware spreads. Organize your network to have more control over it. Keep track of each endpoint, and don't let your team use just any device to connect to the network. The best is to run a vulnerability test before allowing any device. Think of advanced protection. The antivirus isn't enough for decent protection. Consider event log collection, real-time protection, application whitelisting and other advanced features. Never neglect updates. Regular patches and licensing updates are crucial to securing your network. New versions can remove the bugs that make devices vulnerable. User automated detection solutions to identify breaches and monitor the environment continuously. Check more about the endpoint security in our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/the-case-for-endpoint-backup-in-the-age-of-cloud-storage/
  9. @Connor0967, There are few options where you can find the old emails: 1. Check the Old Email folder in the Outlook Email Client. This option works if you have a Microsoft Outlook app. Go to the Folder menu tab Click New Search Folder Select Old email (Organizing Mail section) Choose the period you need (e.g., older than three months). Select the Microsoft 365 account you need. Click OK and close the window. Now, return to the main window where you can already see the folder named Older than 3 months in the Search Folders section. Click the folder to check all Outlook emails older than three months. Note: if you delete this folder, your emails won't be deleted. 2. Check the Cache Exchange mode setting It is a setting in Outlook that defines the period for email storage. To check what is the current period for you, do the following: Click File Go to Account Settings and choose the needed account and click Change. Check Cached Exchange Mode settings. Note: It is only available for Exchange accounts. By default, the local storage for emails works for a year. To change it, move the slider from 1 year to All. Click Next to complete the configuration and reboot Outlook. Now, the emails shouldn't be deleted after 12 months. Check more details about finding your old Outlook emails in our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-find-old-emails-in-microsoft-365/ Let me know if you need any further assistance.
  10. Hi, @Loki Rodriguez! There are numerous monitoring tools for each specific case. Could you please specify what you need to monitor exactly? In the meantime, you can check the general information about the IT infrastructure monitoring in our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/all-you-should-know-about-it-infrastructure-monitoring/ It clarifies the main principles and methods of IT monitoring, as well as types of monitoring and distribution models. Apart from that, check out the most effective tools to monitor VMware and Hyper-V environments. https://www.nakivo.com/vmware-backup/vmware-performance-monitoring.jpg https://www.nakivo.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Infographic-for-Hyper-V-backup-_Microsoft-Hyper-V-Tools-for-Monitoring-Hosts-and-Guest-VMs__new.png If you have any additional questions, let me know.
  11. Hi, @ozarktech! Please try to run this command: sudo zip -q -d log4j-core-*.jar org/apache/logging/log4j/core/lookup/JndiLookup.class Let me know if it helps.
  12. @Bedders, I'm glad it worked for you! Thank you for noticing that. It's all fixed by now
  13. Hi, @Edwin van Ree! The repository type can only be selected on a repository creation. However, a backup copy job is able to transfer backups to a repository of another type, and then old backups may be dismissed. This article describes the migration to an Incremental with Full repository (stores backups in separate files), but it works in the same way in the reverse direction: https://helpcenter.nakivo.com/display/KB/How+to+Move+Backups+to+an+Incremental-with-Full-Backups+Repository Let me know if I can do anything else for you.
  14. @Gavino, The CVE-2021-44228 vulnerability only affects the NAKIVO Director. root@va:/opt/nakivo# find / -iname log4j-core-2.2.jar /opt/nakivo/director/libs/log4j-core-2.2.jar <<<<<<<<< Thus, you do not need to do it on your Transporter VA. Please let me know if you have additional questions.
  15. @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!
  16. Hi, @Gavino! Please refer to this tread https://forum.nakivo.com/index.php?/topic/7574-log4j-cve-2021-44228/#comment-9145 If you have any additional questions, please let me know.
  17. 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.

  18. Hi, @sys.erp! The migration process isn't that complicated. Make sure you consider the following aspects: Transfer Gmail to Microsoft 365 Transfer Google Docs to Microsoft 365 Configure your domain Add users to Microsoft 365 Create a list of email addresses Create migration points Create a migration batch Check MX records Import Google contacts and calendar to Microsoft 365 You can find a complete description of each step in our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-migrate-from-g-suite-to-office-365/ Let me know if you need any further assistance.
  19. Hello, @tommy.cash! You can run Ubuntu on Windows using Hyper-V in the enhanced session mode. To do so, you will have to follow these steps: 1. Creating and configuring a virtual machine: Set name and location Select generation Specify memory Configure networking Connect the virtual hard disk Select installation options 2. Installing Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on your virtual machine 3. Configuring Ubuntu after installation You can check a detailed walkthrough on installing Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on Hyper-V https://www.nakivo.com/blog/install-ubuntu-20-04-on-hyper-v-with-enhanced-session/
  20. Hello, @Ray Johns! When you delete a file from OneDrive in Windows Explorer, the file moves to the Recycle Bin. You can access it in Windows and the OneDrive web interface. Note: When you delete files in the OneDrive web interface, they won't be moved to the Recycle Bin in Windows. So basically, Microsoft offers two native recovery methods: 1. Using Windows Recycle Bin To recover a file, go to the Recycle Bin in Windows and search for the deleted file. Click the file and select Restore. Now you restored the file to its original location. However, the file stays in the OneDrive Recycle Bin if you check the OneDrive web interface. 2. Using OneDrive Recycle Bin This method's advantage is that you can use any OS with a supported browser. It can also be helpful in case you can't find your file/folder in the Windows Recycle Bin, or your Windows configuration doesn't keep deleted files in the Recycle Bin. To restore files from OneDrive Recycle Bin: Open your browser Go to https://login.microsoftonline.com Enter the credentials > go to OneDrive Open Recycle bin. Select the deleted files for recovery Click Restore Note: If you don't see your files in the Recycle Bin, go to the Second-stage recycle bin. Deleted files are moved there 30 days after deletion. And also, remember that deleted files will be stored for 93 days maximum. It combines both Recycle Bin and Second-stage recycle bin storage time. After this period, there is no possibility of recovering your files using the native features. If you have any other questions left, let me know.
  21. Hi, @Kiya Wilks! When it comes to data protection, all the experts recommend following the 3-2-1 backup rule. According to the plan, you should store one of your copies offsite. Cloud-based storages including Amazon products can be a solution for an offsite data storage. Amazon EC2 means Elastic Cloud Computing. Amazon EC2 instances are VMs running in the Amazon cloud on Amazon servers. The data is stored in EBS (Elastic Block Storage) volumes. EBS volumes are similar to virtual disks. Basically, an EBS is a container to store data and is classified as block storage. Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is the Amazon object storage service. In this case, a data storing container is a bucket. Amazon S3 isn't an example of a block storage. Basic data storage units are buckets, which makes Amazon S3 an object-based storage. Its main advantage is versioning that can be very helpful for data recovery. If you want to learn more about Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2 backup and restore, check this how-to guide https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-use-amazon-s3-and-ec2-for-backup-and-restore/ Let me know if I can do anything else for you.
  22. Hi, @eric_76! One of the options for you would be to save emails to a desktop. It is a versatile option. You can save one or multiple emails to single or multiple files. You can also export emails to PDF or other file formats (e.g., CSV or PST files). This method works for both Outlook Online and Microsoft Office Outlook. Check a complete step-by-step guide on how to export your emails to desktop on our blog https://www.nakivo.com/blog/saving-microsoft-365-emails-to-desktop/ If you get any questions along the way, let me know.
