This is a very interesting warning. I migrated many VBR servers, and it’s the first time I’ve encountered this warning.
The detailed warning message is below:
Warning Failed to connect to Red Hat Virtualization plug-in: Failed to login to platform service: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.
QNAP QuObjects application is free and certificated for objects with immutability, which means you can use it as object storage within Veeam for a backup repository that supports their immutability feature.
Veeam released the version of Veeam Backup for Microsoft 7a on December 5, 2023. The Cumulative patches contain Veeam Backup and replication v12.1 compatibility and the ability to set email notifications with Google and M365 accounts in Veeam Explorers.
Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager is a centralized management and reporting tool designed by Veeam Software for overseeing Veeam Backup & Replication deployments. It allows administrators to control and monitor their backup infrastructure through a web-based interface, making it easier to manage large-scale environments.
When you install Veeam Backup & Replication v12.1, the Veeam Backup & Replication console 12.1 is automatically installed on the backup server. If you want to remotely access Veeam Backup & Replication v12.1, install the Veeam Backup & Replication console 12.1 on a dedicated machine.

Today, I noticed two fresh vulnerabilities on the VBR12.1 Manager and console servers. Certain .net core requirements are installed when the product is installed. Unfortunately, The .net isn’t patched automatically through Windows updates.

Veeam Backup & Replication 12.1 is the newer build of version 12, and the major new features and enhancements were added in Veeam Backup & Replication v12.1. e.g. Detect and identify cyber threats, Respond and recover faster from malware, Ensure security and compliance, Veeam App for ServiceNow, Backup of object storage, Veeam CDP enhancements, Veeam AI Assistant, etc.
For the Failback to the specified location, Veeam Backup & Replication must transfer the entire VM data, including its configuration and virtual disc content. Choose this option if you cannot use the original VM or restore it from a backup.
Because Veeam Backup & Replication only needs to transfer differences between the original/recovered VM and VM replica, the failback to the original virtual machine restored in a different location option helps reduce recovery time and network traffic.
Failback is returning operations to the primary site after a disaster recovery event. It reverses the failover process by replicating any changes made to the virtual machine during the Failover state back to the primary site and then redirecting users and applications back to the primary site.
Planned failover is the smooth manual switching from a primary VM to its replica with minor downtime. Planned failover is proper when you know primary VMs are planning to go offline, and you need to switch the workload from the original VMs to their replicas as soon as possible. For example, you can use planned failover to perform data center migration, maintenance, or software upgrades on primary VMs. You can also perform planned failover if you see signs of an impending disaster.
One method for completing failover is to use failover undo. When you undo failover, you return to the original VM from a VM replica. When a virtual machine replica is in the Failover state, Veeam Backup & Replication discards all changes made to the replica. This is because the Failover state is intended to be a temporary state used to restore the virtual machine to operation quickly in the event of a disaster.
Failing over a virtual machine to a disaster recovery site involves replicating the virtual machine and its data to the disaster recovery site and then activating the replicated copy in the event of a disaster or other disruptive event that renders the original virtual machine unavailable.
This procedure creates a replication job with seeding to replicate the specified VMs to the disaster recovery site. If a disaster strikes and the production VM stops working properly, you can fail over to its replica.
This procedure creates a replication job to replicate the specified VMs to the disaster recovery site. If a disaster strikes and the production VM stops working properly, you can fail over to its replica.
This procedure creates a replication job to replicate the specified production virtual machines at the same production site.
Periodic copy jobs can be scheduled to run during non-business hours or low-activity periods, reducing the impact on production systems. This allows you to efficiently manage backup and copy operations without causing disruption.
Immediate copies help reduce your RPO, which is the maximum allowable data loss in the event of a disaster. By creating copies as soon as new data is backed up, you ensure that your data loss is minimal.
