The easiest way to disable UAC (User Account Control) on Windows Server 2016 is to modifying the registry key on the server. You may use this reg file to Disable the UAC. Simply, double click the registry file and settings will be imported on the machine. This script can also to be used on Windows Server 2012 R2. 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.
This week, I participated in a live webinar in french as an official speaker between Veeam and Microsoft for presenting new Veeam Availability Platform with Windows Server 2016 integration with my friend Seyfallah Tagrerout (Microsoft MVP Cloud and DataCenter Management – Twitter). It was an amazing experience! Thanks to Jean-François Albertini (Systems Engineer, Veeam France) and Kseniya Skovorodko (Team Lead Online Events EMEA, Veeam Software) The video is available on Veeam’s website here 🙂
Stefan Renner (Alliance Systems Engineer) and Shawn Lieu (Veeam Solutions Architect, vExpert) published a white paper named Configuration Guide and Best Practices for NetApp and Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 (February 2017).
Veeam published one of my projects as a Success Story focused on Modern Backup, Replication, offsite backup with Backup Copy Job and WAN Accelerator. WAN Accelerator feature allows offsite backup and replication always involve moving large volumes of data between remote sites. The most common problems that backup administrators encounter during are the following ones: Insufficient network bandwidth to support VM data traffic and transmission of redundant data. To solve these problems, Veeam Backup & Replication offers the WAN acceleration technology that helps optimize data transfer over WAN. The WAN acceleration technology is specific for remote jobs: backup copy jobs and replication jobs. Being a built-in feature, Veeam’s WAN acceleration does not add complexity and cost to the backup infrastructure. The client is OTV Nord-Ouest (Corp. Veolia Water Systems), Veolia Water is the world leader in water services. It handles water and wastewater services for clients in the public sector and in various industries. It also creates and constructs the required technology and infrastructure. You can find the Succes Story on Veeam’s website: here. Basically, the use case is written in French but it’s a good way to learn a beautiful language. 🙂 Enjoy it!
With the confirmation that I am still on the Veeam Vanguard program, I will be pleased to participate once again in the VeeamON 2017 event, which will take place from May 16 to 18 in the United States, more precisely in New Orleans, Louisiana! Hope to be able going to the event because my wife is pregnant so I’m going to be a dad for the first time! 🙂
