I am using Veeam version and the latest patch and am having trouble adding a Backblaze B2 repository. I am encountering the error message 'Failed to load Amazon S3 Compatible configuration'.

  • Veeam is a data availability and protection service that consists of three products: Veeam Availability Suite, Veeam Backup and Replication, and Veeam ONE. This reputable platform automates backup and recovery to reduce the workload of IT professionals. What’s more, it can restore files within 15 minutes of an incident.
  • If a customer wants to tier backups to Backblaze B2 WITH immutability enabled, they must NOT use Lifecycle rules. Veeam will manage the deletion of object versions as necessary. Lifecycle rules should remain at the default, 'Keep all versions of the file.'
  • With help from Backblaze, Kings County natively tiered backups from Veeam to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage, enabling them to implement Veeam’s forever forward incrementals and reduce their overall IT footprint and costs.

Backup and cloud storage company Backblaze, is giving all Veeam users access to simple, reliable, affordable data storage that allows for a vastly expanded quantity of restore points. For any company running Veeam, on-prem storage can be a huge budget and infrastructure stressor, and up to now, the only solution was to buy more hardware.

I have opened a ticket with Veeam support using Case #04593670 but know that may take a while to receive a response. I recall reading a forum thread somewhere that stated that only Veeam versions 10.0.0 and 9.5 was currently working with adding a new B2 Repository due to an issue on the Backblaze side. The thread also indicated it was possible to update to the latest version after already adding the repo. Of course I can't find this thread for the life of me.
So I am just wanted to see if anyone can confirm this is true before I attempt to downgrade to an earlier version.

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 22, 2021--

Leading storage cloud company Backblaze, and Jamf (JAMF) —the standard in Apple enterprise management—announced a joint solution partnership to make Backblaze backup and data protection services available with ease in the Jamf admin ecosystem.

Paired with the announcement from Backblaze of updates to Mass Deployment tools to streamline commands for installs and updates of its backup app, these improvements offer a step change in ease for IT Administrators tasked with safeguarding computers, servers, NAS, or Veeam data.

The Jamf Partnership

Jamf is the standard in Apple enterprise management, so our partnership means that the thousands of admins in the Jamf ecosystem can more easily use Backblaze in their backup and data protection strategies for businesses.

“Providing the tools to connect, manage, and protect Apple products, while streamlining the user experience is core to Jamf’s mission—adding Backblaze and their latest Mac deployment options to the Jamf Marketplace Mac admins we serve is hugely helpful. We’re very excited to be deepening our collaboration with Backblaze.” — Sam Weiss—Manager, Solution Partner Program, Jamf

The Mass Deployment Upgrade

For any team administering backups for a large fleet of machines, the improvements to our mass deployment suite streamline commands for new user installs and add support for installs on existing users’ workstations when they’re replaced due to refresh policy or equipment loss. Backblaze will introduce an updated Mac client for mass installs within weeks, after having just recently delivered an updated Windows Mass Silent Installer (MSI) for workforce PCs.

Netgovern, an information governance company, adopted Backblaze Groups to manage their team’s backups. Roland Gaspar, IT Director, described the ease of use he experienced when administering backups for all employees:

“In terms of ease of deployment and the simplicity of the whole experience—from downloading the software, to enabling the service, to requesting the restore—all of that just works with Backblaze.”

Tiger bridge

As companies’ refresh policies increasingly require workstation replacements every 4-5 years, and technology companies increasingly do so more like every 3 years, these latest mass install improvements translate to significant time savings, fast, for IT admins.
