I am not.
I would expect that somehow you could share the root of IBM i and then
use Veeam on a Windows server to save everything that way. As I'm not
aware of a Veeam agent for IBM i, this means you'll need to create some
save files or image catalogs for things like security, config and others
Veeam of course saves to it's own local storage so you'll need
sufficient storage there to save all of IBM i. Then of course you'll
need to save from there to tape or some off-site location or the data is
subject to fire/flood etc in a disaster. Also consider that it's
probably that in a disaster you'd need to rebuild the Veeam server and
storage. Restore the tapes to Veeam. Restore the windows server where
Veeam is used to back up the iBM i data. Then, find a way to rebuild the
iBM i machine, from some other media. Then finally restore from Veeam to
the IFS. Then from the IFS restore the data from the save files.
This sounds like a wonderful scenario to me. I can see billable hours
ALL over the place for assisting in such a recovery! And of course that
sharing of the root, that's one of my favorite things to do, everyone
Actually this sounds like a horrible plan, starting with sharing the
root. Don't ever do that. Ever. Just don't. No.
As I said in a previous post recently. ALWAYS START WITH RECOVERY. Ask
yourself the question: "If my Power System is somehow destroyed, don't
care how, how do I put it back together."
Focus on the fewest number of the most reliable steps. Also assure that
those steps can be done by any qualified IBM i administrator, not just
'one guy' who designed and scripted a setup like the above.
Now perhaps you could use Veeam, (I do but only on Windows) but it
doesn't sounds straight forward, simple, or easily recovered from.

Is anyone using Veeam for backing up the IBMi?
The Network side is saying that I can use it as well.
