Since 2020 has already begun, I wanted to do a little recap of the blog posts I wrote in 2019. I therefore picked the top 5 most read posts of 2019 in regards to their views.
The outcome is kind of interesting as it is a great mix of old and newer articels. Anyway, here is the list of the top 5 most read posts of 2019.
Most read post number 5 – Using VM Tags with vSphere and Veeam Backup & Replication
Number 5 of the most read posts of 2019 is the one I made regarding the use of VM tags with vSphere and Veeam Backup & Replication. VMware vSphere tags are a great way to categorize virtual machines and therefore classify them into backup policies. In this article I describe how to achieve this via the vSphere Web Client and of course with VMware PowerCLI. The post had about 900 unique views in 2019.

Most read post number 4 – My Top 5 Veeam ONE Reports for VMware
Number 4 of the most read posts of 2019 is about a top 5 list of my favourite Veeam ONE reports for VMware vSphere. I often use these regarding infrastructure assessments or preparation on implementing or changing a VMware or Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. All in all I would say, that these reports helped me a lot in regards to my work ! The post had about 1000 unique views in 2019.

Most read post number 3 – Modern Authentication with Veeam Backup for Office 365 V3
Please keep in mind, that even if the title is for version 3 of Office 365, this also works for version 4. In this article I wrote a step-by-step guide on how to configure a Microsoft Graph application for using it with Veeam. However you need to do a lot of configuration in the Azure AD so I decided to blog about it in a simple way. The post had about 2600 unique views in 2019.

Most read post number 2 – How to reset the vCenter Server Appliance root password
Surprisingly, the post I made about resetting the vCenter Server appliance root password, was the second most viewed post in 2019. The post had about 4000 unique views in 2019 which is a lot for me ! Furthermore I wrote this article, as I encountered the problem myself and found a VMware KB for that. In the end I decided to blog about is as well.

Most read post number 1 – Restore Microsoft Teams data with Veeam for Microsoft Office 365
Finally, the by far most shared and best working post in 2019 was the one I made about restoring Microsoft Teams items with Veeam Backup for Office 365. I guess it was that “successful”, because no one tried to do that before. As a matter of fact, I really wanted to know, what can be done and what can’t be done. I put a lot of work into this post regarding the demo setup but it was worth it! In the meantime, Igor Arkhangelskiy published a blog post on the official Veeam blog where he shows how to restore deleted Microsoft Teams and OneNote items. Take a look at it as well please! The post had about 5000 unique visits and therefore was the best one in 2019.
All in all I must say, that I’m very happy with 2019 and thankful for everything which has happened. Also a big thanks to everyone involved in th vCommunity. You guys rock!
As always, thanks for reading and have a great day.
