Feature Request: Support for VMM Semi-Annual Branch

Veeam Logoby EagleIJoe » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:46 am

Dear PMs,

please add the support for now released 1801 and future semi-annual releases of VMM. As you are utilizing PowerShell under the hood, I guess it will even work now, but is not supported as confirmed via a case.

Kind regards

The 1801 came out after Update 3 release, so we're going to test it out and support it down the road. Thanks.

It would be nice for Veeam to do testing on Windows Server Insider Preview builds and System Center previews so that new releases can be supported quicker. Also assuming testing doesn't find any issues that require changes on the Veeam side, it would also be nice to not have to wait for the next Veeam update to get "official" support.

It would be nice for Veeam to do testing on Windows Server Insider Preview builds and System Center previews so that new releases can be supported quicker.

We do that, but typically we discover quite a few differences between preview and GA builds which require us to re-conduct numerous tests.

Also assuming testing doesn't find any issues that require changes on the Veeam side, it would also be nice to not have to wait for the next Veeam update to get "official" support.

We're still planning to test it soon to check whether it doesn't break anything. I will update the topic, once I have more information.

Thanks.

Hey nmdange,

What version of Hyper-V are you running with the 1801 release? (Just out of curiosity...)

Thanks
Mike

I have Hyper-V hosts running 2012 R2, 2016 and 1709. I actually haven't upgraded VMM just yet, even though VMM 2016 doesn't officially support 1709. I'm also thinking of taking two dev hosts and running Windows Server Insider Preview builds on them now that Microsoft supports in-place upgrading preview builds. When I have time to get to it ;)

Hi, are there any updates on this? Is anyone running SCVMM 1801 / Hyper-V 2016 with Veeam 9.5 without issue?

Thanks,

James

So far I haven't hit any issues but it's been less than a week.
