Just a head up, our QC has found another issue with this update. This second issue is completely unrelated to the previous one, and has to deal with Windows 2008 and earlier VMs.

Quick summary of all known issues so far:
1. Backing up Windows 2008R2 and later VMs on Hyper-V 2012 R2 hosts fails after update. Hotfix for this issue is already available from Veeam support.
2. Restoring Windows 2008 and earlier backups made on updated Hyper-V 2012 R2 hosts fails. No solution at the moment (my contact at Microsoft has just confirmed the issue present).

I will keep providing updates on the situation in this topic. You can subscribe to notifications by clicking the link at the bottom left of this page.

Hot fix for the 2nd issue has been implemented, and put into automated test lab for overnight stress testing. If all goes well, we will start pilot deployments tomorrow morning.

The KB is missing the file path on step 5. It's: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup

Also, the KB doesn't state what type of backup is required in Step 7. Is an incremental sufficient or does it need to be a full?

Incremental run is sufficient. I have asked support to update the article. Thank you!

For me the path is C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\
and not C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\backup
why is that?

Frank, what path are you referring to? The fixed DLL files should be placed in the C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup folder, there are no DLL files in the parent directory.

Hi,
I have the same issue on a server but can't download the hotfix. The ftp link provided in the KB (http://www.veeam.com/kb1863) doesn't work for me...
