We did a webex session with Veaam Engineer and didnt get anywhere. My concern is, the same id was used to install the original Veeam instance and now we are facing this issue. Even the 4.0.1 wont install anymore now. It is something to do with the format of entering the instance name. It is expecting something like "localhost\instance name" . In our case, hostname and instance is the same so we tried different combinations and gives the same misleading error message.
