Protection groups - Upgrade VBR to update 4

Post by masonit » Feb 07, 2019 9:42 am

Hi

We have an test environment with VBR 9.5 u3a and Veeam agents for windows 2.2. After upgrade of VBR to u4, agent backup is not working anymore. Agents in protection group says upgrade required. Isen't it possible to run VBR 9.5 u4 with Agents 2.2 (win) and 2.0.1 (Linux)?

Mine work, though the three Windows HA Clusters I back up are throwing Warnings for the passive node, saying the disks aren't available. Since an Agent upgrade requires a .NET 4.6 install, which requires a reboot, the upgrade won't happen for a few weeks.

Chuck,

Thank you for sharing. Could it be due to the failover being performed while backup job was running? Thanks!

Checked with my DBAs, and no, these clusters were not failed-over when backups were running.

And it only happened the one time; all runs since then did not throw any warnings.
