Access to the Beta

Post by Dimtar » Dec 07, 2014 11:36 pm

Hi all.

I have signed up to the public beta with 3 different email addresses. I have gotten a few emails in regards to other products or announcements but never access to the beta. Is this right? Do I just need to wait longer for a spot or is there an issue?

Thanks,
D

Just like to say 1 minute after I signed up for account I got an email from Veeam. The first few lines are as follows:
"The public beta for Veeam Endpoint Backup (VEB) has been launched last week, and as of today, invitations were sent to 3'000 beta users (out of 15'000 who signed up). We will keep sending more invites while monitoring our small endpoint support team load, because we want to ensure we are able to provide support to all beta testers who runs into issues."

Can you please clear your browser cache, then login to our website and try the link? Do you copy paste the password or type it yourself?

Hi Gregory,

See Anton's response to the question about download availability:
Gostev wrote:The public beta for Veeam Endpoint Backup (VEB) has been launched last week, and as of today, invitations were sent to 3'000 beta users (out of 15'000 who signed up). We will keep sending more invites while monitoring our small endpoint support team load, because we want to ensure we are able to provide support to all beta testers who runs into issues. Not too many of those are being reported so far - in fact, as of now we have had more feature requests posted by beta users on the dedicated forum than technical support issues submitted. The way it looks right now, we should complete sending download links to the remaining 12'000 users within the next 10 days, so that everyone could compete for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablets which will go to 6 most useful beta testers.
Thanks!

Same here. The link takes me to a login page. If I log on using the email I registered with and the password supplied in the email I get the error 'email or password is not valid. If I use the password I am registered with on the site I get through, but then am presented with a blank page, which turns into the home page if I click refresh.

Robbie, you should definitely use the password that you normally logon to veeam.com with to download, open cases, manage licenses. Please, try that with a different browsers. There should not be any issues on our side, we had about 1000 successful downloads in the past 24 hours. But let us know if you still cannot get it, and we will figure something out for you personally.

To keep it simple and fair to everyone, we have decided to do in the order of beta registrations.

I had the same error, but I found the solution:
The link that you see in the email is correct, but if you click on it, a different wrong link is opened. That is the reason why e.g. Thunderbird warn about the mail as Phishing.
As I copy&paste the text of the link to the browser, I got to the download-page.

Hi,

same problem here: I cannot access beta.
I received the email completed with instructions; I created a new account on veeam as I was not already registered.
Now, if I click on email link it asks me to login, I do it and than nothing... blank page.
On URL bar I always get something similar to http://www.veeam.com/oauth?code=JiBmwGc ... aa36fdacbb
If I press reload I go to veeam home page.
If I click on email link once more, now that I'm correctly logged in, I get the blank page as before without being asked to login.

Please ask for any information I can provide to help you!

Thanks
Piero

@Sebastian, Thanks for sharing, I will pass this feedback to our web team

@Piero, can you log in to our website manually, and then try to open the link you have received in the email?

Hi,

when I try this procedure I get Error 500.
I'm using http://vee.am/veb handwritten in browser url.
If I use the email complete link http://link.veeam.com/blablabla I'm redirected to http://vee.am/veb?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9ws ... LAzhCWk%3D and "Cannot display page" in browser.

I finally got past all the error 500, 404 and redirect loops!

Short version: Create a new account and do not in any way link it with Gmail, facebook or linkedIn. The download link kept stopping on the OAuth stage for me. Also use Chrome/FF not IE.
  1. https://login.veeam.com
  2. Create a new account from the right with "create Veeam account" NOT "Create account and sign in with {gmail}{facebook}{linkedin}"
  3. Create account and complete the email activation. It will have a be different email address (doesn't have to be the same as your BETA invite)
  4. Follow the Beta invite link you received previously.
  5. If you enter a redirect loop after the "Social" page, close the tab and open the Beta invite link again.
  6. Enter the Beta password and click the download link (doesn't work in IE)
Didn't work with IE for me. Had to use chrome or the .zip file link went into a continuous loop.

I hope this helps someone. I signed up to post this.

EDIT:
