Great news!!

Is there any complication upgrading from RC?
Has the patch 2 for B&R been upgraded to be installable on all servers, including production ones?
Is there a list of changes since RC, apart from bug fixes?

Thanks! :)

Hi Renaud, upgrading from previous (BETA, RC) versions is not supported, it should be a clean installation.
Gostev wrote:• Because of significant changes in both configuration and backup formats, we cannot provide backward compatibility for backups, or an in-place upgrade from BETA code. Please, remove Veeam Endpoint Backup BETA using Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs first before installing this RC build.

• For the same reasons, we may not be able to provide the upgrade to RTM build, and/or ability to restore from RC backups in RTM build. So please, do not assume that such compatibility will be available.
As regards Veeam B&R update 2, then it is targeted to be released later this month.

Thanks!

Too bad for the upgrade. We'll be waiting for the update, then.
Thx.

For those of us upgrading from the RC - I assume we should uninstall and re-install the RTM version? Also, will that mean I need to recreate my full backup job and the recovery ISO?

I've been waiting months for this....but it seems the client is released but Update 2 for B&R v8 is not available? disappointing.

Pax,

Update 2 will be released later this month. Because it combines not only the integration from VEB and VBR, but also will be ready for vSphere 6 support it needs a little longer to test and verify.

But don't worry, it will be here soon :-)

So this is available but I can't use it yet until B&R is updated? Convenient.

Andy,

The product itself can be used already if you don't want to use B&R repository as a target. If you do want to do that, then you will have to have a bit more patience... Stay tuned

Veeam backup repository is just one of many backup targets we support, so you can certainly start using Veeam Endpoint Backup immediately.

Congratulations on the release.

I have done a bare metal restore with the RC just yesterday, and it worked without any problems whatsoever.
Since the RC and the Release were not compatible, I held off with larger scale deployments on our endpoints. With the release yesterday, I can finally put your product to good use.

I understand the product can use virtually any storage device, not just a B&R repository. I'm just saying, if the Update 2 is truly only 2 weeks away wouldn't have it just made sense to hold off and release them together? I'm no product manager, just my two cents...

Not a Product Management call, purely marketing decision (which I agree with though). Veeam Endpoint Backup deserved a separate announcement. Otherwise, the two strong announcements would just overshadow each other - and neither one would get the proper coverage. By separating the announcements, we ensure great coverage for both.
