I have confirm that it does work in 2.0 final release. I have only done two but it worked.
1. Configure and perform a Full backup with VAW to a local storage. (NOT "Backup to another location" this will not work)
2. Place the backup chain into the required folder on cloud repository. See the example below to make sure you have a valid path to your backups For example, your original files reside in C:\VeeamBackup\Backup Job 1 and need to be moved to Veeam cloud repository into following folder: C:\Backup. Under C:\Backup you will need to create a folder named after the tenant account that is used to access the repository. In my test lab, the account was Tenant2, so the folder name would be Tenant2. The complete path to the backup files would be C:\Backup\Tenant2\Backup Job 1
3. Rescan VBR repository. Here is a brief guide on repository rescan: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/vsp ... ories.html
4. Reconfigure VAW job to the required VBR cloud repository.
After that an incremental restore point should be created on a cloud repository.
FYI it does work on Linux repository. You just need to make sure the job folder is in the correct place/tenant on the repository.
