Is 2.0 out of beta

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

Is 2.0 out of beta

Veeam Logoby quigmeister » Fri Mar 24, 2017 1:30 pm

Everywhere I look, all I see is beta. Is the new agent for Windows 2.0 out of beta? If so, where do I get it at?

Thanks,

Quigmeister

I suppose it would behoove me to be more explanatory. I am trying to test this out to see how it works and it just instantly fails. I just installed it on a machine and am trying to run a backup to our Veeam VBR repository. It says Error: Unknown invoker method: 1008. I thought I saw an error before as well about not having made recovery image. Since I was trying to test this on a virtual machine, access to a USB drive wouldn't be too easy. Can't really do a CD. Thoughts?

Image recovery image has nothing to do with this error message. Please review this post for the solution.

Is there an estimate when the official release is going to come out? (Unfortunately beta will no suffice our needs)
I am pushing to keep Veeam in our environment, but everybody else wants a solution that does it all (virtual AND physical).
Are we looking at Q2? Q3? next year?

Having played with the recovery image creation I just wanted to mention that usb/cd is not required as it actually creates an iso which you can store on the network.

Can’t provide the exact date but it should be out soon
iso which you can store on the network

Yes. Bare metal restore to a blank VM is an option - just mount an ISO and use it for boot.

Gostev just said "mid-April" to "early-May".

From his email today:

Here's an update on the upcoming Veeam releases for the next few weeks for your planning purposes. Our QC currently has the release candidate builds of Update 2 for Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 and Veeam Agent for Windows 2.0 in hand, and are starting the full regression test cycle. If all goes well, we should have the RTM builds around mid-April. This is when our support will start pilot deployments of both products as usual - we will be reaching out to those of you with support cases open on the issues these updates address. And barring any showstoppers, both releases should become generally available around late-April or early-May. Our Windows agent is actually a bit more "ready", however it is dependent on the Update 2 because of the integration with Veeam backup repositories (and now also cloud repositories), so it cannot be released before said update.

Since the agent is more "ready" it should release sooner as I know I am waiting on this to move away from Symantec. Considering the current beta works with Update 1 I don't see why it needs to wait for Update 2? Unless there are new enhancements but if working now why not release it when ready.

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, VAW 2.0 GA won’t work with 9.5 U1 due the internal communication logic enhancements.
