Known Issues

• Windows event log and application source were renamed from Veeam Endpoint Backup to Veeam Agent for Windows. Be sure to update all scripts and processes which are triggered by Windows events.

Veeam Backup & Replication Integration
• Veeam Agent for Windows license added to Veeam Backup & Replication console will cause existing Veeam Endpoint Backup 1.5 jobs to fail. To work around this issue, delete the license file from the console (KB2235).
• Restore to the original location via Veeam Enterprise Manager may not work if the original computer and Enterprise Manager server are located in different domains.
