Hi,

Could anyone tell me when Veeam Agent 2.0 for Windows is released to GA?

We are currently trailing the beta version but would like to know when the final version is released.

Based on a short test, some feedback and questions. My goal is to back up manager laptops (they are highly mobile), and, if possible, integrate this backup solution with our server backup system.

As others mentioned, central management of agent jobs would be great. But further, creating a new admin role also would be great. I mean, creating a helpdesk role, which can configure workstation jobs, check their status and restore files backed up by these jobs - but cannot reach server backups.

Another question is limiting bandwidth usage. The agent is able to disable backups over a metered connection. I don't know, how it determines if the connection is metered? What if I share the data connection of my mobile phone over WIFI, connect to it with my laptop and establish a VPN connection? Possible this setting could be more fine-grained, such as a) use 20% of bandwidth b) backup will happen even on a metered connection if two backups already failed and c) so on. :wink:

Hi guys,

We just had a Veeam sales agent call us and offer a nice little discount if we purchase Veeam Agent 2.0 before the end of this month. When will 2.0 come out of beta? We need to know ASAP so as to make a decision whether to accept the offer or not as our company policy is not to install beta versions on production machines.

@zmedgyesi

We only see the connection as metered when Windows sees it as metered. So yes, when you share over WiFi or MiFi or similar, your laptop might not see this as metered unless you tell it yourself.

@AlexLeadingEdge

Honestly, I do not know the release date but hopefully @DimaP can give you some more information but I am pretty sure it won't be an exact date.

Hi Mike, I don't need an exact date, just the month would be fine.

Under License Information in VEEAM B&R i have a test license for Windows Agents that will expire on May 1th. What will happen with my Agents? Will they stop working? Is it possible get a new testlicense as we have for the Linux Agents (expiration day August 31th) As soon the Windows Agent is final we will buy it but until the i need to be sure that is still can backup our physical servers and pc's
