Windows 10 May / 1903 Support

Post by QuadrI » May 02, 2019 4:47 pm 1 person likes this post

Hello, Windows 10 1903 has been published to MSDN for developers: https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft ... e-on-msdn/

Can you please take a look and start working on support for Veeam Agent for Windows?

The Veeam update for full compatibility with the Windows October Update took so long (months!), and this is a great chance for you to get ahead for a more timely update.

Strong agreement with this. As a matter of act, I pointed it out on Reddit recently. Veeam is a SaaS product that runs on a SaaS OS but somehow has a traditional "gold release" update cadence, which is nonsensical. Windows Insider Builds are available well ahead of release, which means Veeam should be able to deliver updates at the same time Windows builds hit the release ring.

Hi folks,

Support for the latest Windows 10 1903 is planned for the next minor release of Veeam Agent for Windows. Cheers!

Thanks! Just a reminder that the support itself is not the issue here; rather the timing of its arrival is. Since Insider builds are publicly available, Veeam should support Windows builds before they hit release, not month(s) after.

We monitor and test all insiders builds, but, unfortunately these are not actual release builds. We cannot completely rely on the quality of the insiders builds as products must be tested against actual GA versions as we want to provide customers with stable solution.

Any ETA on a release date yet for this "minor update"? 1903 has been out for several days now.
Days? Weeks?

Seems like we should be all set now, see:
Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 3.0
User Guide
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=30
Microsoft Windows 10 (including version 1903)
but it is a little odd that at the bottom right, that article says "Updated on 5/6/2019"

I wrote a brief article up about Veeam Agent for Windows 3.0.1 and Windows 10 1903 testing in my new post here:
Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows now supports Microsoft Windows 10 May 2019 Update, version 1903
https://TinkerTry.com/veeam-agent-3-wor ... rsion-1903
for those interested in screenshots and more details. Seems to work just fine, but haven't fully tested bare metal restores of Windows 10 version 1903 quite yet, 2TB restores take a while ;).

Ah, I jumped the gun, see Anton Gostev's clarification here:

Thanks Paul. We need to correct our online help because Windows 10 May 2019 Update version 1903 is not actually fully supported yet. It will only be supported by version 3.0.2 to be released next month. Looks like Help Center is the only existing place with this mistake ;) as all other linked documents are correct.

Paul,

Thanks for updating the thread. This information is correct, the official support will be provided with 3.0.2 and the User Guide is about to be fixed. Cheers!

I've also updated my article accordingly (corrected within a few short hours of publication). Thank you Dima, and thank you Veeam!
