Azure UltraSSD support

Post by nelsonl »


I am using Veeam backup for Microsoft Azure and looks like it doesn't support backing up UltraSSD, when I try to run the job I get the following error.

Error: Snapshot backup of xxxxxxxxxxxxxx has failed (Snapshots of UltraSSD_LRS disks are not supported.)

I understand UltraSSD is relatively new, just like to know if there is a way around this error or when Veeam will include UltraSSD Support.

I am using:
Server Version:
Worker Version:


Veeam Software

Currently, there is no workaround within VBA as these ultra disks don't support snapshots. If you need to back up data from it, you will have to rely on using the Veeam Agent for Windows.
