Backing up VM under ESXi 4

Post by slicksilver »

I upgraded from ESX 3i to ESX 4i.

When I go to backup a VM it states "Free ESX 4.0 is not supported. Does Veeam v3.1 not support Vshpere 4 as yet ??

Exact Error:
Total VM size: 45.70 GB
Processed size: 3.07 KB
Avg. performance rate: 0 KB/s
Backup mode: agentless

Start time: 30/06/2009 08:25:03
End time: 30/06/2009 08:25:21

Releasing VM files
CreateSnapshot failed, vmRef 16, timeout 1800000, snName "VEEAM BACKUP TEMPORARY SNAPSHOT", snDescription "Please do not delete this snapshot. It is being used by Veeam Backup.", memory False, quiesce True

Looks like Veeam pulled a fast one and no longer support ESXi 4 free version . The statement is in line with VMWARE, so they say.

However as a current ESXi 3 user I was never informed of this and only informed after upgrading.

Did check main Veeam webpage first, which clearly states that they support vSphere, but watch out as they don't support the free version of ESXi 4. Looks like I wont be using these guys again

Amjad, all current users have been informed on their registration email. Are you receiving regular news letters from Veeam? Did you specify valid email address during registration?

System Requirements section of the Release Notes document included with your download also includes this information.

Please follow these links for more information:
[IMPORTANT] vSphere support
Free ESXi and Veeam Backup 3.1
Veeam Backup & Replication will no Longer Support VMware ESXi Free Edition
