Enabling new v7 features after upgrade

Post by PaulNSW » Aug 19, 2013 10:08 am

I've been reading a few posts and it is mentioned a few times that on an upgrade from v6.5 to v7, some features are not enabled. The two I see mentioned are the parallel disk processing and the new compression.

Where can I enabled these functions?

Are there any more default v7 options that are not applied on an upgrade, that would normally be configured automatically on a fresh install?

Thanks!

Have you had a chance to take a look at corresponding section of User Guide called “After you upgrade” (p.147)?
• During upgrade to Veeam Backup & Replication 7.0, backup files and VM replicas that were created with 6.x are not impacted in any way.
• Compression levels configured for 6.x jobs will be preserved. However, consider that compression level named Optimal in version 6.5 will be renamed and appear as High after the upgrade.
• The Use storage snapshots option will be disabled for all backup and replication jobs.
• After the upgrade, the Enable parallel processing option in Veeam Backup & Replication options is turned off.
• Credentials Manager will be populated with credentials that were used for connecting to virtual infrastructure servers, Windows servers, Linux servers and credentials used for guest processing.
The parallel processing can be enabled by going to the main product menu > Options > Advanced tab. Job's compression level can be changed by going into the job settings > Storage step > click Advanced > Compression tab. The use of storage snapshots can be enabled by going to job settings > Storage step > click Advanced > Storage Integration tab.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Furthermore, there is a documentation area on our web site where you can find any document regarding VB&R you need to. Thanks.
