How to get the Partner Preview as a partner?

Post by oliverL » Oct 25, 2017 10:46 am

Since Update 3 is near i wanted to install the new Version in my Lab to see what changed but i can't find any downloadlink, also i need to compare the update-procedure against other Backupsoftware which isn't possible because my LAB is already on update 2...

Even in the Partner Portal there are no Downloads.

Could you please provide me a Downloadlink for the RTM build: 9.5.0.580 (Partner Preview)?

many thx!

Update 3 RTM is not available yet. By the way, the referenced build number is also incorrect - once released, Update 3 will surely have higher number.

So, I'm not sure where you got this information regarding RTM availability and particular build number, could you elaborate?

Members of our Service Provider program will receive an RTM build at least two weeks prior to Update 3 release (standard procedure).

Thanks.

It's RTM build for 9.5, not for 9.5 Update 3:

If you're a member of VCSP program, you should not worry about that, as the RTM build for Update 3 will be provided for you at least two weeks in advance.

Thanks.

You should be able to request it via support ticket, but could you tell me why you need 9.5 GA, instead of 9.5 Update 2 (which has number of bugs fixed, and number of features added)? Thanks.

I need to create a documentation about the gotchas of an Veeam Upgrade Procedure which includes the deployment of Veeam Windows Agents to different Hosts.
I wanted to use the update 3 to have the latest Version for that, but since i can't get a Hand on it i have to use the old updates...

Fortunately i found on our own share the GA version and could already document the Upgrade Procedure to Update 1 and need to see if something changed and if i can just upgrade from GA to Update 2 without any worries.

As for the Veeam Windows Agent i'm using Lab-Installation which is already running Update 2 so that it works with the Windows Agent - but that won't work as described in you KB (opened a new Thread).
