I did not test RTM code just yet. Will let you know as soon as I get a chance to do this.

so only SAN is the option...

Im so afraid that someone will logon on the backup server with SAN and play with Microsoft disk manager..and corrupt the storage..

Can you set read-only access for Veeam Backup server on the SAN side?
Or just make yourself the only user on the Veeam Backup server?

I have updated 50% of our servers to ESX4 update 1, and yesterday we had a 100% good backup of 5TB (200VM's) with no single retry.

Looks fine to me :)
