Which version of exchange are you using? if 2007, does Veeam truncate log files?

rmcmillan - you're not alone in experiencing Exchange corruption. Until your post, we weren't sure the Exchange 2013 issue we experienced was related to the CBT issue or not.

We ended up with 2 out of 3 mailbox databases unable to be mounted, restored to a pre-6 backup and made sure not to back it up until we'd turned off CBT. We haven't experienced the corruption issue since then.

We also experienced some SQL Transaction log issues, but didn't require a VM restore for those (hallelujah). We ended up changing the DB recovery model to simple, taking a full SQL database backup, then switching them back to Full recovery. No further corruption / warnings since we turned off CBT.

VMware's got a massive problem on their hands and I wish they'd hurry up and fix it!

Thanks


Hi Benbour,
It was a comment by one of the support team. While my vCenter was rebooting on a separate issue I asked if there was any news. My environment is on hold until they come out with a resolution.

Thanks for your post, I've opened a ticket with Vmware to try to get some answers on where this patch is. I don't "think" I have SQL issues, but will be check that now! :shock:

I am so glad we held off on vSphere 6 for the time being!

It would not qualify for us because ESXi/AD/VCSA and the vCLI (direct-host connection) seem to be at lease partly broken, but this CBT thing is amazing! I thought VMware was so careful this time around!

You think that it is a Veeam B&R 8 Update 2 bug or vSphere 6 bug ?

If you review the topic more carefully, you'll find that the issue is acknowledged by VMware and they are going to fix it in a short term.
