[MERGED] VBR 9.0 or VBR 9.5 with VMware vCenter 6.5.0

Veeam Logoby Didi7 » Thu Nov 24, 2016 6:46 am

Hello folks,

atm we use 3 VBR 9.0 Update 2 backup servers against a vCenter 5.5.0 Update 3e and intend to switch to a vCenter 6.5.0 server appliance. Hosts are still ESXi 5.5.0 Build 3248547 or ESXi 6.0.0 Build 3620759.

Has anyone made any experiences with a similar environment? Are there any problems, when I use a vCenter 6.5.0 server appliance together with VBR 9.0 Update 2 or VBR 9.5 ?

Should I update to VBR 9.5 before running my backup servers against a vCenter 6.5.0 or should I wait until VBR 9.5 Update 1 before updating to vCenter 6.5.0 and instead use a vCenter 6.0.0 Build 4637290 temporarily?

Any thoughts are very much appreciated.

Regards,
Didi7

[MERGED] VMWare 6.5 and VBR 9.5

Veeam Logoby besofakissen » Thu Nov 24, 2016 7:43 am

Any chance to enable basic backup functions from VBR 9.5 to VMware 6.5? Our hole farm is upgraded and theres no simple way backup.

Additionally Backups worked with VBR 9... is there any way to downgrade from 9.5 to 9?

Cheers

i read this 10 times... we tested simple backup and restore with BVR 9 to and from ESX 6.5 and it worked.

If vsphere 6.5 is not supported, why is it working on VBR 9u2... (Simple Backup and Restore not the hole function lvl)

"not supported" does not necessarily mean that it does not work.

I read many posts here in the forums, there are some people which can do backups of vSphere 6.5 with Veeam v9.5 or v9 and others cannot.

It is very dependent on the infrastructure you have in your company (or at your customer).

If i'm not wrong there is no graceful way of downgrading from v9.5 to v9. That means you have to uninstall Veeam v9.5 completely and install v9 from scratch.
Best regards,
Karl

yes I understand your point. Don't ask me! Thats only official statement.

about downgrade: If you have a 9.0 configuration backup, you can uninstall 9.5, than install 9.0 and restore conf backup.

hi!

We uninstall v 9.5 now and installed v 9 u2 and all workes fine again with vSphere 6.5

So we're waiting for Update 1 to install VBR 9.5

Cheers!

It is advised to wait for VBR 9.5 update 1 as there are major updates in vSphere 6.5.

We do not support vSphere 6.5 with version 9.0 because we cannot guarantee reliability. And while simple backups may indeed appear to continue to work fine, it does not automatically guarantee that they are consistent and restorable.

Dear All,

When Veeam will support ESXi 6.5. Do we have an approximate date?

Running Veeam 9.0.0.1715 against Vcenter 6.5 / ESXi 6.5 with Cluster/HA and non clustered ESXi without any issue. Using Veeam 9.5 fails to connect to Vcenter.

Not sure if it matters but are you running Windows Vcenter or the appliance?
