Just a FYI but 9.5 RC 1 wont necessarily work with 6.5

Can you open a backup console -> menu -> help -> about, and tell number of build you're running? Thanks.

Yes I am running the update 1 release candidate. When I used 9.5.0.711 the console would instead tell me that it was unsupported when I tried to add a 6.5 host or vCenter. And 9.0.0.1715 would allow me to add a 6.5 vCenter and backup hardware profile 11 VMs but not hardware profile 13 VMs which used the new NVMe controllers in ESXi 6.5.

Then, I'd recommend notifying your support engineer (through whom the update 1 has been originally provided to you) about the experienced issue. The behaviour you've described looks unexpected. Thanks.

Hello Muh, you have probably created a new ‘NVMe’ controller for one of your VM's. This type of controller was introduced in vSphere 6.5.
We know about that bug and it's will be fixed in the upcoming U1 GA version. Now you may switch back all existed disks from that controller to ordinary SCSI one.

Luke,

I can't give you an exact ETA but it is not far away anymore. We have quite some testers and are finalizing some items and from the moment they are finished we will release it. We prefer to have the issues fixed first ;-)

Any update on this? I've just completed a new install of vSphere 6.5 and can't connect to it without update 1.

Hooray! Thank you Veeam for getting this update out so quickly. I was in the vSphere 6.5 Beta program and haven't been able to use Veeam B&R for months. Any chance I can get an extension on my NFR license?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, you can always ask for an extension of your trial/NFR key from your Veeam sales rep.
