Selected database has one or more unsupporte ESXi or vCenter

Veeam Logoby pidthepiper » Thu Sep 10, 2015 8:55 am

Hi,

I am getting this error when I try to install Veeam v8 on a new 2012 vm and direct it to use the database used by Veeam v6.5

It database is on an external SQL 2008 R2 VM.

I don't get what the error is referring to exactly?

The database is at SQL 2005 (90) compatibility Level, the error comes just after it says it will upgrade the database if needed.

Cheers,

Bilal, the error refers to the fact that the database contains some of the older VI 3.5 servers (ESX(i) 3.5, vCenter 2.5), which were supported in v6.5, however not unsupported in v8. I think if you remove those from v6.5 installation, the upgrade should go fine.

OK there is an ESX 3. host, it has a couple of VMs that I would like to backup, but I get the error "Your Veeam Backup license does not allow the processing of free ESXi."

I have an Enterprise license ? why would this be an issue?

Do you have a paid VMware license covering this ESXi host? Veeam B&R is not allowed to process free ESXi host (the message itself is somewhat confusing).

Well the first time it started installing and then backed out.

After a reboot I got 2 errors while it tried to install the NetApp Plugin and another vendor lugin:
Unable to connect to SQL Server the login failed.

But it finished installing

You can try to repair the installation to see whether the errors persist and contact support i case they do.

Well those plugins dont even matter to me, we run Dell Compellent

Do I have to edit each job and update the credentials ??

Do I have to readd my repositories, as I am unable to find the bit to edit the login details?

Credentials update should not be required in case of upgrade.

Ah, sorry, in case of remote DB you would need to re-enter credentials, right (since they are encrypted with a machine-specific key).

How do I re enter the username/pass for the backup repositories? I click on their properties and I don't see anything regarding logins?
