Veeam 6 with vSphere 6.0

Post by er.akashchoudhary » May 02, 2017 12:14 pm

Hi Team,

I was using VEEAM backup and replication 6 application to backup my virtual servers which were running on ESXi 5.1.

Recently, I have upgraded from vSphere 5.1 to vSphere 6.0 and changed the operating system from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2012 R2.

After upgradation of vSphere, my VEEAM tool stopped working.

It says "NFC storage connection is unavailable" which I'm scheduling a backup job.

Is there anything which I can do to backup vSphere 6 based VMs with VEEAM 6 ?

Please guide.

Hi Arvind and welcome to the community!

You should upgrade to Veeam Backup & Replication v8 as it supports vSphere 6 and later.
Please, review the sticky thread of compatibility between vSphere and Veeam B&R.
