I just started preparation and migration between vCenter 6.0 servers and stumbled upon "Error: Column 'object_name' does not belong to table."
Then I found out this topic...

Please update it:
KB ID: 2136
Products: Veeam Backup & Replication
Version: 8.0.0.2084, 9.x
Same here.

Same here: in https://www.veeam.com/kb2136 is nothing written and only a support case told me that it is incompatible. Now the migration project in which Iam in is on hold as it is not possible to "remap" all VMs. Hope a fix is near :)

Looks strange, as the note regarding tool not support vSphere 6.5 has been there for a while:

Anyway, we're working on this at the moment. Chances are, tool will be enhanced to support vSphere 6.5 in the foreseeable future.

Hi,

you are right, this hint is given, but just clearify, the problem is the Veeam 9.5 DB structure and not vsphere 6.5 for this tool as far as the support told me. So a migration like Aamartin wrote should have worked according to the kb notes, right?

BR,

The tool updates records in Veeam B&R database, in case database structure changes, the tool needs to be updated to reflect the changes.

At least to me, it's more important to have support for B&R 9.5 than vSphere 6.5...

We are migrating to vSphere 6.0 u2 (not 6.5) and planned to use the tool only to realise it doesn't work with Veeam B&R 9.5. Is it supposed to work with 9.5? Is there a manual workaround or support assisted method we can use as unfortunately we cant wait for the tool to be released?

Once it's released, it will support both.

Not, it is not.

You can reach support team and see whether they will be able to provide you with the way to correct product db.

Would be great if this functionality could be merged in to the B&R product. Waiting myself on a 6.5 replacement vcenter with veeam 9.5 already in place.

All, the new version of the vCenter Migration Tool with support B&R 9.5 and vSphere 6.5 has been signed off by QC yesterday. Support already has the new bits, and I assume they will be updating the KB article with the new download soon. Thanks!

I called support yesterday afternoon and tried to get a copy of the tool, and couldn't. I really need this before the weekend. I have 20 TB of backups that are copy-jobbed offsite and I can't start those fresh. Backups aren't running until then.
