Veeam 9.5 and Vcenter migration tool

Veeam Logoby Arzska » Thu Jan 19, 2017 8:09 am

Hi,

I have succesfully used Veeams (I know it is not officially supported) Vcenter migration tool when we have installed new vcentters. I have now situation that we have three veeam servers and we should attach new vcentter and we are using Veeam 9.5 version. The tool seems not be working with the 9.5 version.
When the tool runs "prepareformigration" task, it says "Error: Column 'object_name' does not belong to table. Apparently the tables in SQL database are changed after upgrade? Is it possible to you in Veeam update this tool to support Veeam 9.5?

BR,

Ari

Hi Ari, changes in Veeam B&R databases between releases are pretty common. I will check with the tool authors on whether it is possible to update it to the new version.

That would be great! Because now we are "on hold" with the Vcenter migration. Hoping to hear from you soon!

It is planned to add Veeam B&R v9.5 and vSphere 6.5 support to this tool, though I do not have any ETA.

Hmm I got caught out with this too. I acknowledge it is an unsupported tool but nothing in the docs says what versions of VC or Veeam it supports. I now have to move all my hosts and vms back to the old VC. A ETA would be really helpfull

Us too. We need the tool to migrate to v6.5 with a clean install of vCenter. Until then we will have to wait.

now that U1 is officially released, does the migration tool also support vcenter 6.5?

Not yet, it will take some time for original developer to modify the algorithm. Thanks.

Any updates? We have moved to a new Vcenter appliance 6.5 with Veeam 9.5 update 1 and found the tool doesn't work.

Not even "about 1 year", "about 6 months" or "within the quarter"?

We need this tool as well in order to move forward.

Well, from what I know I don't expect this will take very long to update for 9.5, probably we are talking weeks?
Vladimir, can you please discuss with the devs responsible to get some rough estimation for planning purposes?

Based on the rough estimations, it should be available within one month.

It's a shame that there is no note regarding 9.5 incompatibilities on the KB2136 page.
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

KB2136 has been updated on 2017-02-01 about being incompatible with vSphere 6.5!
