Not quite an answer to the question, but the later version of VCSA 6.5 is based on Photon and the HTML5 UI is actually fairly identical to 6.7. Certainly more featured than the first 6.5 HTML UI. Obviously it works just fine with 9.5u3 so perhaps a handy stepping stone until 6.7 is supported. :)

I was able to get Veeam to work in VA mode after I disabled any Win 7/Server 2008 proxies. I haven't tested on Win 10, but Server 2012 and 2016 worked.

Hmm, that's not good. Can you provide us 6.7 users at least with a hotfix for that bug so that we can have reliable hot-add based backups/replications until a new Veeam release has been published? Unfortunately, I am forced to use ESXi 6.7 because here, I have so fresh hardware where ESXi 6.5Ux crashes instantly; and 6.7 already has gone productively...

Based on the complexity of this fix, most likely we will not be able to provide one as a hot fix.

In your situation, general recommendation is to use Veeam Agents for Windows and Linux until the official vSphere 6.7 support is released as a part of Veeam Backup & Replication Update 3a. Because even if we could provide the hot fix for this particular bug, there's no guarantee there are no other bugs leading to data corruption exist (yet to be found).

Thanks!

So, you suggest that I should switch to Veeam Agents for Windows resp. for Linux instead of Veeam Proxies?

Correct. By coincidence, there's a free 3 months agent subscription promo going right now.

Yes, usually that is correct but in this update (6.5 U2) VMware back ported some features from 6.7. Infact if you do install the update, you won't be able to upgrade to 6.7 GA. That's why I asked if we should wait before upgrading our infrastructure this time round to U2. Maybe VBR 9.5 3a will be able to handle all features.

Hi Julien, there's a separate topic on 6.5 U2 support, please keep an eye on it.

Thank you, without realizing it I find myself on the bleeding edge with the lab setup I've just spun up to test all of this out before deploying it to two data centers. Fixed the problem I was having,

Spoke too soon. Fixed for the linux servers, still broken for the windows ones...

Slightly off topic but in the beta testing did you see any major performance increases?

I've read multiple articles relating to improvements with the NBD

Yeah checking the news in forum daily for anything new since 6.7 was wanted by an pretty big customer against our advice and now they are using backup agents for just the important vm's
