Veeam B&R upgrade: 5.0.2 to 6.1 and VMware replication jobs

Post by farge » Sep 18, 2012 10:45 am

Hi all,

sorry if this was already asked before. We are about to perform the upgrade in-place as of subject, by reading the VMware userguide we were under the impression that we wouldn't have had any problem with already existing replication jobs (becoming legacy jobs). Then we noticed the following KB article:
http://www.veeam.com/kb_articles.html/K ... pgrade%206
which seems to be in complete contradiction with our assumptions, which is the truth?

Thanks for your help,
E.

Confused by this article too. Replication jobs that were created with Veeam B&R v5 can be edited and run successfully in v6 (though replicas created with legacy jobs do not support new failover/failback functionality).

I will check with support regarding this KB.
