My doubt is, and I think Jose was asking the same thing, is step 11 necessary IF I have never expanded vmdks in my environment? Naturally, if I never expanded a vmdk then I am not susceptible to the CBT bug, therefore why do I need to reset the CBT on all VMs during the upgrade process?
Also, I am currently using Veeam 6.5 and have never expanded a vmdk. Once I upgrade to Veeam 8.0 and confirm that its working, I plan on expanding a vmdk on one of my VMs. Will Veeam v8 reset the CBT and do a full scan on the next job automatically? Is this why step 11 is necessary or will the CBT be reset automatically regardless?
Thanks in advance for your patience, I know you guys have been bombarded with CBT bug questions these last few months...
