Definitely not. All product updates, and even new versions are free for customers on maintenance.

When I download update 2 using Chrome browser then the ZIP file consistently reports a crc error when unzipping, downloading with firefox solved the matter but as I've never come across such an issue with Chrome I thought I'd report it here.

Frank, I've just successfully downloaded the update via Chrome browser and had no errors while unzipping it. Anyway, I will let our webteam know abut that. What is your browser version?

Alexander,

my Chrome version is 42.0.2311.90 m

Just tried again & ran winzip 14.5 again to extract resulting in this error:

Extracting to "C:\Scratch\"
Use Path: yes Overlay Files: no
Extracting VeeamBackup&Replication_8.0.0.2021_Update2.exe
CRC check failed

downloading via Firefox & unzipping via the same Winzip program works ok

Is vSphere 6.0 support planned for Veeam 7.0?

No, v7 is in support-only mode (no new functionality will be developed for it).

From Veeam perspective, Update 2b is proven stable after a few weeks of its availability as far as vSphere 6 support. From VMware perspective, they have just released ESXi 6.0.0b and vCenter bits late last week, so I would hold off at least a few days before going with these new bits, as per usual recommended practice of letting someone else run into any potential newly introduced issues ;)

With software is it ever safe? ;)

I bit the bullet and installed vcenter 6 and added ESXI 6.0.0b host to test with. The rest of my hosts are still on 5.5, but everything seems to be working fine. The only issue I had was I forgot to re-add vcenter to Veeam to update the certificate. Plus it fixed an issue I was having with backups intermittently failing when using AD credentials, so I'm happy.
