vSphere API for guest interaction

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to make sure that I understand this correctly. Vmware got rid of VIX in vmware 6.5 but now the same functionality should be available through the new "vSphere API for guest interaction" and this does not require any change in job settings in Veeam.

Correct, for vSphere 6.5 the switch has been done behind the curtains.

New guest interaction API support. vSphere 6.5 discontinued VIX API that previous Veeam versions leveraged for network-less guest interaction for functionality such as application-aware processing. As part of vSphere 6.5 support effort, we have switched the corresponding functionality to the new vSphere API for guest interaction, so that you can continue using the existing product functionality with vSphere 6.5
