Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes


               New Features
               The following is a list of new features introduced in version 5.0.2:
                   •    Internet access from virtual lab. SureBackup virtual labs now provide an optional
                        internet access from fenced-off environment. This enables using On-Demand
                        Sandbox for additional use cases, such as more streamlined patch or software
                        upgrade testing. Internet access is disabled by default, and must be configured
                        through new registry parameters on the Veeam B&R server.
                   •    Automated retention for removed and deleted VMs. Data belonging to removed
                        or deleted VMs will now be automatically cleaned up from backup files according to
                        new UI retention setting in days. Previously, it was necessary to remove such VMs
                        from backup manually to explicitly confirm that VM data is no longer needed.
                   •    Optional catalog import. Guest file system catalog import was made optional to
                        reduce the time required to import backup in cases when importing catalog data is
                        not required. The corresponding option has been added to the Import Backup dialog.
                   •    Date Modified attribute preservation. Instant file level restore for Microsoft
                        Windows guests now preserves Date Modified attribute on all restored files.
                   •    Microsoft Windows Storage Server support. You can now install backup server and
                        Enterprise Manager servers directly on your Microsoft Windows Storage Server.
               The following is a list of new features introduced in version 5.0.1:
                   •    Distributed Virtual Switches (DVS) support. Veeam Backup & Replication now
                        supports configuring virtual labs in virtual environments with DVS.
                   •    Improved virtual lab auto-configuration logic. Automatic virtual lab networking
                        configuration now supports more scenarios and should work more reliably.
                   •    SQL Server Role. New SQL Server role and corresponding application verification
                        script was added to SureBackup roles.
                   •    Automatic failover for Veeam Backup server. Attempting to backup Veeam Backup
                        server in Virtual Appliance mode now automatically fails over the job to Network
                        mode for Veeam Backup VM.
                   •    Multi-OS File Level Restore DHCP requirement removed. FLR helper appliance no
                        longer requires DHCP to be present in the environment, and can be configured to use
                        static IP address instead.
                   •    Multi-OS File Level Restore via FTP. FTP server can now be optionally enabled on
                        FLR helper appliance for scenarios when faster bulk recovery of thousands of guest
                        files is needed. This functionality also enables self-user restores capabilities.




                                                                                                              Page | 2

               Resolved Issues
               The following is a list of issues resolved in version 5.0.2:
               General
                   •     Windows Storage Server is not supported for backup server and Enterprise Manager
                         servers.
               Backup and Replication
                   •     Failed or terminated transformation of previous full backup chain causes the
                         following transform attempts to fail with the “Patch failed” error.
                   •     Backup job fails with the “There is an item with the specified name and another type”
                         error.
                   •     Backup job fails with the “Failed                to   execute   stored   procedure.   Name:
                         [[Backup.Model.DeleteBackup]]” error.
                   •     Replication job fails with the “Index was outside the bounds of the array” error.
                   •     Replication job fails with the “Failed to parse "" “ error.
                   •     Replication job fails with the “Cannot delete nvram” error
                   •     Virtual Appliance mode jobs fail with the “Unknown transport type” when “Encrypt
                         LAN traffic” option is enabled.
                   •     Running multiple jobs on continuous schedule may cause the jobs to crash with the
                         “Failed unexpectedly” error.
               Application-aware image processing

                   •     Failover to network less operation should now be performed more reliably in
                         scenarios when network connection to processed guest can be established, but other
                         reasons still prevent network based operation.
                   •     Under rare circumstances, application-aware processing failure may cause the job to
                         hang forever.
                   •     Guest agent fails to start with “The process cannot access the file because it is being used

                   •     Microsoft SQL Server log truncation does not work for default SQL instances.
               Guest file system indexing

                   •     Under rare circumstances, guest file system indexing process may hang causing the
                         job to hang waiting for indexing to complete.
               SureBackup
                   •     Period is incorrectly restricted as allowed symbol in a virtual switch name.
                   •     Enterprise Manager wizards on Requests page may not show a list of available
                         backups, preventing virtual lab request approval.
               Restore
                   •     Importing backups made on backup server with some non-English locales may fail
                         with the “String was not recognized as a valid DateTime. Unknown VBK format” error
               User interface

                   •     User interface can become irresponsive for extended periods of time when selecting
                         certain management tree nodes, such as Backups or Replicas.
                   •     “Remove excluded disks from VM configuration” checkbox state cannot be changed
                         for replication jobs.
                   •      “Remove from replicas” command fails with the “This backup file is locked by job, and
                         cannot be deleted.” when failover is active.
                   •     Automatic backup integrity checks are performed during each job run, ignoring a
                         value of the corresponding checkbox.




                                                                                                                        Page | 3
April 11, 2011 build version 5.0.2.230
Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes

               The following is a list of issues resolved in version 5.0.1:
               Backup and Replication
                   •    Veeam Backup server cannot backup itself in any processing mode.
                   •    Windows 2008 server with Veeam Backup & Replication installed hangs for extended
                        periods of time during OS boot up.
                   •    Failed or terminated Virtual Appliance mode jobs may leave the drive mounted inside
                        the backup VM, which prevents correct snapshot removal.
                   •    Renaming processed VMs may result in backup job failing with the “Last backup must
                        be full, oibid {GUID}” error.
                   •    Database owner (dbo) rights on Veeam Backup configuration database were not
                        sufficient due to xp_regread procedure use by logging component.
                   •    Retry operation does not handle failed synthetic backup processing correctly in the
                        incremental backup mode.
                   •    Synthetic full backup transform operation does not start if last retry operation was
                        started on the next day after backup job was started.
                   •    Backup file statistics is not updated after synthetic full backup transform.
                   •    Backup job with “WAN” storage optimization mode fails when backup file size reaches
                        2.2TB with the “Banks pool is full” error.
                   •    Replication job may fail with the “AddThinDiskToVm failed.Cannot complete the
                        operation because the file or folder already exists” error.
                   •    Replication of thin disks fails with the “Required disk size differ from the actual” error
                        if thin disk size is not a multiple of 1KB. Such disk can only be replicated as thick.
                   •    Starting jobs from command line leaves Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe running after
                        the job completes. This can result in multiple Veeam.Backup.Manager.exe processes
                        appearing and persisting until Veeam Backup server is rebooted.
                   •    Email reports are not being sent to global email notification recipients (super
                        administrators) specified under Tools > Options when job-specific email notifications
                        list is disabled under Advanced job settings.
                   •    Backup job running in reversed incremental backup mode fails with “Failed to execute
                        stored procedure” error if retention policy set to 1.
                   •    Under rare circumstance, backup job may fail with the “There is no FIB [summary.xml]
                        in the specified restore point” error.
                   •    backupJobResult field in SNMP notifications always contains string "None" regardless
                        of the actual job outcome.
                   •    A number of enhancements and fixes in backup import functionality.
                   •    Processing virtual machine with special characters in its name or backup file path fails
                        with the “XML parsing: illegal name character” error.
                   •    Job session results do not report automatic failover from Virtual Appliance to Network
                        processing mode.
               Application-aware image processing
                   •    Guest processing fails with “No such host is known” or “The requested name is valid, but
                        no data of the requested type was found” if DNS is configured incorrectly or is missing
                        reverse lookup zone.
                   •    Guest processing agent crashes when attempting to truncate logs on Microsoft SQL
                        Server 2000 (or MSDE 2000).
               SureBackup
                   •    Virtual lab creation fails on ESX hosts that are a part of cluster with VMware DRS
                        turned off due to inability to create resource pool.
                   •    Virtual lab may not be configured correctly when production network is connected to
                        DVS (distributed virtual switch) on ESX(i) host virtual lab is created on. It is
                        recommended to use ESX host with standard virtual switch until this issue is resolved
                        in future update.


                                                                                                                     Page | 4
April 11, 2011 build version 5.0.2.230
Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes

                   •    Recovery verification may fail for Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7 VMs using
                        VMXNET3 adaptor and static IP address due to guest network adaptor resetting to
                        DHCP. For more information, refer to VMware support KB article 1020078.
                   •    In some cases, SureBackup jobs are unable to reach virtual lab VMs due to using proxy
                        server specified in the Internet Explorer settings.
                   •    If source VM has CPU reservation settings set, and this reservation exceeds virtual lab
                        ESX limit, the VM will fail to start during SureBackup job.
               Multi-OS file level restore
                   •    Restore points are sorted from oldest to newest, instead of showing most recent first.
                   •    Backup explorer cannot browse through ext4 guest file system.
               Search
                   •    Search Server 2008 installed on Windows OS with non-English locale may fail to
                        return search results for certain VMs.
               User interface
                   •    Size of VMs with thin disks is calculated using provisioned storage versus used
                        storage versus on virtual machine selection wizard step, and for Check Space
                        functionality.
                   •    Under certain circumstances, clicking the Jobs node fails with the "Index was outside
                        the bounds of the array. (System.IndexOutOfRangeException)" error.
                   •    Incorrect or corrupted Veeam Backup configuration results in the "Specified cast is not
                        valid" error when opening Veeam Backup user interface.
                   •    Multiple concurrent user access to Veeam Backup console is restricted, while this was
                        possible to do with v4 (although this was not supported). Registry key was added that
                        enables v4 style behavior, however its use is not recommended. Contact support for
                        more information and to obtain the registry key.
               Upgrade
                   •    Synthetic full backup transform operation fails with “Value cannot be null” error on v4
                        backup job which had its backup mode changed (against recommendations).
                   •    Importing backups with some restore points produced with previous version (before
                        upgrade) does not pick up restore points created before upgrade.




                                                                                                                  Page | 5

               Backup can be performed to the following targets:
                    •   Storage Area Network devices (Veeam Backup server must be connected directly into
                        SAN fabric via HBA or software iSCSI initiator, and the corresponding volumes must
                        be seen in the Microsoft Windows Disk Management snap-in).
                    •   Network Attached Storage devices able to represent itself as CIFS (direct operation) or
                        NFS share (storage must be mounted on ESX host, or Linux server).
                    •   Direct Attached Storage connected to Veeam Backup server, including USB drives.
                    •   Any x86/x64 Windows or Linux based computer (or ESX host) meeting the following
                        minimum system requirements below:
                        Hardware
                        CPU: x86/x64 processor.
                        Memory: according to OS requirements.
                        Hard Disk: Using faster local storage (fast high-RPM hard drives, striped RAID

April 11, 2011 build version 5.0.2.230
Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes


               Known Issues
               General
                   •     Processing of vSphere Fault-Tolerant (FT) VMs is not supported.
                   •     IDE VM disks are not supported for disk exclusion functionality.
                   •     “VM Copy” jobs do not support disk exclusions functionality.
                   •     Only "Password" authentication method is supported for Linux servers added to
                         Veeam Backup console.
               Backup and Replication
                   •     VMware Tools quiescence is not supported for Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7
                         running on ESX(i) 4.1 hosts. To work around this, enable application-aware processing
                         in the Veeam job settings to leverage Veeam VSS integration.
                   •     Virtualized Veeam Backup server using Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator for iSCSI
                         storage access may crash or reset while running VMware vStorage API “SAN” mode
                         job due to interoperability issues with iSCSI Initiator. To avoid the issue, use Windows
                         2008 or later for Veeam Backup VM, or create Veeam Backup VM with IDE virtual disks.
                   •     Due to NFS implementation specifics on certain NFS storage, job may fail with
                         rollback file deletion errors. Despite the error status, backups and replicas are created
                         successfully, and required VRB files are deleted properly according to the retention
                         policy. If you are experiencing this issue, please contact Veeam support to obtain
                         registry mod enabling jobs to ignore this error.
                   •     Replication job with ESXi target starts failing with “An attempt was made to access the
                         data beyond the end of the virtual disk” error after source VM disk size is increased. To
                         work around this issue, remove replica VM, and re-create the replication job after
                         making changes to source VM disk size.
                   •     Sending SNMP traps fails with “Unknown entity parameter” error when receiver server
                         is specified using DNS name. To work around this issue, use IP address instead.
                   •     Changing replica processing mode by adjusting target ESX data transfer engine
                         (agent-based / agentless) is not supported.
               Restore and Failover
                   •     If a replicated VM is started using means other than Veeam Backup user interface, all
                         existing restore points become unusable.
                   •     Initiating multiple concurrent operations (failover, undo failover, restore guest files)
                         against replica VMs located on ESXi server is not recommended due to ESXi open
                         connections limit. The connections limit has been increased significantly in ESX(i) 4.1
                   •     VM that were connected to DVS (distributed virtual switch) require manual VLAN
                         settings adjustment upon restore or failover.
                   •     Restoring VM with non-standard disk sizes (such as converted from VMware
                         Workstation or VMware Server) as thin may fail. To work around this issue, restore
                         disks as thick.
                   •     Restore and replication of VMs from ESX 4.x to earlier versions of ESX is not supported
                         due to incompatible virtual hardware versions.
               Native File Level Restore
                   •     Backup Browser may show different drive letters than in the actual VM.
                   •     File level restore may fail if a restored VM is lacking free space.
                   •     Dynamic disks support is limited. Only first partition on dynamic disk is visible during
                         file level restore. To work around this, use multi-OS file level restore instead.
                   •     MBR disk partition table is required for file-level restore, GPT disks are not supported.

               Multi-OS File Level Restore
                   •     Legacy Logical Volume Manager version 1 (LVM1) volumes are not supported.



                                                                                                                     Page | 9
April 11, 2011 build version 5.0.2.230
Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes

                   •   Encrypted LVM volumes are not supported.
                   •   Spanned, striped, RAID5 dynamic disks are not supported.
                   •   MBR disk partition table is required for file-level restore, GPT disks are not supported.
                   •   Non-standard file system configurations support is limited (for example,
                       configurations when file system journal is located on another volume, separately from
                       actual file system are only supported for ext3 file system, but not for other file
                       systems).
               Application-aware image processing
                   •   Connection-less operation with Microsoft Windows versions having UAC enabled
                       (Vista or later) requires that Local Administrator (MACHINE\Administrator) or Domain
                       Administrator (DOMAIN\Administrator) account is provided on Guest Processing step.
               Virtual Appliance mode
                   •   Virtualized Veeam Backup server cannot be used to backup, replicate or copy itself in
                       virtual appliance mode. Jobs configured to do this will automatically failover to
                       Network processing mode.
                   •   Virtual Appliance mode fails with the insufficient disk space error if ESX datastore
                       hosting Veeam Backup VM has less free space than biggest processed virtual disk.
                   •   Virtual Appliance mode fails if ESX datastore hosting Veeam Backup VM has different
                       VMFS block size than datastore where backed up virtual disk is located.
                   •   Virtual Appliance mode does not support processing VMs with IDE virtual disks.
               vPower NFS
                   •   Using volume root (e.g. D:\) as vPower NFS root folder is not supported. To
                       workaround, create and use path with at least one subfolder (e.g. D:\NFS).
               SureBackup
                   •   Automatic virtual lab configuration is not supported for networks with non-private
                       network addresses.
                   •   Automatic virtual lab networking configuration process may fail with the “Unable to
                       resolve default network settings” error. To work around this issue, go back in the wizard
                       and try again.
                   •   Automatic virtual lab networking configuration may fail in some case when DVS are
                       present in virtual environment. In such cases, use advanced configuration mode to
                       configure virtual lab networking manually.
                   •   SureBackup job fails on VM with unsupported or excluded virtual disks which were
                       not explicitly set to be removed from configuration (as a part of disk exclusion
                       settings in the backup job), because test VM cannot find its disks and is unable to
                       start.
                   •   Automatic physical mode RDM disk exclusion in the backup job may lead to situation
                       when test VM is able to connect RDM disk, and produce irreversible changes on the
                       disk. To avoid this, always exclude physical RDM disk from backup job explicitly,
                       selecting the option to remove the excluded disks from configuration.
               Globalization
                   •   Non-latin characters are not supported in the product’s installation path; in the
                       backup target path; in the Veeam Backup and FastSCP service account name; in the
                       source or destination path of SSH-enabled file copy operations; in virtual machine
                       properties; in VM file and folder names for multi-OS file level restore wizard.
                   •   A few UI controls may appear misplaced when Veeam Backup is installed on eastern
                       locales. This issue does not affect product’s functionality.
               Upgrade
                   •   Changing backup mode for existing v4 jobs is not recommended. If you want to use
                       new backup mode, please create the new job instead.
                   •   Some PowerShell SDK commands have been updated to reflect new functionality.
                       Existing PowerShell scripts may need to be adjusted before they can be used with v5.



                                                                                                                   Page | 10

               Veeam Backup & Replication Search Server
               If you want to be able to search for guest OS files of backed up VMs in the Enterprise Manager,
               install Microsoft Search Server and apply Veeam Search Server integration components. You
               can have more than one Search Server in your environment depending on amount of virtual
               machines with indexing enabled.
               Note that you do not need to install Search Server in order to be able to simply browse guest
               OS file system of specific restore points in the Enterprise Manager.


               It is recommended that you install Microsoft Search Server on a separate computer.

               To install Microsoft Search Server:
                   1.   Download the 32-bit or 64-bit package of the Microsoft Search Server. To download
                        free version of Microsoft Search Server, use the following links:
                        Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express Edition: x86 package, x64 package
                        Microsoft Search Server 2010 Express Edition: x64 package.
                   2.   Install Microsoft Search Server using the default settings. At the end of installation,
                        select the checkbox to launch SharePoint configuration wizard.
                   3.   Go through the SharePoint configuration wizard, accepting the default settings.
                   4.   Go to the Start menu, locate link to Search Server Administration page and launch it.
                        Make sure the account specified under Default content access account has Read
                        access rights to the catalog share on your Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server,
                        as well as NTFS permissions on the folder backing this share.
               To install Veeam Backup Microsoft Search Server Integration:
                   1.   Run the Veeam_Backup_Search_Setup.exe setup file.
                   2.   Accept the terms of License Agreement to install the product.
                   3.   Specify the installation folder.
                   4.   For service account, specify any account who is Local Administrator on this computer.
               To add newly installed Search Server to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager:
                   1.   Open Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise Manager user interface.
                   2.   Open Configuration section, select Search Servers tab, and add the newly installed
                        search server there. Note that you cannot add the same Search Server to more than
                        one Enterprise Manager server.
                   3.   Give the Search Server some time to crawl catalog, and use the Files tab in the
                        Enterprise Manager web UI to test search for guest files. Make sure you have
                        performed backup of at least one VM with guest indexing option enabled.

Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0.2 | Release Notes


               Licensing
               Veeam Backup is licensed per CPU Socket ("CPU Sockets") for each Managed Server. Managed
               Server is defined as VMware ESX(i) server that is backed up, recovered, collected data from or
               otherwise managed by the software. For more information, see
               http://www.veeam.com/eula.html.
               The trial license key is sent to you after registering the product with Veeam Software at:
               http://www.veeam.com/vmware-esx-backup/download.html. After registering the product
               you will receive a trial license key. The trial license is valid for 30 days from the moment of
               registration.
               To obtain a full license key for the                desired   number     of   sockets,   refer   to
               http://www.veeam.com/buy-end-user.html
               The full license includes a one-year maintenance plan. To renew your maintenance plan,
               please contact Veeam customer support at: support@veeam.com.


               Updating Veeam Backup & Replication License
               Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication 5.0, license is managed centrally by Enterprise
               Manager server. You should not update license on individual backup servers directly, as

                   1.   Open Configuration > Licensing tab in Enterprise Manager UI, and click Change

                        license. To learn more, see the Licensing section.
                   3.   The provided license file will be automatically propagated and applied to all Veeam
                        Backup servers connected to this Enterprise Manager server.
               To install the new license file to a standalone backup server that is not connected to Enterprise
               Manager server:
                   1.   Select Help > License Information... from the main menu.
                   2.   Click the Install license button to browse to the license file (.lic) that was sent to you
                        after registration to install the license. To learn more, see the Licensing section.
