Patch 3 for Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 released

Patch 3 for Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 released

About a week ago Veeam released a new patch for Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 (build number: 6.5.0.144).
Currently there is no KB page (yet) but you can gain the patch by opening a support case and the patch will be provided using their support FTP.

This patch contains no big chances, just some resolved issues.

UPDATE: The KB page is now live; http://www.veeam.com/kb1751.

General

  • Application-aware image processing may cause Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller to stop booting if virtual machine is configured to use EFI.
  • File level recovery process hangs on dynamic disks with partitions size being multiple of 4GB.
  • Re-IP fails for replicas if host where replica VM was originally created is deleted from the cluster.
  • Disabled ability to move folders in the Files tree with Shift + drag and drop operation because this functionality was not implemented and may result in data loss if the move process is cancelled.

VMware

  • Adding virtual disks that were originally excluded back to the job results in wrong change ID used during the first incremental backup.
  • Upgrading vCenter or ESX(i) hosts may results in duplicate hosts appearing under Managed Servers, causing jobs to fail with object not found errors.
  • VM Copy job always logs the following warning when the target is another VMFS datastore: “Could not perform threshold check for backup location.”
  • Deleting temporary VM snapshot manually instead of letting the job delete it results in vCenter connection duplication. As the result, vCenter Server may stop responding due to too many connections already opened with the following error: 503 Service Unavailable
  • Under certain circumstances, additional registry processing required for SureBackup jobs and re-IP addressing may cause registry corruption with VM failing to boot with the following error: “System hive error либо Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM”
  • If vCenter Server is registered with Backup Infrastructure twice (as vCenter Server, and as a Windows server), replica seeding and backup mapping fails with the following error: “Cannot find VM in the backup file specified for seeding.”
  • Improved performance of enumerating infrastructure objects in large vSphere deployments.

Hyper-V

  • Changed block tracking (CBT) driver does not monitor newly appearing virtual disks on volumes that were in redirected access mode at the time when CBT driver starts. This results in full scan incremental runs for the affected virtual disks with the following warning: “Failed to flush change tracking data before snapshot.”
  • Adding virtual disk files located on volumes mounted into the folder under changed block tracking fails with the following error: “The device object parameter is either not a valid device object or is not attached to the volume specified by the file name.”
  • Instant VM Recovery fails if virtual disk files are located on a mount point.
  • Copying very large files from Windows Server 2012 CSV volume may consume lots of host memory.
  • Under rare circumstances, backup file update may fail with the following error: “Failed to store all blob data at the metastore.”

Veeam Explorer for Exchange

  • Exporting a very large amount of individual items may use up all available system memory.

PowerShell

  • Start-VBRInstantVMRecovery cmdlet fails with the following error: “Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password.”
