On May 12th Veeam has released the Update 2 for Backup and Replication 9.5
I’ve updated now my home lab and after testing our production site too. The Update runs fine with no errors, all jobs are finishing successful. From my side there is no reason to wait for installing the update.
Veeam had listen to the customers and has included many enhancements (vSAN 6.6; Exchange 2016 CU5; Storage Vendor support) and fixes.

Only 7 Days left to get the old price!
VMware will adjust the prices for all exams by around 12% except the Expert level which gets a big mark up by over 300%.
