After upgrading my production vCSA from 6.0 to 6.5 U1d, the “Scan for Updates” always runs in an unknown error. Before the upgrade everything works fine and the upgrade of the vCSA was easy to and finished without any error.
After some research and logfile analyzing I found two solutions.
On Dec 18th Veeam released the Update 3 of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 and Veeam One 9.5.
Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 3 has many new features. I will outline my favorites
- Built-in agent management. Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and Veeam Agent for Linux can now be deployed and managed directly from the Veeam Backup & Replication console, adding support for physical and cloud workloads protection.
- VMDK resize operation will no longer result in resetting CBT data for all virtual machine disks, but rather for the resized disk only.
- Data location tagging. Ensure data sovereignty compliance required by various regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), by tagging production infrastructure and backup infrastructure objects with locations.
