Veeam Backup & Replication provides support for the following versions of the VMware vSphere platform.
Free ESXi is not supported. Veeam Backup & Replication leverages vSphere and vStorage APIs that are disabled by VMware in free ESXi.
* Veeam Backup & Replication supports this version starting from version 10 with cumulative patch 2 installed. To learn more details about this patch, see this Veeam KB article.
Network shares and mount points targeted to 3rd party storage devices are also skipped as these volumes/disks are not visible in the VM configuration file.
vCloud Director 8.20–10.0
Supported File Systems
DRBD (Distributed Replicated Block Devices) are not supported.
HFS, HFS+ (volumes up to 2 TB)
Micro Focus OES
File-level restore is supported for Micro Focus Open Enterprise Server (Micro Focus OES). Micro Focus NetWare is not supported (Veeam Backup & Replication may fail to detect NSS volumes).
AD-enabled NSS volumes on Open Enterprise Server 2015 are supported. Restore of NSS file/folder permissions is not supported.
Note: Starting from Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4a, restore of NSS trustee rights on files/folders is supported.
The FLR appliance uses module ZFSonLinux version 0.7.0. For this reason, Veeam Backup & Replication supports only those versions of pools and features that are available in ZFSonLinux version 0.7.0.
Consider the following:
- You cannot restore pipes and other file system objects. File-level restore supports recovery of files and folders only.
- [For Microsoft Windows workloads] You can restore files from basic disks and dynamic disks (including simple, mirrored and striped volumes).
- [For Linux workloads] You can restore files from basic disks, Linux LVM (Logical Volume Manager) and ZFS pools. Encrypted LVM volumes are not supported.
Domain names of all managed servers added to the Veeam backup infrastructure and machines you want to back up must be resolvable into IPv4 addresses.
