Challenge


Cause

The .vbk file you are trying to import was created with a different version of Veeam Backup & Replication.

Solution

Check whether versions of the Veeam Backup & Replication software match on the server where the .vbk file was made and on the server to which you are importing the backup file. 

More information

The same error occurs if you try to import a replica file, as it is not possible.
