Challenge


Solution

Starting with Veeam Backup & Replication 8 Update 2 (8.0.0.2030), VMs with Fault Tolerance enabled can be backed up and replicated. Legacy Fault Tolerant VMs must have Fault Tolerance re-enabled after vSphere 6 upgrade using vSphere Web Client to enable this capability.

vSphere 6 includes the ability to snapshot Fault Tolerant VMs through APIs because of this, Veeam Backup & Replication is able to backup and replicate Fault Tolerant VMs – just like any other VMs.


The minimum version requirements for processing virtual machines with Fault Tolerance is:

  • Veeam Backup & Replication 8 Update 2 (8.0.0.2030) or higher
  • VMware vSphere 6

More information

For information regarding Veeam-vSphere version compatibility see KB2443.

Processing of vSphere Fault Tolerant VMs is not supported in conjunction with vSphere 4.x or 5.x.
