Additionally, the latest Veeam.Archiver.Service log file found under C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup365\Logs contains the following:

Under rare circumstances records on backup jobs might be duplicated in a configuration database. This does not affect an already existing installation, yet fails a duplicates check during the upgrade.


Please contact Veeam Technical support for the fix.
