Challenge

This update is provided to enable upgrading existing installations of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4 RTM (build 9.5.4.2399) to generally available version of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 U4 GA (build 9.5.4.2615). This update addresses a number of issues reported by early adopters on the U4 RTM build.

Solution

The following RTM build issues are addressed with this update:

•    Legacy subscription license grace period bug for licenses with 0 Workstations causes agent jobs to stop working until you install an Instance license.
•    Non-existing VMs specified in advanced job settings cause jobs to fail, when their presence was not an issue in Update 3a.
•    Direct SAN transport fails for vSphere backup proxies installed on certain non-English OS locales due to "special" characters present in the OS temp path.
•    Backup Copy jobs fail to start after data transfer window opens, if their copy period started during the restricted window.
•    Transaction log backup email reports are missing for Windows agent-based log backup jobs Windows.
•    Inoperational RESTful API V1_3 protocol version (API version used in Update 3a). 

Known Issues
