This applies to versions 5.0 Day 0 Update and earlier down to version 3.0 GA. Version 5.0 Version 4c Version 4b Version 4a Version 4.0 Version 3 You can check your current build number by clicking Help and Support > About in the main menu of the Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 console.


If you are running version 5.0 GA please upgrade to version 5b or wait for the hotfix we are preparing. If you are running version earlier than 4c please upgrade to version 5b or upgrade to version 4c first and install cumulative patch KB4099.
