Veeam Backup for Office 365 1.0 Update 1

Last week Veeam has released the first update for Veeam Backup for Office 365 1.0, the solution to create a local backup for all mailboxes present in Office 365. These are the enhancements and bug fixes introduced:


  • Added a warning when a mailbox is selected which has an invalid Office 365 license
  • The backup fails with the error JET_errTempPathInUse
  • After a restore job, the iSCSI connection to a repository fails with JET_errInstanceUnavailable. The repository now reopens the database correctly
  • After the first of January, 2017, some mailboxes fail to backup with Object reference not set to an instance of an object error. The update also corrects the content of the existing repository databases
  • The configuration database consumes a lot of disk space: Circular logging is now used by default. The Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 service will clear the old non-circular logs on the first start after the update
  • The support ID is now visible in the license information
  • The options dialog is shown incorrectly when a contrast theme is used
  • The System Menu appears at a random place when a non-default DPI is used
  • The headers on dialogs and wizards are too big because you use high DPI
  • When you want to restore items with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange, the Conversation History folder isn’t visible for restore
