Veeam FastSCP on ESXi 4.1: “API version on the server does not allow CreateDirectory operation” -> Upgrade to 3.0.3

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/08/13

Last week, I wrote Veeam Backup and Replication on ESXi 4.1: “Input string was not in a correct format.” -> Upgrade to 4.1.2

I was partially wrong in that Veam Backup FastSCP 3.0.2.270 did not work: that the alternative is Veeam Backup and Replication 4.1.2.
Well not completely: Veeam Backup and Replication 4.1.2 works, but a day after they released that 4.1.2 version, they also released Veeam Backup and FastSCP 3.0.3, which works too.
And of course they released it about half a day after I wrote the above post :-)

Since the Veeam mass mail to their existing FastSCP clients has not been sent, the only place to find that version 3.0.3 exists is on their forums.

Version numbers and dates

Version 3.0.2

VeeamShell.exe download
File Version 3.0.2.270
File Date 2010-01-28
Release date 2010-02-09
Announcement mail date 2010-03-17

Version 3.0.3

VeeamShell.exe download
File Version 3.0.3.272
File Date 2010-07-23
Release date 2010-08-05
Announcement mail date n/a

Fixed

For ESXi 4.1 users, the most important thing solved in 3.0.3. is this error message when copying subdirectories to an ESXi 4.1 machine:

—————————
Veeam Backup and FastSCP
—————————
API version on the server does not allow CreateDirectory operation
—————————
OK
—————————

So now you have two choices: the free Veeam Backup and FastSCP 3.0.3, or the paid Veeam Backup and Replication 4.1.2.
The last one allows you to schedule backups, but only if your ESXi box is a non-free license.
