Veeam Backup&Replication

Which VDDK libraries version I’m using in Veeam Backup & Replication?

Checking the version is pretty easy: simply open both subfolders of C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\, look for VMware DLLs like vixDiskLib.dll anc check its details, you will see something like this:

Vddk details

If you do not have all the different versions of Veeam at your disposal to check, here is the complete list starting from Veeam 7 Patch 2 (the first supporting vSphere 5.5):

VBR 7.0 p2 (7.0.0.771)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.0 build 614080
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_5_5 = 5.5.0 build 1284542

VBR 7.0 p3 (7.0.0.839)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.0 build 614080
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_5_5 = 5.5.0 build 1284542

VBR 7.0 p4 (7.0.0.871)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.0 build 614080
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_5_5 = 5.5.1 build 1601882

VBR 8.0 (8.0.0.817)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.4 build 1890768
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_5_5 = 5.5.2 build 1890828

VBR 8.0 p1 (8.0.0.917)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.4 build 1890768
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_5_5 = 5.5.2 build 1890828

VBR 8.0 p2 (8.0.0.2021)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x86\vddk_5_0 = 5.0.4 build 1890768
C:\Program Files (x86)\Veeam\Backup Transport\x64\vddk_6_0 = 6.0.0 build 2498720 (used for vSphere 6.0 and 5.5)

UPDATE: Update2 for version 8 introduced VDDK 6.0 that superseeded VDDK 5.5. vSphere 6.0 and 5.5 are now supported by VDDK 6.0. ESXi 5.1 and older are processed using VDDK 5.0.

So, in my example before, in order to avoid the HotAdd bug, you should use at least Veeam Backup & Replication 7.0 Patch 4. And in general, this is another good reason for keeping your Veeam installation always up to date.
