Altaro VM Backup Support Centre

Version 7.1 Build 7.1.4

Last Updated: Jun 28, 2017 02:18PM CEST
Warning! This build breaks compatibility with older versions of the Altaro Offsite Server.
If upgrading to this build, you must also upgrade your Altaro Offsite Server.


New Features

  • Increased backup concurrent per Hypervisor. Previously only one Backup and one Offsite Copy could run concurrently on each Hypervisor. This has now been increased to 4 Backups and 1 Offsite copy concurrently which will result in faster overall performance and shorter durations to complete an entire backup schedule.
  • Support for vSphere 6.5 (including vCenter 6.5)
  • Support for the new Unlimited Plus license edition



  • In the restore wizards Altaro VM Backup now only scans for restoreable versions of the selected VMs instead of scanning the entire backup folder. This results in a much faster response which is important when only restoring a few VMs. The user can click on the 'scan' button at the bottom of the screen to scan all backup folders if required.
  • If a restore job is requested it will be given priority in the job queue and will skip all other queued operation types.



  • Fixes an issue where the Abort button in the Altaro Offsite Server could abort the next operation in the list incorrectly.
  • Fixes a rare issue where the Dashboard Charts would not load
  • Fixes issue with failing VSS for Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 VMware guest machines.
  • Fixes a backup issue where offsite servers and client servers are on a different time-zones.
  • Fixes issue where SQL/Exchange logs are not truncated for VMs on Hyper-V 2016.
  • Fixes an issue with drive rotation and UNC paths.
  • Plus other fixes and improvements
