Synology Active Backup CAN Restore on ESXi 6.7 Update 1

Back on March 10th, 2019 I posted a blog post ripping Synology for the long delay in updating Active Backup for Business for VMWare ESXi 6.7 Update 1. Well my original criticism still stands about having to wait almost year for 6.7 stands, but I’m happy to announce that version Synology Active Backup for Business 2.0.4-0621 has been released!

Release Notes

The release notes claims that update was released on the 5th, but from my unit there wasn’t any updates available when i wrote the post on the 10th. So needless to say I downloaded the update and tested the functionality.

Successful Restore

Either way, it’s good news because restores work successfully!

Thank you Synology for fixing this issue!
