  • Acronis Backup 9 for VMware


  1. You restore or replicate a virtual machine.
  2. Hardware version is changed to the highest possible depending on the target host, e.g. hardware version 8 is changed to 10 on ESXi 5.5.


This was the product design.


Product design has been changed in Update 2 (build 10535); the original hardware version is kept (if supported by the host). Please update the product.

More information

As workaround you can downgrade the hardware version as described in this VMware KB article.
