  2. Hi vmwareaddict,
    Alas, I do not see a link on Veeam's website for the version 5 binaries, if you have active support agreement I'd highly recommend you upgrade to v6. If you really need it and have an upload site I might be able to find a copy.
    Cheers!

  3. Hi there,
    I have the same problem as vmwareaddict, I can't get my hands on the U-AIR files for VBR 5.
    If you still have them somewhere and can upload them, it would be very helpful.
    Nice blog btw :)

  4. Hello Xentoo, thank you for the comment.
    For VBR 5 U-AIR's, try the below:

    This should work for a time.
