  1. Pretty good info. Just a quick update FYI. Once SP1 is installed for Sharepoint Server and running 6.0.0.181 you will need to upgrade your Sharepoint db's with:

    1. Open an Administrative command prompt.
    2. Change directory to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
    3. Run PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force

    Otherwise the search service will not start and work and Veeam wont be able to connect to the search server.
