Resolved Issues

This hotfix improves how Veeam Backup & Replication 12 manages self-signed certificates used by on-premises object storage when the self-signed certificates have not been manually imported, resolving the following issues: Saving IAM/STS endpoints for a repository fails with the following errors: Failed to find valid gateway server for non-scheduled repository <repo_name>: Unable to verify certificate: certificate host name validation failed Unable to change encryption settings because the object storage repository is unavailable. Ensure the repository is reachable from the backup server and try again. Agent jobs targeting repositories with IAM/STS, including Cloud Connect, fail when tenants have not manually imported the self-signed certificates, leading to the error:A WebException with status TrustFailure was thrown Running VM jobs (IAM/STS and Insecure Direct) in Cloud Connect cases fails with:Amazon S3 Compatible connection has returned an untrusted certificate. Both the Service Provider and their Tenants must install this hotfix to resolve these issues.
