Plan Type Is Not Supported (code 1406)


A backup plan terminates with the following error: The plan type is not supported. The current edition does not support plans of this type (code 1406).


The occurrence of this error means that the backup plan type is not supported in the installed software edition. Most often it happens with a virtual backup plan (VMware, Hyper-V) execution attempts on desktop editions.


Take a look at the plan type that produced the error, then make sure the installed edition supports it. Read more about editions in the Compare Editions chapter at

In case you need to purchase some additional subscription to make the backup plan executed, learn about it in the Licenses section at
