In this tutorial, we will see how to update the Veeam Backup and Replication backup software.
This operation is usually carried out once or twice a year.
Schedule the update operation at a time when no job is in progress (Backup, Backup Copy, Replication …).
Allow 1 to 2 hours to complete Veeam.
The captures made for this tutorial were made during an update of Veeam 9.5u3 to 9.5u4.
- Download the update (complete ISO of Veeam)
- Have a backup of the configuration.
- Disable jobs that might launch during the operation.
1. Mount ISO on Windows.
2. Run the setup.exe file.
The update program should resume after the restart of the computer. Otherwise, you must go up the ISO and run the setup.exe.
Veeam Updates is an easy-to-do routine administration task that requires a little preparation if it performs daytime tasks or if the backup target lasts a long time.
If agents are managed in the console, they may need to be updated and have to restart the servers.
The transition from 9.5u3 to 9.5u4 causes agents to update in version 3, which requires two reboots (installing .Net Framework 4.6 and updating the agent).
