Today Veeam has released for everyone the Update 3 of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 In this (small) topic, I share with you how I update Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 to update 3. This is a step-by-step guide.
To follow this guide, you need an up and running Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 infrastructure. To write this guide, I updated from a Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 2 solution which consists of a single server. Another server hosts a Veeam console. To update Veeam to update 3, you need to download it from the Veeam portal:
Update Veeam Backup & Replication
Before updating Veeam Backup & Replication, you have to disable all backup jobs. Open the Veeam console and navigate to the backup jobs. Select them all and right click. Then select Disable.
Ensure that all jobs are disabled before closing the Veeam console.
Next copy the update to your backup server and run it.
On the first screen, just click on Next.
Enable the checkbox Update remote components automatically to update all components during this wizard. Click on Install to deploy the Update 3.
During the update process, Veeam backup all previous installation files. When the progress bar is finished, Veeam is updated. The update process took me almost 25mn.
When the update process is finished, you should get this screen.
Open the Veeam console from the backup server, navigate to jobs, select them all and right click. Select Disable to enable all jobs.
In the below screenshot, you can see one of the new Veeam features: the central management of Veeam Agent for Windows / Linux instance. You can now centralize the backup of physical servers for example. I’ll do a topic about that later.
Update Veeam Backup & Replication console
If like in my environment you have a server dedicated to remote management, you have to update the Veeam console installed on it. The process is easy, open the Veeam console and connect to the Veeam Backup & Replication server.
The following message is raised: click on Yes to update the Veeam Console. After several minutes, you are connected to Veeam Backup & Replication Update 3.
