Upgrade Veeam Backup and Replication V8 to V9

A day before New Year 2016!. We just received a copy of Veeam Backup and Replication V9, therefore we decided give it a try and  upgrade our testing lab environment which running on v8.

[ NOTE:-  Do not ask us about a copy of the installer. It will be available to public soon] Smile
In this post, we are going to share on how easy to perform an upgrade from V8 to V9.

[ Our scenario ]

Veeam Backup and Replication 8.0:  Version

[ Pre-requisite ]
  • Stop / Disable all backup job

  • Install .Net Framework 4.5.2 on Enterprise Manager and Veeam  Backup Server. (included in the setup)
[ Upgrade ]
Insert installer media and perform an in-place upgrade in the following order
a. Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager (if you’ve this component installed)
b. Veeam Backup Server
c. Veeam Backup & Replication Console

[ Upgrade Enterprise Manager Screenshot]

End result:-

[ Upgrade Backup Server Screenshot]

End result after upgrade:
  • Open Veeam Backup and Replication Console
Once console opened, Veeam will upgrade other components (Hyper-V Host, VTL, etc) which has previously connected.

Once components upgraded, you can enable backup job which you’ve disable previously and continue the backup.

That’s all for today. We have completed upgrade Veeam Backup and Replication v8 to v9 without any problem. To learn more about Veeam Backup and Replication V9 new features, please feel free to check out here.

Ebook–Best Practices : Veeam Backup and Replication for Vmware

How does one become an expert in Veeam Backup & Replication? Sure, you can study all of the excellent user guides we have - which are fantastic at explaining all the functionality we have. However, they lack one important thing - real-world best practices on how to best deploy all this functionality. And a team of Veeam Solution Architects have done an incredible amount of work this year to address this.

During VeeamOn 2015, we as Veeam Vanguard received a hardcopy of this book. [Limited Edition]. So far we have enjoying reading it.

2015-12-07 07.52.01

Since it is limited edition, we cannot share this book. However, if you’re interested to read this book. Please feel free to get a hand on ebook from here.

Hope you enjoy reading it. Enjoy!

Missing Storage Account When Configure Protection Group for Protect VMware to Microsoft Azure Using Azure Site Recovery (ASR)


We encountered missing storage account when would like to configure protect vmware to Microsoft Azure using Azure Site Recovery.

  • Configuration Server has deployed (Azure)
  • Master Target has deployed (Azure)
  • Process Server has deployed (on-premise)


[ Solution ]

We need to create Azure Storage depend on Master Target (MT) VM.

  • If create MT using D Series, must create Premium Azure Storage.
  • If create MT using A Series, must create Standard Azure Storage

After created Azure Storage, must set replication to Geo Redundant. Do not set to Locally Redundant.


Lastly, try to create protection again. Now you will be able to see Storage Account when protect a Vmware Virtual Machine to Microsoft Azure using Azure Site Recovery.
