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

End result:-

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.
