Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 4 was released on Jan 22th.
This article shows how to update Veeam Backup & Replication to Version 9.5 Update 4.


Update Backup & Replication Server

  • Execute Setup.exe from the mounted ISO
  • Select Veeam Veeam Backup & Replication Upgrade
  • If your Backup Server is still running jobs (like SQL Transaction LOG Backup), you will get this message. Wait for completion, stop or disable the running jobs and click on retry.
  • Accept license agreement and click Next.
  • The Setup will list the installed version which will get upgraded.
  • You can provide a new license. In a “normal” update your installed license should be valid.
  • Setup needs the credential of the service account.
  • The previous used SQL instance should be shown. If SQL Server authentication is used, you have to enter the Login ID and password of the SQL User.
  • Confirm the database and the automatic upgrade.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication uses components on remote servers (like Repository Server or VM Proxy Server). These components could be updated manually or automatically after installing the Upgrade. I show the manually update below in this article.
  • The installer will stop the services of Veeam Backup & Replication and starts the Installation.
  • After successful installation all services will be started.

Update Remote Components

  • If you have choosen the manually component update this wizard will be shown after your first login to Veeam Backup & Replication Console
  • Start the Update by clicking on Apply.
  • After all components have been upgraded click on Finish.

Update Backup & Replication Console

  • If you have installed the Console on other systems like your workstation or on a terminal server, you will get the update message at the first login attemp. If you have administrative rights you can start the update directly from here.
  • Just click on Yes and the installation files will be downloaded
  • The Console, all Explorers and Services will be updated
  • After that, click on Finish and start the Console again.
