Step by Step Guide Veeam B&R 10 Upgrade

Two weeks ago, Veeam released Veeam Backup and Replication 10, which contains some significant improvements: NAS Backup support, Data Integration API new feature, Linux Backup proxy support and others… This build is fully supported by Veeam technical support, who is standing by to assist all early adopters. Veeam B&R Update 4b was be the last version 9.5 build. If you missed the launch event, you can watch the recording here. Veeam did a bunch of live demos to show off new v10 capabilitie. You can learn more about Veeam Backup and Replication v10 new features here.

This technical article provides a step by step guide to upgrade Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 4b (build 9.5.4.2866) to Veeam B&R 10 build be version 10.0.0.4461 (Veeam Backup and Replication 10 Upgrade). If you need to upgrade your Veeam Backup Server (v9) you can follow this article.

For those planning to upgrade to v10 soon, here are the two most important pieces of documentation you should read to ensure a smooth upgrade:

  • The Licensing section of the What’s New document. There are a number of changes to be aware of before you upgrade, and without this info, you may be confused with what you’re seeing.
  • The Upgrade Check List section of the Release Notes document. In particular, this answers common upgrade questions on the order of upgrade of different Suite components (Enterprise Manager and Veeam ONE).

For more security:

The first step is to realize a configuration backup of Veeam server (“Configuration Backup” menu on the screenshot below) and SQL database backup. If the Veeam Backup Server is deployed on a Virtual Machine, execute a backup of this VM with Veeam B&R or a snapshot.

Veeam Menu

Disable your backups jobs:

When the backup is done, you can close Veeam software and restart the Windows server (reboot). Basically, I recommend you to stop properly the Veeam services before upgrading (services.msc).

You have to upgrade VEM component before Veeam B&R software.

Post Reboot:

When the upgrade is done, I recommend you to restart properly the Windows server (reboot). Click on “Yes” button.

Once the reboot completes and Veeam B&R software has been opened, you can update all distributed components (especially Mount Server, Transport and vPower NFS) via “BACKUP INFRASTRUCTURE” menu.

Select servers to update and click “Apply” button.

Veeam Wizard

Finally, when all components have been upgraded, you can click on “Finish” button.

Veeam B&R 10 does not require new job creation or any architecture changes for your existing backups and replication to work. If there are dedicated Veeam proxy servers in the environment, now is a good time to upgrade those servers, otherwise, Veeam is now ready to use. Version: 10.0.0.4461.

I recommend you to execute Active Full backup to benefit from the new backup mechanism.

Finally, don’t forget to edit your Virtual Lab (DataLab). Basically, the proxy appliance in v10 needs to be upgraded. Then, try your SureBackup job:
