Upgrading Plug-In

In this article

    If you want to upgrade your AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication to a new version, you do not have to uninstall the previous plug-in version. You only need to upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication as described in the Upgrading Veeam Backup & Replication section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide. During the installation process, Veeam Backup & Replication will detect the previous plug-in version and will upgrade it. For the compatibility table of Veeam Backup & Replication and AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication versions, see System Requirements.

    After you upgrade AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, you must also upgrade your appliances in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. For more information on how to upgrade appliances, see Upgrading Appliances.

    Note

    Mind the following:

    • If a Veeam Backup for AWS appliance is already added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, and if the version of Veeam Updater is 2.0.0.499 or later, you will not be able to upgrade Veeam Backup for AWS to the next version in the Veeam Updater UI. Instead, upgrade Veeam Backup for AWS in the Veeam Backup & Replication console as described in the Upgrading Appliance section.
    • When you upgrade Veeam Backup for AWS, the plug-in checks the permissions of the Default Backup Restore IAM role of the AWS account and grants all the required permissions.
