Updating Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager

Apart from version releases of Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager (for example, 12, 12.1), Veeam Software provides updates (for example, Cumulative Patch P20230223 for version 12, update for version 12.1). Updates contain bug fixes, performance enhancements and introduce new features.

Before You Begin

Before you install a cumulative patch for Enterprise Manager 12, check the following prerequisites:

  • Make sure you have Enterprise Manager 12.1 (build 12.1.x.x) of any earlier patch level installed.

For information on how to upgrade from product version 10a or later, see Upgrading to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager 12.

  • With Enterprise Manager and connected backup servers, remember to begin the update process with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. Backup servers should be updated after that. If you have Veeam Backup & Replication and Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager deployed on the same machine, the update wizard will update both products at once.

For more information on the backup server update procedure and prerequisites, see the Updating Veeam Backup & Replication 12 section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
