Updating Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager

Over the life cycle of a Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager version, Veeam Software releases updates — cumulative patches containing bug fixes, performance enhancements, and new features. When you update Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, you apply a cumulative patch to it (as opposed to product upgrade, which is moving between major release versions).

Before You Begin

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

  • Make sure you have Enterprise Manager 12.0 or later 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.
