Every time you launch Veeam Backup Free Edition, Veeam Backup Free Edition automatically checks if components installed on managed servers are up to date. If a later version of a component is available, Veeam Backup Free Edition displays the Components Update window and prompts you to upgrade components on managed servers. Components upgrade may be necessary, for example, after you have upgraded the Veeam Backup Free Edition console.
You manually check if components upgrade is required. To do so, select Upgrade from the main menu. If components on all managed servers are up to date, the menu item will be disabled.
To upgrade components on managed servers:
- In the Components Update window, select a server and click Details. Veeam Backup Free Edition will display the current and latest available versions for installed components.
- In the Components Update window, select check boxes next to servers for which you want to upgrade components and click Next.
You can update components on every managed server separately. If components installed on the server require upgrade, Veeam Backup Free Edition displays a warning icon next to the server in the management tree.
To update components for a managed server:
- Open the Files view.
- In the inventory pane, select the VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V node.
- In the working area, select the necessary server and click Upgrade on the ribbon.
Alternatively, you can open the Infrastructure view, select the Managed Servers node in the inventory pane, right-click the necessary server in the working area and select Upgrade.
