Microsoft Hyper-V Updates

Veeam Backup & Replication notifies about hypervisor updates that should be installed on Microsoft Hyper-V hosts and off-host backup proxies.

If a Microsoft Hyper-V host or off-host backup proxy added to the backup infrastructure misses important hypervisor fixes and patches that can potentially affect work of Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Backup & Replication displays a warning icon over the host or off-host proxy in the inventory pane.

Installing Updates 

To install updates:

  1. In the Backup Infrastructure view, select a host or off-host backup proxy and click Missing Updates on the ribbon.
