    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.
    2. Use the Missing Updates window to manage updates:
      • To install an update, click the update link. Veeam Backup & Replication will open a webpage with the update description and download link.
      • To ignore the update, select it in the list and click Dismiss. Veeam Backup & Replication will remove the update from the list and will not inform you about it anymore. To ignore all updates, click Dismiss All.
      • To bring the list of updates to its initial state, click Re-Check. Veeam Backup & Replication will display all updates, including those that have been dismissed.
      • To copy update list details, click Copy to Clipboard.
