Upgrading and Uninstalling I/O Filter

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication allows you to upgrade or uninstall I/O filter from clusters using the Veeam Backup & Replication console.


    During upgrading and uninstalling, Veeam Backup & Replication puts hosts into the maintenance mode and, in rare cases, restarts them.

    To upgrade or uninstall the I/O filter:

    1. Make sure that you have disabled all CDP policies as described in the Disabling and Deleting Policies section.
    2. Make sure that you have suspended or powered off all VMs on clusters from which you want to remove the filter.
    3. Follow the instructions provided in the Installing Filters section. At the Clusters step of the wizard, do the following:
    • To upgrade the filter, make sure that check boxes are selected near the necessary clusters.
    • To uninstall the filter, clear the check boxes near the necessary clusters.

    As an alternative, you can uninstall the I/O filter from a specific cluster. To do this, open the Inventory view. In the inventory pane, navigate to the Virtual Infrastructure > VMware vSphere > vCenter Servers > <vCenter Server Name> > <Cluster Name> node and right-click it. Select Uninstall I/O filter.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:


    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
