Every time you connect to the backup server locally or remotely, the console checks for updates. If the backup server has a patch or updates installed, the console will be updated automatically.
Mind the following limitations:
- Upgrade to another Veeam Backup & Replication major product version is not supported. If you upgrade Veeam Backup & Replication to another major version, you must upgrade the console to the same version manually.
- Downgrade of the console is not supported. If the console is of a higher version than the backup server (for example, you have upgraded the console manually), the connection to the server will fail.
- Automatic upgrade is not supported for Preview, Beta or RTM versions of Veeam Backup & Replication.
If other Veeam Backup & Replication components, such as Veeam Cloud Connect Portal or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, are installed on the machine where the console runs, these components will also be upgraded.
