Update Notification

Veeam Backup & Replication automatically notifies you about updates that must or can be installed to enhance your work experience with the product. Update notifications eliminate the risk of using out-of-date components in the backup infrastructure or missing critical updates that can have a negative impact on data protection and disaster recovery tasks.

Veeam Backup & Replication notifies about the product updates: new patches and product versions.

The update notifications are enabled by default. If you do not want to get notified about available updates, you can disable them. For more information, see Specifying Other Notification Settings.

However, it is recommended that you leave update notifications enabled not to miss critical updates and patches.

How Update Notification Works

To check for updates, Veeam Backup & Replication uses a special XML file on the Veeam Update Notification Server (dev.veeam.com). The XML file contains information about the most up-to-date product version and patches.

Veeam Backup & Replication downloads an XML file from the Veeam Update Notification Server once a week. It also collects information about the installed product. The collected information is compared with the information in the downloaded file. If new product versions, patches and updates are available, Veeam Backup & Replication informs you about them.

Update Notification Note:

Make sure that the backup server is connected to the Internet and update notification is enabled in Veeam Backup & Replication options. In the opposite case, update notification will not function.
