Updating Hardened Repository Components

If you use Veeam Backup & Replication 12 prior cumulative patch P20230718 and want to update hardened repository components or remove a hardened repository from the backup infrastructure, make sure that the SSH connection is enabled. Consider that you also need to specify single-use credentials you use to connect to the Linux server and deploy Veeam Data Mover.


The SSH connection is also required for updating hardened repository components in the following situations:

  • If you upgrade from Veeam Backup & Replication 11a or earlier versions to Veeam Backup & Replication 12 including versions with installed cumulative patches.
  • If you upgrade from any previous Veeam Backup & Replication version to Veeam Backup & Replication 12.1 (build

If you need to specify single-use credentials for multiple hardened repositories, you can use the Components Update window or the Set-VBRLinux cmdlet.

If you update Veeam Backup & Replication 12 to any cumulative patch, the SSH connection is not required for updating hardened repository components. For more information about cumulative patches, see this Veeam KB article.
