The described procedure applies only to Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service and Veeam VMware Collectors version 8.0.
Starting with vSphere 6.5, the TLS protocol version 1.2 is enabled by default. To allow Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service and Veeam VMware Collectors to connect to vCenter Servers that use the TLS 1.2 protocol, you must update Veeam MP core services on the machine that runs the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service and on all machines that run Veeam VMware Collector services:
- Insert the installation disc into the CD/DVD drive or mount the installation image.
- Navigate to the <installation media>\Update folder.
- Launch VeeamMP80_Update5_Patch1.exe.
- Click Next to start the installation.
