Installing Updates

To download and install new product versions and available package updates, you can use either of the following options:

You can also set a reminder to send update notifications.

Installing Updates

Important

Before you install a product update, make sure all backup policies are disabled and restore tasks are finished. Otherwise, the update process will interrupt running activities, which may result in data loss.

To download and install available product and package updates:

  1. Open the Veeam Backup for AWS Updater page:
  1. Switch to the Configuration page.
  2. Navigate to Support Information.
  3. On the Updates tab, click Check and view updates.
  1. On the Veeam Backup for AWS Updater page, do the following:
  1. In the Updates are available for this system section, select check boxes next to the necessary updates.
  2. In the Choose action section, select the Install updates now option, select the Reboot automatically after install if required check box to allow Veeam Backup for AWS to reboot the backup appliance if needed, and then click Install Updates Now.

Note

The updater may require you to read and accept the Veeam license agreement and the 3rd party components license agreement. If you reject the agreements, you will not be able to continue installation.

Installing Updates 

Veeam Backup for AWS will download and install the updates; the results of the installation process will be displayed on the History tab. Keep in mind that it may take several minutes for the installation process to complete.

Note

When installing product updates, Veeam Backup for AWS restarts all services running on the backup appliance, including the Web UI service. That is why Veeam Backup for AWS will log you out when the update process completes.

Scheduling Update Installation

You can instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to automatically download and install available product versions and package updates on a specific date at a specific time:

  1. On the Veeam Backup for GCP Updater page, in the Updates are available for this system section, select check boxes next to the necessary updates.
  2. In the Choose action section, do the following:
  1. Select the Schedule updates installation option and configure the necessary schedule.

Important

When selecting a date and time when updates must be installed, make sure no backup policies are scheduled to run on the selected time. Otherwise, the update process will interrupt the running activities, which may result in data loss.

  1. Select the Reboot automatically after install if required check box to allow Veeam Backup for AWS to reboot the backup appliance if needed.
  2. Click Schedule Updates.

Installing Updates 

Veeam Backup for AWS will automatically download and install the updates on the selected date at the selected time; the results of the installation process will be displayed on the History tab.

Setting Update Reminder

If you have not decided when to install updates, you can set an update reminder — instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to send an update notification later.

To do that, on the Veeam Backup for AWS Updater page, in the Choose action section, do the following:

  1. Select the Remind me later option and choose when you want to receive the reminder.

If you select the Next Week option, Veeam Backup for AWS will send the reminder next Monday.

  1. Click Remind me later.
