In the System Requirements section, you can see the compatibility table of Veeam Backup for AWS and AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication versions. To upgrade an appliance to the latest version of Veeam Backup for AWS that is compatible with the current version of AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication, do the following:
- Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
- In the inventory pane, select Managed Servers.
- In the working area, select the Veeam Backup for AWS appliance that you want to upgrade, and click Upgrade appliance on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click the appliance and select Upgrade.
Alternatively, you can edit appliance settings. At the Credentials step of the wizard, Veeam Backup & Replication will prompt you to confirm the appliance upgrade. For more information on how to edit the settings, see Editing Appliance Settings.
