Upgrading Appliances

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:

  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select Managed Servers.
  3. 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.


During the upgrade, AWS Plug-in for Veeam Backup & Replication will update permissions only for the Default Backup Restore IAM role on the appliance.
