Step 14. Upgrade to Veeam Backup & Replication 11a

In this article

    It is essential that you upgrade to version 11a every standalone Veeam Backup & Replication server that you plan to connect to Orchestrator. This version contains numerous enhancements and fixes required for the Orchestrator integration. To perform upgrade of Veeam Backup & Replication to version 11a, follow the instructions provided in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Upgrading to Veeam Backup & Replication 11, and in this Veeam KB article.

    After the upgrade process completes, open the Veeam Backup & Replication console on the Orchestrator server to update Veeam Backup & Replication components installed on all managed servers. To perform the update, follow the steps of the Components Update wizard. For more information on updating server components, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, section Server Components Upgrade.

    Tip

    If you want to use the embedded Veeam Backup & Replication server to run backup and replication jobs along with orchestration, create jobs on that server. Orchestrator will discover backups and replicas produced by these jobs and will use them for orchestration plans. To learn how to create jobs using Veeam Backup & Replication, see the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide, sections Creating Backup Jobs and Creating Replication Jobs.
