Correcty upgrade 9.5.0.1922 Free to 9.5 Community Edition

Post by darko2019 »

Would You give me direction what to do.
We have Veeam Backup&Replication 9.5 Free for HyperV 9.5.0.1922 installed on HyperV host.
I saw that emerged Veeam Backup&Replication 9.5 Comunity Edition with many more additional functionality.
I would like to update/replace my Veeam Backup&Replication 9.5 Free with Veeam Backup&Replication 9.5 Comunity Edition.
What is the right path ?
I try to update current version with Update 4 would my version be updated to Comunity Edition ?
If not is it secure to remove currently installed Free version on HperV host and install Community Edition ?

Case #03446560

Hi Darko and welcome to the community!

You can update your free VBR 9.5 U3a to Update 4 and it will be Community Edition, since you won't install any license in it. Thanks!

Thanks DGrinev,
but in my case I got VBR 9.5 without any update.
Is it safe to update directly from 9.5.0.1922 with Update 4 ?

You've mentioned build version 9.5.0.1922 which is the Veeam B&R 9.5 Update 3a, so yes, you can update your version with the most recent Update 4.
You can find detailed information about previous versions in the stick thread here.

Thanks!
