Please keep in mind that VBR will propose you to update the Agent to the most recent version which is 3.1, but it's not mandatory for work.

Thanks!

Hi

Plan to upgrade vbr server from U4 to U4a. Connected protection group server are running 3.0.0.748 (Windows) and 3.0.0.865 (Linux). Will U4a require an agent update?

\Masonit
You should definitely be running the latest Agent builds anyway.

I just upgraded to VBR Version 9 update 4a, and about half of my agents are requiring a reboot (with failed backups last night!). Agent versions 2.2+ . What could be the issue?

This is incorrect to some extent...I just updated my VBR server to version 9 update 4a and half of my agents didn't require an update, but they do require a reboot. Is there a reasonable explanation for all of this? Why is it not included in the upgrade checklist in this link https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... u4#upgrade

Hi, We have upgraded Veeam from 4 to 4a. After update we also noticed that all Veeam Windows agents experienced pending reboot state, host rescan required state, agents aborting but in 99% not completing backup scheduling.

I have opened a case [Veeam Backup & Replication for Veeam agent backups behaves intermittently - Case # 03569591] . haven't received any feedback as to what is happing.
