Upgrade Veeam endpoint to veeam agent

Post by DCW » Nov 13, 2019 2:26 am

Hi all,

I need to upgrade Veeam Endpoint to Veeam agent for windows on a critical server, is a restart required for this process? Is there any way to avoid a restart when installing Veeam agent?

What is the preferred way of installing the agent these days, push out from B&R or install manually?

if you install the CBT driver, then you definitely need a reboot.

Without CBT driver, it can work without reboot. But I would plan a reboot for safety reasons.

I prefer central agent management with VBR... but if you have only a hand full of servers, then the VBR overhead probably does not pay off.

Best regards,
