Upgrading Agent from 5.0.3 to 6.0.0 via CLI

Post by X-ian »

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to update Veeam Agent on remote machines via CLI.

Code: Select all

VeeamAgentWindows_6.0.0.960.exe /silent /accepteula /acceptthirdpartylicenses
Unfortunately, the setup wizard exits with exit code 1004. Executing the installer via normal double click works just fine but I'm asked to migrate the database. After that, reinstalling via CLI also returns code 1000. Shouldn't the installer do the migration unless I tell it not to with /skipmigration? Or am I doing anything wrong? The same switches have worked ever since from at least any V5.x, as I recall.

Hello and welcome to the forums Christian,

Indeed VeeamAgentWindows_6.0.0.960.exe /silent /accepteula /acceptthirdpartylicenses should install new version on top of v5 and migrate the database settings. Any chance you have a case ID to share?

QA team believes that the issue with database migration itself, is it possible to raise a support ticket and share the case ID with us? Thank you!

Hello, I was only able to do the upgrade making workaround with localdb:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\sqllocaldb.exe" s v11.0 >nul 2>&1
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 >nul 2>&1
for /F "delims=" %%f IN ('dir /b "%~dp0bin\VeeamAgentWindows_6*.exe"') DO (
"%~dp0bin\%%f" /silent /accepteula /acceptthirdpartylicenses
) >nul 2>&1
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\sqllocaldb.exe" p v11.0 >nul 2>&1

Best regards,
Guillermo

Hi Guillermo,

I am using PsExec to start the setup on the remote machines from my PC. Unfortunately, your workaround did not work for me.

Best regards,
Christian

QA and Support folks are investigating the case, indeed they suspect localdb to misbehave during migration. Stay tuned!

Hello all,

adding the -s switch to PsExec helped. The SYSTEM context is able to migrate the LocalDB.

Best regards,
Christian
