Can VSS Integration Components be rolled back?

Hi All,

I have just upgraded to B & R 9.5 Update 2 (9.5.0.1038).

This update, like many others, requires an upgrade to the Hyper-V Integration Components on my Hosts (my environment utilises Hyper-V rather than VMware).

I am wondering if the integration component can be rolled back (to a previous version)? If it cannot be rolled back what effects on the OS does the component have outside of VEEAM functionality?

Kind Regards,

Davo

Hi David, not sure I follow you here, Veeam B&R update doesn't affect any of the Hyper-V components. Are you probably confusing Veeam Hyper-V Integration Service deployed by Veeam B&R on each host with native Hyper-V Integration Components?

Hi foggy,

Yes I am confused on this front; does your response mean that the Hyper-V Integration Components installed by VEEAM are completely separate from Microsoft? If so how would I go about rolling-back the installation of the upgraded (VEEAM) Hyper-V Integration Components (assuming that rollback is possible)?

Kind Regards,

David

There is no impact outside of Veeam functionality. Why would you want to rollback?

Yes, those are completely different things. Though, Veeam B&R does rely on Microsoft's Hyper-V Integration Services for a number of tasks.
