Why SQL server in Veeam11a so old?

Post by Dmitrii the False2nd »

I just installed veeam11 and I see what's inside -
sqlservr.exe == 2015.131.5026.0
which corresponds
Build 13.0.5026.0
File version 2015.131.5026.0
kb 4052908
file Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 2 (SP2) from 2018-04-24

although nature after the COVID is so cleansed that SP3 has already been released
13.0.6300.2 2015.131.6300.2 5003279 Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 3 (SP3)
13.0.7016.1 2015.131.7016.1 5015371 Security update for SQL Server 2016 SP3 Azure Connect Feature Pack: June 14, 2022 CVE-2022-29143 2022-06-14

And I really miss the option to install SQL Server Management Studio

Hi Dmitrii

For new installations, V12 won‘t install SQL Express anymore. The new default will be PostgreSQL.

The base setup version of VBR v11/v11a is 2 years old, and we don‘t really have a chance to replace SQL outside of a major release.
Meanwhile you may update the MSSQL server with Windows Updates or manually.
