B&R 9.5

I see that B&R 9.5 is available.
Where can I locate the release notes?
Can I download the .iso for testing purposes and use it to update my 9.0 server?

Hi Mario, yes, you can download the bits in the Veeam site download area. Documentation (including RN) is already available it its usual location.

Thank you for the pointers.
Let me ask for a clarification: on page 22 of the Release notes I read:

Ensure there are no running jobs, including restore sessions, Instant VM Recovery sessions and SureBackup jobs. We recommend you do not stop running jobs and let them complete successfully instead. Disable any periodic and Backup Copy jobs temporarily to prevent them from starting during the upgrade.


On one of my Veeam servers I have several replica jobs that failed for varius reasons, including missing or deleted VMs at the rarget site, jobs forced to stop, and so on.
Should I delete all the replica jobs I cannot execute succesfully?
I hope I don't...
Regards

This statement doesn't prescribe to delete jobs, but just ensure no jobs are running prior starting the upgrade procedure.

Hi Marius

If these failed jobs aren't running then you should be fine.

It's best to disable all the jobs you've configured to make sure that there isn't any job running (or idle as the backup copy) at the time of the upgrade.

After the upgrade to 9.5 you can enable all these jobs and then try to figure out why some are failing.
Best regards,
Karl
