How to review a new version?

Post by Backup_Guy »

Hello,

I'm somewhat new to Veeam and major upgrades. I'm looking for someone who has been through one and can give me some pointers. What did you read or how did you prepare for the upgrade. Did you wait for a patch for the version to be put out first... ETC

Kevin
Thanks for looking!

I‘m always going forward with the GA Version. Veeam Support is one of the best, if something isn‘t working.

There are some documents to read before the upgrade:

Whats New PDF

Release Notes

Upgrade Checklist

If you use a Cloud Connect Provider, please check with them, that they already have the newest version.
And read the system requirements for any changes to os support or hypervisor support.

My test enviroment.
Tomorrow, my main Backup server will be upgraded. Had to check something first with veeam support for my Nutanix AHV Backup integration to get clearance for the update (old support case of mine :))

For Top Issues tracked by veeam support with the new version, you can find out more about them and a solution here in the forums:
