v7 to v8 Upgrade order of patches

Veeam Logoby pkelly_sts » Tue Aug 25, 2015 11:05 am

Just checking best practice for upgrade - should I upgrade the host, reboot, then upgrade the other components (proxies etc.) or is it best to upgrade host, reboot, install patch and THEN upgrade other components?

Install the latest Veeam B&R update (updates are cumulative), Veeam B&R will prompt for its components update automatically after the first start. Btw, the step-by-step upgrade procedure is outlined in the release notes document.

Thanks, all now completed! (I really should have read the release notes first - I'm far too trusting! :)

Glad everything went fine. I'd say most of the people appeal to release notes only after being stuck on something. ;)
