VBR Proxy VM maintenance

Veeam Logoby albertwt » Thu May 07, 2015 11:27 am

Hi,

I've got several Windows 2008 R2 Std VM running as Veeam Backup Proxy.

If I'd like to perform VMware Tools upgrade, Symantec Antivirus Update and Windows Update on it, does it have any effect to the Veeam Backup Copy Job or any replication job ?

Is there any risk or harm in doing those three updates regularly ?

I would schedule maintenance window so that it does not overlap with any running jobs. Other than that there should not be any impact (unless some of the updates brake normal system operation).

Cool, so in this case do I need to stop all replication & Backup Copy job first for the Proxy VM upgrades ?

Just thought that you could disable the proxy prior performing maintenance so that Veeam B&R does not use it for any jobs.

Just right-click on it under Backup Infrastructure node and select the corresponding command.
