Veeam Backup Server - SQL 2008 R3 SP3 install OK?

Post by stuartmacgreen » Nov 03, 2014 1:39 pm

Have installed Veeam Backup & Replication from the ISO media for v7.0 and have latest patch. Up and running fine. (Note: did not install a separate Full SQL edition, took version that came with B&R software)

Our security/network team are reporting to us from their vulnerability engine appliance scanner that the version of SQL detected ie MS SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 is EOL/Obsolete. And advise to obtain the latest SP for this version of SQL.

Q: Is it ok to apply the latest SP for MS SQL Server edition that comes with v7.0 installation media? I am being directed to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2527041 which shows MS SQL SERVER 2008 R2 SP3 released September 2014.

Just looking for clarification as cant find a KB article to confirm this.
Backup Infrastructure: Veeam B&R 9.5 U4 • vSphere 6.5 u2 • HPE MSA 2040 [FC] (Backup Target) • HPE MSL6480 LTO-6 (Tape Storage)
(Veeam Agent for Windows protecting Veeam Proxy / Tape / Repository servers)

Yes, feel free to apply SP3 to the SQL Server hosting Veeam database. Thanks!
