Veeam Best Practice - Patching and Rebooting VB&R Servers

Hi,

What are Veeam's best practice recommendations for both restarting VB&R servers (Targets and VB&R servers) and applying Windows updates and restarting?

The only recommendation that comes from the top of my head is not restarting Veeam B&R components (management server and especially proxy and repository servers) while backups are running.

Thank you Foggy. That is my way of thinking and also what I have been doing. I was just hoping that I wasn't missing some recommendations such as stopping certain services.

No, there's no need to do that.

What about where SQL transactions logs / copy jobs are running ? those processes are more or less continuous.

Does Veeam advise that we should disable all the jobs before we patch and reboot the Veeam servers?

Doing this will certainly not hurt.
