Veeam Best Practice - Patching and Rebooting VB&R Servers

Veeam Logoby AdrianHinton » Fri May 30, 2014 3:39 am

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.

[MERGED] Rebooting Proxy Server due to windows Patching

Veeam Logoby stb74 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 9:21 am

Hi

I am looking some advice around windows patching of backup/proxy server when running SQL log backups. Before the reboot do we just disable the backup job which will then stop the log backup then reboot. What affect does this have on the log backup and do we just simply enable to job again when the server starts backup again.

Hi,

The only thing to keep in mind that you should reboot servers when all the jobs are disabled. Thanks!
