Like a lot of you out there I have been running the RTM release of Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 and have been waiting for the Day 0 Release. This release allows you to do an in-place upgrade of the RTM deployment which saves you having to reinstall and point back to the configuration database.

That release is finally available and you can download a copy here KB2883

Now that it’s time to move to the GA release I thought I would put together a quick walk through on what is involved.

Check your version number, the RTM version should 9.5.4.2399

If the server is busy in any way you will get the following prompt when you try to start the upgrade,

It recommends to stop and disable any jobs that you currently have setup. If you get this prompt and your Veeam server is sitting idle just disable the current job list then restart and try the upgrade again.

Here is a walk-through video of the upgrade process, apologies in advance as I haven’t added in a cool soundtrack over the top.

Once the upgrade is complete you can launch Veeam Backup & Replication and any connected components will now be automatically upgraded.

Then just to be sure everything has gone through as expected check the version number one more time. It should now be 9.5.4.2615
