Tenants of Veeam Cloud Service Providers

If your Veeam Backup & Replication installation is connected to a Veeam Cloud Service Provider, contact your Service Provider before upgrading to ensure that the intended upgrade will not break compatibility.

A tenant cannot be on a newer version of Veeam Backup & Replication than the Service Provider.

Purpose

This article documents the upgrade path to be taken to get to the most recent version of Veeam Backup & Replication.

Solution

End of Support Upgrade Path

If you are using a version of Veeam Backup & Replication (VBR) that has reached its End of Support (EOS) and cannot be directly upgraded to a supported version, you will need to install a new instance of VBR using the latest VBR version.

Clarification: If the Upgrade Instructions in the User Guide for a currently supported version of VBR outlines an upgrade path from an older, unsupported version, this upgrade pathway is still considered supported. This article provides details on upgrade processes for such situations, as long as a currently supported version of VBR facilitates a direct upgrade from these older versions.

For example:

  • When VBR version 11a was supported, it provided an upgrade path from VBR version 9.5 Update 4b. However, VBR version 12 does not support upgrading directly from 9.5 Update 4b. As a result, after VBR 11a reached EOS, the upgrade path for 9.5 Update 4b was removed from this document.
  • VBR version 12, which is currently supported, allows upgrading directly from VBR version 10a. Thus, although VBR 10a is no longer supported itself, the upgrade details for 10a are included in this document because an upgrade to VBR 12 from that version is officially supported.
