Solution

Important Note Regarding Performance
Veeam Backup & Replication provides an option during installation to create a local SQL Express instance. This option is often taken and as such older versions of Veeam that are then updated may be running on old SQL Express instances. This can affect performance. It may be advised to upgrade the local SQL instance to the most current supported version after first upgrading Veeam to the latest version and update. All versions of Veeam Backup & Replication after 8.0.0.917 (Patch 1) support SQL 2014.
 
Note: Versions 7 and higher require a 64 bit OS for installation.
 
Versions Prior to 6.0.0.x
If the server where the older version of Veeam Backup & Replication is currently installed meets the system requirements it is advised to uninstall the older version and install a newer version.
