Please confirm you are running version 126.96.36.1992 or 188.8.131.521 prior to installing this update. You can check this under Help | About in Veeam Backup & Replication console.
If you are using partner preview build 184.108.40.2063, you must upgrade to GA build 220.127.116.112 first by installing Day 0 Update (Note: Be sure NOT to accidentally install Update 0 on any build other than 18.104.22.1683)
After upgrading, your build will be version 22.214.171.1245
Prior to installing this update please reboot the Veeam server to clear any locks on the Veeam services and when the reboot is done, please stop all the Veeam jobs and services before applying the update.
Ensure that Veeam service account has the db_owner role on the Veeam configuration database, so that the required database updates can be made during the first service start up after update. Additionally, either give Veeam service account the sysadmin role on the SQL Server hosting the configuration database, or just the right to view system table content (
GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE TO "DOMAIN\ACCOUNT"). All of the above-mentioned roles and rights can be revoked after update is completed.
After installing the update, during the first start of the Veeam Backup Service, required modifications will be made to the configuration database automatically to optimize its performance. These modifications may take up to 10 minutes to complete. Please do not reboot the Veeam server, or attempt to stop the service during this operation. If there is concern regarding the time that the Veeam Backup Service takes to start after upgrade, please contact Veeam Customer Support.
Once Veeam Backup Service starts, please open the console and allow Veeam Backup & Replication to update its remote components.
If you have Veeam Enterprise Manager installed on a separate server, you need to install the update on it as well.
