This article documents the upgrade path to take to update Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 to the most recent version.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
In case Veeam Backup and Replication or Veeam Cloud Connect are installed on the server where Veeam Backup for Office 365 resides, please ensure you are running Veeam Backup and Replication 10 or Veeam Cloud Connect 10 before going through instruction below!

The latest Veeam updates: https://www.veeam.com/updates.html

Old versions of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 can be found here: https://www.veeam.com/older-versions-download.html

Consider the following when planning for upgrade:
  • All backup jobs, including those running on schedule will be stopped during the upgrade process.
  • Upgrading backup repositories may take significant time to complete and the upgrade duration highly depends on the amount and type of backup data in a repository. For the approximate upgrade time, please see the Release Note document for the corresponding product version. Plan for an appropriate maintenance window when your backup repository that is been upgraded is not available for use.
  • All modifications that have been made in the Config.xml file manually will be lost.
  • After a newer version of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is installed, all backup repositories, backup proxies and backup jobs will be marked as Out of Date. You need to upgrade these components manually from the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 UI before you proceed with upgrading to the next newer product version.
  • The currently installed Veeam Explorers must be upgraded along with Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365.
  • Backup jobs settings and global configuration options (including notifications, file exclusions, and so on) will be preserved after upgrade.
