  • Make the following modification to the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows GA (build 5.0.0.4301) configuration file:
    1. Edit C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Tray.exe.config
    2. Add the following new section after the </userSettings> line and before the </configuration> line:
   <runtime>
<AppContextSwitchOverrides value="Switch.System.Net.DontEnableSystemDefaultTlsVersions=false"/>
