The process to upgrade the environment is really easy and the idea is not a step by step, for the simple fact that is not necessary a complete how to about this.

The setup is only about Next, Next, Upgrade, Finish:


After that we can open VBR console and go to Backup Infrastructure view, navigate to Backup Proxies > Out of Date, right click on the proxy appliance of Nutanix AHV and select Upgrade Proxy:


After that, the upgrade of Veeam proxy appliance will start:


At the final you only need to press Finish button.
