Veeam ONE - 12.1 Upgrade

 

Veeam released the 12.1 update back in November 2023, and with it comes upgrades to most components, including Veeam ONE. Today, I will walk through the upgrade process in my homelab to update my current Veeam ONE server from 12.0 to 12.1. Many enhancements came with Veeam ONE 12.1, including some of the following -

  • Veeam Threat Center

  • Unified Analytics-Driven Approach to Data Management

    • Integrated Dashboards

  • Alarm Lifecycle

    • ServiceNow Incident Management Integration

    • Syslog SIEM Integration

  • Elevating Veeam Data Platform Security

    • Backup Security and Compliance: Instant Insights for Robust Data Protection

    • Malware Detection: Pinpoint, Protect, Prevail

A full list of the enhancements in Veeam ONE 12.1 can be found here - Veeam ONE 12.1 - What's New.

***NOTE - You must download the Veeam ONE 12.1 ISO file to follow the steps.***

The following steps are required to upgrade Veeam ONE to 12.1 -

  • Mount the ISO file on your Veeam ONE server and run the SETUP.EXE file

  • Upon launch of the installation wizard on the first screen, you will click the Upgrade button to begin.

Step 1 - Upgrade button
  • After clicking the Upgrade button, you will select the option for your upgrade, which could be -

    • Upgrade Veeam ONE

    • Upgrade Veeam ONE Client

  • I clicked on Upgrade Veeam ONE since my server is an all-in-one.

Step 4 - Veeam ONE components to be upgraded
  • You will click Next to proceed to the next screen, the License.

  • At the License screen, there are two ways to input a license file -

    • Logging in to your Veeam account for the license

    • Browsing to a license file (LIC) - this will be the option I am using

Step 5 - Browse for the license file
  • Click Next to proceed to the Service Account screen.

  • At the Service Account Screen, you will type in the account to be used for the Veeam ONE services - this should detect the current account being used, so you need to type the password and click Next to proceed.
