Impressive script! For what scenarios do you use it?

Thanks! I’m not sure I understand the question.

 

The script is to be executed on servers with Veeam Backup & Replication and/or Enterprise Manager installed. The script detects the software installed and upgrades it to version 11.

if I remember correctly first the EM upgrade is performed and the second step upgrades the VBR.

First of all shutdown all veeam server, cold snapshot then native SQL backup, full app aware backup.

As a friend of mine said, backups are never enough :joy:

Before updating a VCSP-VVC infrastructure I wait 4 months or the first patch released

In which environments do you use this script? Do you use this script to update a all-in-one VRB installation as well?
