  • The wizard finds the old version of Veeam. Choose next to proceed with upgrade
  • Browse to licence file
  • System configuration check. Allows you to install missing components
  • Reboot if missing components installed require it

  • Setup should find the existing DB used by Veeam Enterprise Manager. Choose to upgrade it
  • Allow upgrade to complete
  • Reboot if prompted
