Hi

Is this a physical or virtual veeam server?

If is virtual you should make a backup, or the minimum take a snapshot.

Veeam server settings/configuration should be backup every day. So you should check that if is working.

There is some pre steps that you should do before an upgrade.

In this article Anthony explain how to:

its VM and all veeamCC components running on IT. Two drives created with size 15TB.

I just want to backup drive C and not 2 x 15TB drives which is atatched - that as Veeam CC data/backup.

Veeam server settings/configuration should be backup every day. So you should check that if is working.

As far i know - i get messages that said config backup daily. Apart from config - do i need backup anything else?

Hi,

IF you have a backup(do also a snapshot) and have the Veeam configuration backup, you safe.

So no need to do extra stuff to perform this upgrade.
