Upgrading Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 to V5

Veeam Office365 V5 dropped today which includes native support for Teams. This is a huge step in the right direction as MS Teams usage has exploded since COVID, I know I spend a lot of my day in Teams and have recently uploaded a significant amount of data to Teams so being able to protect it is very important.

Considering I already run VBOv4 I thought I would run through the upgrade process.

  • Download the install packages from Veeam
    • Run the Veeam.Backup365_5.0.0.1061.exe
  • Click Next

    • Accept the Terms and Conditions
  • Click Next

    • Confirm the file path
  • Click Next and then Finish
  • Browse back to the download location and install the three explorers packages

Final steps to completing the upgrade it to make sure you upgrade your repositories and proxies which can be located under the Backup Infrastructure tab

Congratulations that’s it 🙂 Once you have done that you should see the new build number as below and be ready to protect you O365 workloads.
