How do the Backup Service upgrade paths differ?

Upgrading the Backup Service may slow the normal operations of the SharePoint servers that host the Backup Service. You should consider upgrading previously deployed Backup Service installs off-hours during a single time period according to your corporate change policies. The first time that you start the Management Console when the upgrade is complete, the Management Console prompts you to remotely upgrade a previously deployed primary Backup Service automatically.

See the section titled Upgrading a Deployed Backup Service?

If you remotely deployed the Backup Service instances, the first time that you run the Management Console after the upgrade is complete, the Management Console prompts you to upgrade the primary Backup Service. This version of the Management Console and Management Service for Metalogix Backup for SharePoint require the same version of the Backup Service. If you do not upgrade when prompted no backup or restore operation can occur.

If you manually deployed the Backup Service, you can remotely deploy the upgrade. You can also run the Backup Service setup program on the computer that hosts the Backup Service to manually upgrade the service.

Upgrading a Full Installation

You can use the full install to upgrade your installation to this version of Metalogix Backup for SharePoint if you have a centralized deployment or if you are upgrading from a trial installation. This process assumes you can upgrade all deployed Backup Service instances during the same time period.

In a full installation, all of the Metalogix Backup for SharePoint management components are installed on the same physical computer. These components include the following:

·Repository database  

·Management Service  

·Management Console

Once you perform the upgrade, scheduled backups do not run successfully until you upgrade the Backup Service instances. After you upgrade the management components, you can use the Management Console to upgrade the Backup Service instances.

To perform a full install upgrade

1.Perform a full install to upgrade the management components to the new version. When prompted during the install, verify the name of the repository database. For more information about installing, see the section titled Installing Metalogix Backup for SharePoint.

2.Upgrade all previously deployed Backup Service instances. See the section titled Upgrading a Deployed Backup Service?

Performing a Custom Upgrade

When you upgrade a custom environment, you first perform a full installation to upgrade the core components. After this update is complete, you can use the Console-only install to upgrade any additional Management Console installations that share a single Management Service and repository database. Finally, you upgrade all deployed Backup Service instances.

To perform a custom upgrade

1.Perform a full install to upgrade the management components to the new version. When prompted during the install, verify the name of the repository database. For more information about installing, see the section titled Installing Metalogix Backup for SharePoint.

Upgrading a Deployed Backup Service
