How to get updates for Backup Exec - Service Pack, Hotfix, Patches and Device Drivers

Problem

How to get updates for Backup Exec (BE) - Service Pack (SP), Hotfix (HF), and Device Driver (DDI) updates.

Solution

Please run Live Update to apply the current Feature Pack (FP) or Service Pack (SP) to a Backup Exec Server (formerly known as a Media Server)
Once the update is applied to the Backup Exec Server, the Remote Agents will need to be redeployed so that they receive the update.

Updates are released periodically. The Feature Pack or Service Pack is a roll up of all prior Feature Pack or Service Packs, Patches, or HotFixes. After a new update is released it is available for manual download using the links below. The update is normally added to Live Update approximately two weeks after its release. The previous updates for that Backup Exec version are removed from Live Update.

If a Patch released after the current Service Pack is needed to resolve an issue, it can be manually downloaded and applied from the links below. The next Service Pack will include all Patches up to the date of the Service Pack.


Note:

  • Windows Small Business Server (SBS) version downloads listed as SBS.
  • Drivers for BE 12.0 and higher are included in HF/SP updates.
