47094: Acronis Backup Advanced: Upgrade Sequence

First you should upgrade the components for centralized management, then Acronis Agents if these are on separate machines

This article applies to:

  • Acronis Backup 11.5 (Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5)
  • Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 (Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced)


Components of Acronis Backup 11.5 can only be installed over components of Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 or Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Build 11639 (U2) or higher.

If you have all Acronis Backup & Recovery components on one machine, you can upgrade them all in one go - see:

If you have Acronis Backup & Recovery components installed on separate machines, it is recommended to first upgrade the components for centralized management and only then Acronis Agents.

There may be a transition period where in the infrastructure you will have both Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 (Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Advanced) and components from previous versions, which is normal: Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 Agents and Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 (build 11639 or later) Agents are compatible with components for centralized management of the version 11.5.


If you have each of the components installed on a separate machine, the recommended Acronis Backup & Recovery 11 upgrade sequence is:

  1. Upgrade Acronis Backup & Recovery Management Console.
  2. Upgrade Acronis Backup & Recovery License Server.
  3. Upgrade Acronis Backup & Recovery Management Server and Acronis Backup & Recovery Storage Node.
    All these components can be upgraded as described in Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5: Upgrading from Previous Editions.
  4. Upgrade Acronis Backup & Recovery Agents - both local and remote upgrade installation is supported:
