How to update Veeam Explorers for M365 backup powered by Veeam

Description

To connect to the backup infrastructure using Veeam Explorers, it is mandatory to update them after a setup of a Veeam Backup & Replication server.

It is also strongly recommended to update Veeam Explorers frequently to get new features and bug fixes, especially once Sherweb has made infrastructure upgrades.

Requirements

If you don’t have a Veeam Backup & Replication server in place yet, please follow this article for guidance.
