Every Druva release brings along new features, enhancements, bug fixes, and performance improvements. To use these added capabilities, you must ensure that your Druva Backup proxy is at the latest version.  This article describes how to upgrade your Backup proxy using the Management Console.


  1. Log in to the Management Console.
  2. Select your Organization if Organizations are enabled.
  3. On the menu bar, click Protect > Nutanix AHV.
  4. In the left pane, click All Backup Proxies.
  5. Under the Version column, you can see the current version status for each Backup proxy associated with the selected Prism.

    The Backup proxy cannot be upgraded to the latest version through the Management Console. 

    Note: If the Nutanix Backup proxy cannot be upgraded through the Management Console, deploy a new version for the latest available Backup proxy.
