Updating Veeam Backup Server Certificate
Veeam uses certificates to secure backup communications between your backup component. In this case I am having Veeam use a self-signed certificate, but you can select your own from the certificate store or import a pxf file that you have from somewhere else like Let’s Encrypt or another certificate authority.
Go to the menu - > General Options
Select the security tab
If you click on the self signed cert link you will get the cert info as shown below.
To update the certificate press the install button
Select generate new certificate
Once that is done the install the certificate your given the option of installing on the localmachine or for the user; I installed it on the local machine and upon closing and relaunching Veeam, the error was resolved. When using self-signed certificates with Veeam, the Veeam server is suppose to automatically renew the certificate every 12 months. However a bug introduced in v9.5 U3a, caused an issue with the certificate renewal.
If you ignore this message, agent management functionality and granular restores will start failing. The fix is to generate a new certificate as described When updating your certificate disable all backup jobs and update the certificate; then re-enable your backup jobs. You want to do this because when you update the certificate the Veeam Backup Service restarts. If you do the certificate update process with jobs running you could cause the jobs to fail or corrupt data.
