Importing Connection Settings

In this article

    To use Veeam Agent for Mac together with Veeam Backup & Replication, you must connect your Mac computer to the Veeam backup server. To do this, you must import the configuration file. The configuration file is one of the Veeam Agent for Mac setup files that you must obtain from your System Administrator. To learn more, see the Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.

    To import the Veeam Agent for Mac configuration file:

    1. Start Veeam Agent with Launchpad.
    2. In the upper-right corner of the menu bar, click the Veeam Agent icon.
    3. Select Import > Configuration.
    4. In the Finder, select the XML file with the configuration and click Open.

    When the configuration file is imported, Veeam Agent immediately connects to the Veeam backup server. After that, your Veeam Agent computer will be displayed as a member of the protection group in the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    If your Veeam Agent computer is connected to the Veeam backup server, and the backup policy is already configured on the Veeam Backup & Replication side, you can back up data on your Veeam Agent computer. To learn more, see Starting Backup Policy.

    To learn more about backup policy configuration, see the Creating Agent Backup Policy for Mac Computers section in the Veeam Agent Management Guide.

    Alternatively, you can import the Veeam Agent for Mac configuration with the MDM solution or command line interface.
