Installing Veeam CBT Driver

You can install the Veeam CBT driver at any time you need. This operation is available if you use the Server edition of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows on a computer that runs a Microsoft Windows Server OS.

Installing Veeam CBT Driver Important!

Consider the following:

  • Prior to installing the Veeam CBT driver on a computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, make sure that update KB3033929 is installed in the OS. To learn more, see https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=46083.
  • Do not install the Veeam CBT driver on a computer running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012 or 2012 R2 if one or more volumes on this computer are encrypted with Microsoft BitLocker (or other encryption tool), or if you plan to use Microsoft BitLocker to encrypt volumes on this computer. Concurrent operation of Microsoft BitLocker and Veeam CBT driver may result in driver failures and may prevent the OS from starting.

To install the Veeam CBT driver:

  1. Double-click the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows icon in the system tray or right-click the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows icon in the system tray and select Control Panel.
  2. At the top of the window, click the Settings tab.
  3. Click Install CBT driver.
  4. To complete the installation process, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows needs to reboot the computer. To reboot the computer immediately, in the displayed window, click OK. After Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows reboots the computer, the driver will start tracking blocks that are changing on the volume(s) whose data you chose to back up in the backup job settings.

If you choose not to reboot the computer immediately, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will continue to use the default CBT mechanism until the next computer reboot.
