Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files

    Deploying Veeam Agents Using Generated Setup Files IMPORTANT

    Mind the following:

    • The deployment operation must take place on the Veeam Agent computer side.
    • You must use only those Veeam Agent setup files that are generated by Veeam Backup & Replication after the protection group with a flexible scope is created. To learn more, see Specifying Packages.

    Starting from version 11, Veeam Backup & Replication exports setup files for Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 5.0, Veeam Agent for Linux 5.0, and Veeam Agent for Mac 1.0.

    • If any other version of Veeam Agent is already installed on the computer you plan to protect, you must uninstall it first.
    • If you uninstall Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows added to the protection group of the Computers with pre-installed agents type and then re-install it on the same computer, Veeam Agent will not connect to the Veeam backup server automatically. To connect Veeam Agent, you must repeat the operation of the Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows configuration.

    Deployment scenario depends on the Veeam Agent you work with:
