    Limitations for Adding Backup Servers

    Consider these limitations when you add backup servers to the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager infrastructure:

    • You must not add a backup server to multiple instances of Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
    • You must not add a backup server cloned from an added backup server.
    • You must not add a backup server that holds the same configuration database as an added backup server, even after you remove the original backup server from Enterprise Manager. You may have two backup servers with the same configuration database when, for example, you restore the configuration database from one backup server to another. In case you want to manage such a backup server with Enterprise Manager, contact Veeam Customer Support.
    • You must not add more than one backup server that has a vCloud Director server in its infrastructure.
    • Install the same product version on the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server and Veeam backup servers. If you use different versions of Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager and Veeam Backup & Replication, you may not be able to leverage all features in Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.

    Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager supports adding backup servers with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 and later.
