Kerberos Authentication

Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager supports Kerberos authentication for communication with backup servers and file-level restore. Although Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager works in a Kerberos-only environment, NTLM authentication is still supported as a fallback.

For more information on Kerberos authentication and requirements for a Kerberos-only environment, see the Kerberos Authentication section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.


Backup servers with Veeam Backup & Replication 11a or earlier require NTLM for communication.
