Accessing vSphere Client Plug-in

To access the plug-in, open the VMware vSphere Client and select Veeam Backup & Replication from the menu.

Make sure, the account used to connect to the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server and (optionally) Veeam ONE server has required permissions.

  • To successfully obtain statistics from Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, the accounts used to connect to Enterprise Manager (that is, the account currently logged in to the vSphere Client, or specific account configured in the plug-in settings) must have an Enterprise Manager role.
  • To create a VeeamZIP backup or Quick Backup, the Portal Administrator or Portal User role is required.
  • To browse backup infrastructure, the Restore Operator role is enough.

For more information on Enterprise Manager roles, see Configuring Accounts and Roles.

  • If you have Veeam ONE deployed in your environment and you want to open Veeam ONE reports from the plug-in (optional capability), the accounts used to connect to Enterprise Manager must be also included in the Veeam ONE Power Users, Veeam ONE Read-Only Users or Veeam ONE Administrators group on the machine where Veeam ONE Server is installed. For more information, see the Security Groups section of the Veeam ONE Deployment Guide.
