Before the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager deployment, make sure your environment meets the prerequisites and requirements described below.
Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager uses an SQL Server instance installed either locally or remotely. In case it is not installed, the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager setup will install Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP1 Express Edition on your computer. If an SQL Server instance has already been installed by the previous version, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager will connect to the existing database, upgrade it (if necessary) and use it for work.
It is recommended that before deploying Enterprise Manager, you check the system requirements, considerations and limitations, as well as user rights and permissions and the list of ports needed for communication between solution components, described below in this guide.
