Accessing vSphere Client Plug-in
To access the plug-in, launch the vSphere Client and select Veeam Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client from the menu.
Make sure, the account used to access the plug-in has permissions to connect to the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager server and (optionally) Veeam ONE server.
- To launch the plug-in and successfully obtain statistics from Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, you need to pair a vCenter Server role with an Enterprise Manager role. Then you can use an account with this vCenter Server role to log in to the vSphere Client and access the plug-in. For more information on assigning Enterprise Manager roles, see Configuring VMware vSphere Roles.
- 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.
- 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 log in to the vSphere Client 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.
