Installing vSphere Client Plug-in

To install Veeam Plug-in for VMware vSphere Client, take the following steps:

  1. Log in to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager using an account with the Portal Administrator role.
  2. Click Configuration in the top right corner.
  3. In the Configuration view, go to the vCenter Servers section.
  4. Select the vCenter Server you need, and click Check version.
  5. In the Web Client Plug-in window, enter a user name and password to connect to the vCenter Server, and specify a connection port (default port is 443). Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager will use these credentials to access the vCenter Server and check if Veeam plug-in has been already installed there. If discovered, the plug-in version will be displayed in the Plug-in Version column.
  6. If the connection to vCenter Server is successful, and the plug-in has not been installed yet, then the Install link will become active. Click it to install the plug-in.
  7. After installation, the plug-in will be displayed in the list of vCenter Servers and plug-ins.
