Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV

In this article

    You can install the Nutanix AHV Plug-in in the unattended mode. Note that if you want to manage AHV VM backup in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, you must install both the Nutanix AHV Plug-in service (NutanixAHVPlugin.msi) and the UI components of Nutanix AHV Plug-in (NutanixAHVPluginUI.msi).

    To install Nutanix AHV Plug-in, use a command with the following syntax:

    msiexec /qn /i <msi> ACCEPT_THIRDPARTY_LICENSES=1 ACCEPT_EULA=1

    The command has the following parameters:
