Veeam Data Mover Service

In this article

    Veeam Data Mover Service is a component that gives access to a host by enabling Veeam Data Movers agents that are responsible for VM data processing and transfer.

    When you add a Microsoft Windows or Linux server, Veeam Backup & Replication can install Veeam Data Mover Service automatically. Several limitations apply; see below.

    If you do not wish  Veeam Backup & Replication to install Veeam Data Mover Service, the user account specified for the server must not have root or elevated to root permission.

    Note

    In Veeam Backup & Replication 11, Veeam Data Mover Service is required by Linux backup proxies. When you upgrade to this version, Linux hosts with proxy role will require update during which Veeam Data Mover Service will be installed. Linux hosts that did not have the proxy role will not require update and will be available through SSH connection. If you wish to install Veeam Data Mover Service on such host, right-click on your Linux host, select Properties and follow the steps of Edit Linux Server wizard.

    Otherwise, Veeam Data Mover Service will not be installed, but the host will still be available through SSH connection.
