Before You Begin

    Before you add a Microsoft Windows server to the backup infrastructure, check network connection settings of this server.

    • File and printer sharing must be enabled in network connection settings of the added Microsoft Windows server. On every connected Microsoft Windows server, Veeam Backup & Replication deploys two components:
      • Veeam Installer Service
      • Veeam Data Mover

    If file and printer sharing is not enabled, Veeam Backup & Replication will fail to deploy these components.

    • If you plan to use PowerShell Direct, Microsoft PowerShell 2.0 must be installed on the added server.
