Step 2. Adding Virtual Infrastructure Servers

To protect virtual machines with Veeam Backup & Replication, you must add the virtual infrastructure servers hosting these machines to the backup infrastructure.

You can add vCenter Servers and ESXi hosts. If an ESXi host is managed by a vCenter Server, it is recommended that you add the vCenter Server, not a standalone ESXi host.

Before You Begin

Make sure that the version of your VMware vSphere platform is supported. For details, see Platform Support in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

Adding Infrastructure Server

To add the server, do the following:

  1. In the inventory pane of the Backup Infrastructure view, right-click the Managed Servers node and select Add Server.

Step 2. Adding Virtual Infrastructure Servers 

  1. In the Add Server window, click VMware vSphere > vSphere to launch the New VMware Server wizard.
  2. At the Name step of the wizard, specify the DNS name or IP address of the server.

Step 2. Adding Virtual Infrastructure Servers 

  1. At the Credentials step of the wizard, specify credentials for the user account with Administrator permissions on the added server.

To add the account, do the following:

  1. Click Add.
  2. In the Credentials window, specify the username and password used to connect to the added server.
  3. Click OK.

Step 2. Adding Virtual Infrastructure Servers 

  1. Follow the next steps of the wizard. At the Summary step, click Finish.
  2. Open the Backup Infrastructure view and click the Managed Servers node. The added server must be available in the working area.
