At the Default Configuration step of the wizard, you can select to install Veeam Backup & Replication with default installation settings or specify custom installation settings.
By default, the setup wizard installs Veeam Backup & Replication with the following settings:
- Installation folder: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication.
- vPower cache folder: C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\NfsDatastore. The vPower cache folder stores write cache for Instant VM Recovery. Make sure that you have at least 10 GB of free disk space to store the write cache.
- Guest catalog folder: C:\VBRCatalog. The guest catalog folder stores indexing data for VM guest OS files. Indexing data is required for browsing and searching for VM guest OS files inside backups and performing 1-click restore.
- Catalog service port: 9393. The catalog service port is used by the Veeam Guest Catalog Service to replicate catalog data from backup servers to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.
- Service account: LOCAL SYSTEM. The service account is the account under which the Veeam Backup Service runs.
- Service port: 9392. The service port is used by Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager to collect data from backup servers. In addition to it, the Veeam Backup & Replication console uses this service port to connect to the backup server.
- Secure connections port: 9401. The secure connections port is used by the mount server to communicate with the backup server.
- SQL Server: LOCALHOST\VEEAMSQL2012. During installation, Veeam Backup & Replication installs a new instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP3 Express Edition locally on the backup server.
- Database name: VeeamBackup. Veeam Backup & Replication deploys the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration database on the locally installed instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP3 Express Edition.
