Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service

In this article

    Note

    VeeamVES64.msi allows you to install the VE Service on a machine that does not run the OpsMgr SDK. However, it will not be able to support the following Veeam MP for VMware features:

    Open the command prompt and run the setup file VeeamVES64.msi using the following parameters:

    msiexec.exe [/L*v! "<path_to_log>"] /qn /I "<path_to_msi>" [INSTALLDIR="<path_to_installdir >"] VES_LICENSE_FILE="<path_to_license_file>" VES_SERVICE_USER="<Veeam_Virtualization_Extensions_Service_account>" VES_SERVICE_PASSWORD="<Veeam_Virtualization_Extensions_Service_account_password>" [VES_SERVER_PORT="< Veeam_Virtualization_Extensions_Service_port>"] [VES_RES_POOL="<Management_Server_Resource_Pool>"]

    The following command-line options are used to run the setup file:

    Option

    Parameter

    Required

    Description

    /L

    *v! logfile

    No

    Creates installation log file with the verbose output.

    Specify a full path to the log file as the parameter value. Any setup log file created during the previous installation will be cleared.

    Example:
    /L*v! ”C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Setup\Temp\Logs\VESSetup.txt”

    /q

    n

    Yes

    Sets user interface level to None.

    /I

    setup file

    Yes

    Installs the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service component.

    Specify a full path to the setup file as the parameter value.

    Example:
    /I “C:\Veeam\VeeamVES64.msi”

    INSTALLDIR

    path

    No

    Installs the component to the specified location.

    Example:
    INSTALLDIR=”C:\Program Files\Veeam\Manager”

    VES_LICENSE_FILE

    path

    Yes

    Specify the full path to the license file.

    Example:
    VES_LICENSE_FILE=”C:\Veeam\License\veeam_mp.lic”

    VES_SERVICE_USER

    user

    Yes

    Use the DOMAIN\USERNAME format to specify the service account. The account will be used for running the VE Service.

    The account must have Administrator permissions on computers hosting the VE Service and Collectors.

    Example:
    VES_SERVICE_USER=”veeam\Administrator”

    VES_SERVICE_PASSWORD

    password

    Yes

    Specify a password for the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service user.

    Example:
    VES_SERVICE_PASSWORD=”qwerty”

    VES_SERVER_PORT

    port

    No

    Specify a TCP port that will be used by the VE Service (by default, 8084).

    Example:
    VES_SERVER_PORT=”8084”

    VES_RES_POOL

    Management Server resource pool

    No

    Specify a name of the Management Server resource pool for Collector auto-deployment. This name must match the resource pool name in the OpsMgr.

    The parameter is required only for Veeam VMware Collector Auto-Deployment.

    Example:
    VES_RES_POOL=”Veeam Collectors”

    After installation completes, log off the server, then log on again. Or, in case you are installing the Veeam UI remotely with Windows PowerShell, close the remote PowerShell session and initiate a new one.

    Confirm installation and operation of the VE Service by checking the Windows Event Viewer. As soon as the VE Service starts, a new application log called Veeam Virtualization Extensions will be created, and events from the Veeam Virtualization Extensions source will appear in this log.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
