Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service

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:

VES_SERVICE_USER

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

Example:
VES_SERVICE_USER=”veeam\Administrator”

VES_SERVICE_PASSWORD

VES_RES_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.
