In case you are installing Veeam UI on the same computer as the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service, you will need to log off the server after Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service installation, then log on again.
In case you are installing Veeam UI remotely with Windows PowerShell, you will need to close the remote PowerShell session and initiate a new one.
This is required to activate the new Veeam Virtualization Extensions Users local group. (Otherwise, the UI setup will fail with “User is not allowed to access the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service”).
Open the command prompt and run the setup file UI.msi using the command of the following format:
msiexec.exe [/L*v! "<path_to_log>"] /qn /I "<path_to_msi>" [INSTALLDIR="<path_to_installdir>"] EMUI_EM_SERVER="<Veeam_Virtualization_Extensions _server_address>" EMUI_EM_SERVER_PORT="<Veeam_Virtualization_Extensions _port>" [EMUI_WEB_SITE_PORT="<website_port>"]
The following command-line options are used to run the setup file:
Produces installation log file with the verbose output. Specify a full path to the log file as the parameter value. Any setup log file produced during the previous installation will be cleared.
Sets user interface level to “no”.
Installs the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Web UI component. Specify a full path to the setup file as the parameter value.
Installs the component to the specified location.
INSTALLDIR=”C:\Program Files\Veeam\Veeam Virtualization Extensions for System Center Configuration”
Specify an IP address or FQDN of the server where the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service is installed.
Specify TCP port that was selected for Veeam Virtualization Extensions service.
Specify TCP port that will be used for connection with the UI website from the web browser. By default, port number 4430 is used.
