Veeam Virtualization Extensions Web UI

In this article

    Note

    In case you are installing the Veeam UI on the same computer as the VE Service, log off the server after the VE Service installation, then log on again.

    In case you are installing the Veeam UI remotely with Windows PowerShell, 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 Veeam UI setup will fail with the User is not allowed to access the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Service error.

    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>"]
