Connection to Veeam Backup & Replication Servers

The account used to connect Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager servers must:

  • Have the Veeam Backup Administrator role assigned.

This role must be assigned to the account on the machine that run Veeam Backup & Replication. If you connect Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, the account must have this role assigned on all underlying Veeam Backup & Replication servers.

  • Be a member of the Performance Monitor Users and Event Log Readers security groups.

These permissions must be granted to the account on machines that run:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication
    • Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager
    • Backup proxy, backup repository (Windows-based), WAN Accelerator, tape server and cloud gateway components (required to collect performance data from these servers)
  • Have permissions to remotely access WMI.

This includes remote access, activation and launching the DCOM application of WMI, and remote access to the root WMI namespace and sub-namespaces. For details on granting these permissions, see Configuring Permissions to Remotely Access WMI.

This permission must be granted to the account on machines that run:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication
    • Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager
    • Backup proxy, backup repository (Windows-based), WAN Accelerator, tape server and cloud gateway components (required to collect performance data from these servers)

Note:

You must use the account with local Administrator permissions in the following cases:

  • If you plan to install Veeam ONE agent on Veeam Backup & Replication server
  • If machines that run Veeam ONE server and Veeam Backup & Replication server belong to different domains or workgroups.
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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