Veeam Service Provider Console Management Agent for Linux

In this article

    To install Veeam Service Provider Console management agent, use a command with the following syntax:

    sudo <path_to_package>/'LinuxAgentPackages.<company_name>.sh' ; veeamconsoleconfig -g add <gateway>:<port> --tag_name <tag>  --validate_cert <thumbprint>

    where:

    • <path_to_package> — path to the directory where you have saved the installation package.

    Make sure you have saved installation package to the directory where you want to install Veeam Service Provider Console management agent.

    • <company_name> — name of the company to which the management agent is assigned.

    If you have downloaded an agent not assigned to any company, the setup file name will be LinuxAgentPackages.sh.

    • <gateway> — FQDN or IP address of a cloud gateway.
    • <port> — the port on the cloud gateway that is used to transfer data to Veeam Service Provider Console.
    • [optional] <tag> — tag that will be assigned to the management agent.

    If you do not want to assign tag to the management agent, you can skip the --tag_name command.

    • <thumbprint> — thumbprint of the security certificate that is installed on the Veeam Service Provider Console server.

    If you do not specify a certificate thumbprint, you will be asked to verify the security certificate.

    Important!

    It is strongly recommended to provide a certificate thumbprint for automated verification of the security certificate. Do not use the --validate_cert command with -f argument.
