Veeam Service Provider Console Management Agent for Mac

In this article

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

    sudo <path_to_package>/'MacAgentPackages.<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.
    • <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 MacAgentPackages.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.
