Veeam Availability Console 2.0
Administrator Guide for Enterprises

Managing Portal Administrators

Veeam Availability Console grants Portal Administrator privileges to users that either:

  • Have membership in the local Administrators user group on the machine where Veeam Availability Console is installed.
  • Have a Veeam Backup Administrator role assigned in Veeam Backup & Replication on the Veeam Cloud Connect server.

You can assign the role of a Portal Administrator to other users, enable and disable Portal Administrators.

Assigning Portal Administrator Role

To grant Portal Administrator privileges to a user:

  • Add a user to the local Administrators group on the machine hosting Veeam Availability Console. If you installed Veeam Availability Console using the distributed deployment scenario, this must be a machine on which the Veeam Availability Console Server component runs.

For details, see This Microsoft TechNet article.

  • Assign to the user the role of a Veeam Backup Administrator on the Veeam Cloud Connect server.

For details, see Assigning Roles to Users.
