Configuring Auto Deployment Settings

If you install Veeam backup agents outside Veeam Service Provider Console (manually or using 3rd party automation tools), you may need to configure auto deployment settings. Auto deployment settings define whether Veeam Service Provider Console must automatically register new management agents, and whether registered management agents must automatically install Veeam backup agent on hosting computers.

Configuring Auto Deployment Settings

To configure auto deployment settings:

  1. Log in to Veeam Service Provider Console as a Portal Administrator.

For details, see Accessing Veeam Service Provider Console.

  1. In the menu on the left, click Discovery.
  2. Open the Discovered Computers tab.
  3. Click Change Settings to open the Auto Deployment Settings window.
  4. Use the Accept New Connections toggle to specify whether Veeam Service Provider Console must accept connections from new Veeam Service Provider Console management agents.
  • Set the toggle to On if Veeam Service Provider Console must accept connections from new management agents.

In this case, when a new management agent connects to Veeam Service Provider Console, Veeam Service Provider Console will automatically register this agent.

  • Set the toggle to Off if Veeam Service Provider Console must not accept connections from new management agents.

In this case, when a new management agent connects to Veeam Service Provider Console, Veeam Service Provider Console will display this agent in the list of discovered computers but will not register it. To register the agent, you must manually accept the agent connection. For details, see Accepting and Rejecting Management Agent Connections.

  1. Use the Auto Deployment toggle to specify whether management agents must automatically install Veeam backup agent after registration with Veeam Service Provider Console.
  • Set the toggle to On if after registration (either automatic or manual) management agents must download from the Veeam Installation Server the Veeam backup agent setup file, install Veeam backup agent and assign the backup policy specified in the auto deployment settings.
  • Set the toggle to Off if after registration management agents must not automatically install Veeam backup agent.
  1. In the Backup policy to apply list, select a backup policy that must be assigned to configure Veeam backup agent job settings after automatic software deployment.

If you do not want to configure backup job settings after installation, choose No policy from the list.

To create a new backup policy, click the Create New link. For details on backup policies, see Configuring Backup Policies.

  1. Use the Read-only User access toggle to enable read-only access mode for Veeam backup agents.
  • Set the toggle to On if the read-only access mode must be enabled immediately after deploying Veeam backup agents.
  • Set the toggle to Off if the read-only access mode must not be enabled after deploying Veeam backup agents.

For details on the read-only access mode for Veeam backup agents, see Enabling Read-Only Access Mode.

  1. Click Apply.

Auto Deployment Settings

Configuration Example

Consider the following configuration example for automatic deployment:

  • Accept New Connections: On
  • Auto-Deployment: On
  • Backup policy to apply: Server: Entire computer. Microsoft Exchange Server. Cloud backup. Daily schedule.
  • Read-only User access: Off

With this automatic deployment configuration, as soon as a new management agent is installed and configured to communicate with Veeam Service Provider Console, the agent will be registered with Veeam Service Provider Console, and will attempt to install Veeam backup agent.

If installation is successful, the agent will configure the Veeam backup agent job settings in accordance with the Server: Entire computer. Microsoft Exchange Server. Cloud backup. Daily schedule. backup policy. Read-only access mode will not be enabled.
