  • The File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In) firewall rule must allow inbound traffic.
  • The Remote Scheduled Tasks Management (RPC and RPC-EPMAP) rule must allow inbound traffic.
  • The machine that hosts the Veeam Service Provider Console master management agent is powered on, has connection to the Internet, and can access discovered computers.
  • Client computers on which you plan to update Veeam backup agents are powered on and you have an account with local Administrator permissions on all client computers.
  • This account will be used to upload Veeam backup agent setup files to client computers and perform update.
