Rebooting Remote Computers

In some cases, you might need to reboot client computers that run Veeam Service Provider Console management agents. The most often cases when you need to perform computer reboot are:

  • Installation of Veeam backup agents: if a pending computer reboot is detected during Veeam backup agent installation, you must reboot a computer to complete the installation process.
  • Installation of the CBT Driver: after you install the CBT driver, you must reboot a client computer.

Required Privileges

To perform this task, a user must have one of the following roles assigned: Service Provider Global Administrator, Service Provider Administrator, Service Provider Operator.
